Lanvin S/S 2012 by lLucas Ossendrijver and Alber Elbaz
The colour palette at Lanvin was, as usual, sombre and subtle i.e. perfect. No unnecessarily brash or loud colour injections – unless you count a red and yellow suit – interfered with the show. And since the colour scheme was all classic Lanvin (beige, green, black, burgundy), it was left to the fabrics to surprise us. There also seemed to be a preference for collar-less shirts/jackets/coats which works nicely with the Lanvin aesthetic. This collection was pulled together so well nothing felt out of place.
