Lanvin Spring 2013 Menswear

00030fullscreen 00090fullscreen 00280fullscreen 00350fullscreenLanvin‘s men’s show today marked a first for the label: the first time the clothes had been shown on an elevated catwalk, because, said Alber Elbaz, “It’s time to elevate fashion.” But Lanvin has always made time for that, which was clearer in this collection than ever before. From beginning to end, it had a relentless drive, defined by the tension between fashionable opposites: classic versus high-tech, linear versus rounded, detail versus no detail. And, although the presentation was staged with boyish models who were manorexic to the point of parental concern, the collection itself was actually infused with a more generous spirit than has ever been manifest in Lanvin menswear.
