Lanvin Womenswear Fall Winter 2021 collection hits the Paris Fashion Week entirely digital agenta with a striking lookbook and an upbeat short film celebrating the early 00s. Creative Director Bruno Sialelli teams up with Film Director Helmi for a short film captured at the Shangri-La Paris to the beats of Gwen Stefani and Eve’s hit “Rich Girl“. The party inspired video features models Paloma Elsesser, Sora Choi, He Cong, Mika Schneider, Quinn Mora, Alyda Grace, Vic Ishimwe, Lucas El Bali, Yura Nakano, and Dame Lo partying to the beats of ‘Rich Girl. Special came comes from Eve herself appearing in the video clad in a total look Lanvin.
Sialelli has created an elegant collection bringing back the elegance and upbeat nature so familiar with maison Lanvin. “She is glamorous and fabulous, a connection with Lanvin’s DNA, with the Maison’s roots a hundred years ago in the dynamic energy of the 1920s. These combine with Sialelli’s own recollections of the early Millennium – including his memories of Lanvin – to create a new synthesis, a balance between the patrimony of the house and the obsessions of our times. The mood is positive, upbeat and dressed-up. Evening for everyday. Fabrics are lustrous, tactile and sensuous: duchesse satin, taffeta, silk charmeuse, silk crepe, the glamour of animal-print faux fur. Dresses and coats flow around the body, backs gently caped, lending ceremony to every gesture – a mood of couture from the oldest Parisian maison,” shares Lanvin team talking about the woman wearing the new collection
Majority of the Lanvin Fall Winter 2021 collection focuses on beautifully designed evening dresses, so close to the maison’s irresistible DNA.
Bruno Sialelli a 31 year old French Designer took the helm of Lanvin as the Creative Director earlier this year after label decided to take a break for a season from runway collections. Sialleli is a strong addition to the Lanvin team, bringing his experience from Loewe where he was the helm of menswear. In addition to Loewe, Bruno Sialelli also brought the experience from his senior position as womenswear designer at Acne Studios, Paco Rabanne as well as at Balenciaga both with Ghesquière and Alexander Wang.
Past few years have been tumultuous for Lanvin to say the least, from multiple creative director swaps to owner Shaw-Lan Wang selling the company to the Chinese conglomerate Fosun International. Lanvin’s new CEO, Jean-Philippe Hecquet, is preparing the maison for an entirely new business model and the appointment of Bruno Sialelli is only one of the steps along the way. The newly appointed Lanvin Creative Director is expected to unite the vision of both men’s and women’s collection under one hat.
