With the fall winter 2016 Lanvin Homme collection designer Lucas Ossendrijver has celebrated his 10 year anniversary as the men’s style director at the famed French fashion maison.
The studio and ateliers entered into a unique period of research and development, with the constant implication of Lucas Ossendrijver throughout the process, to be able to shake the very foundations of the winter wardrobe. The result is one that could only be achieved by this exceptional artisanal “savoir-faire” to bring about this tension between graphic effects and potential breaking points: cords are plaited on a leather biker, a coat is constructed entirely inside out , or sprayed dyed with paint to create a shadow effect, a blouson features a patchwork of suede and pony like calfskin… Though the fabrics may appear as traditional, it is the idea of the traditional masculine wardrobe itself which is subtly subverted, such as a sleeveless jacket in Japanese tweed with exterior trim, whose collar has been cut off and its darts stitched together. Or a coat in pleated needle-punched wool with a miniature Prince of Wales check on one side and contrasting check on the other. An aviator jacket reveals a piece of knit as if merely placed over one shoulder, while a suit jacket is cut like a blouson, the mandarin collar closed with an oversized zip. – from Lanvin
The collection masterfully celebrated contemporary menswear with the signature DNA of Lanvin. Ossendrijver and his team have presented an opulent collection, with a striking spotlight on outerwear and especially the leather jacket.
