LANVIN Menswear Collection Autumn Winter 2018 – The Sartorial Style 

Autumn Winter 2018 – The Sartorial Style 

« Je me suis concentré sur le vêtement les plus ennuyeux qui soit, presque démodé, tiré du patrimoine et de l’origine de l’homme Lanvin : le costume. Qu’est-ce qu’un costume ? Deux pièces, une veste et un pantalon, coupés dans le même tissu. J’ai voulu déconstruire cette idée. Quand on regarde l’ensemble, on ne sait plus très bien ce qui est dessus, dessous. Ces mélanges font pour moi un costume moderne. »,  Lucas Ossendrijver, direction de création du prêt-à-porter homme.

‘I focused on the most boring clothes, almost out of date, from the heritage and origin of the Lanvin man.’ Now, what does the world Sartorial mean actually? Well, it is relating to tailoring, clothes, or style of dress.  With this attention to detail is much welcomed. Who does not like a well-dressed man? With the trends being more luxury streetwear Esq.  It is wonderful to see a come back of tailoring.   Lucas Ossendrijver, direction de création du prêt-à-porter homme.

This season, the sartorial spirit becomes a pretext for all experiments, where the urban meets tradition in the LANVIN menswear collection for Fall.

In the Fall-Winter 2018 collection, the costumes are cut in familiar English fabrics but worked differently. On a coat with shoulders and narrow sleeves, whose folds are marked with iron, is applied a piece of a military jacket. The tailor’s pants, cut in the same frayed fabric, it worked like a trellis.

A men’s jacket lined with nylon appears on a double-breasted coat.  With accessories to match, a man bag and funky hat. We also see splashes of color in polo inspired tops.

A fisherman’s vest is superimposed on a plaid jacket. Here and there, the different pieces merge, parka, vest, jacket coat … The pace blurs, the edge of abstraction, to simply reveal a game of materials, unprecedented proportions, and details from the urban cloakroom: Velcro, zips, puffed pockets, military details, reflective tapes, technical linings … Hybridization is king. The costume has never been so modern.

We do still see the streetwear elements in the collection.  Yet, the collection also speaks to climate change wear.  On any given day around the world, the weather could change at any minute and you want to be prepared.  I also like the ankle cut trousers.
