Lanvin S/S 2017

Lanvin S/S 2017

Scene setting: Doing away with the usual evening atmosphere at Lanvin, Bouchra Jarrar moved the house’s show to mid-day and to a formal, authoritative government building: the Hôtel de Ville de Paris.

Mood board: Bouchra Jarrar’s vision for Lanvin is lighter, more crisp and with a dark side that is perhaps more mature and womanly rather than youthful and flirty. A kind of sérieux made an entrance at the house, via striped trouser suits and black-and-white trouser and shirt combos.

Finishing touches: The new Lanvin woman, however, still knows how to be playful, and the flower brooches, enlarged floral prints, asymmetrical décolletés and sequins on dresses kept the lighthearted side, that is synonymous with the house, alive.
