Designer Bruno Sialelli presented LANVIN Spring Summer 2022 Men’s and Resort 2022 Women’s Collections, that explore travel as an indulgence and an extravagance, with a fashion film directed by Helmi. Stars of the video are Alyda Grace, HyunJi Shin, Luv Resval, Lucas El Bali, and Jodeci. In charge of styling was Carlos Nazario, with casting direction from Rachel Chandler. Beauty is work of hair stylist Yann Turchi, and makeup artist Cécile Paravina. The collections were inspired by the brand’s archives as well as with the 1990s style, and the glamour of travel in the past. For the season French fashion house also revisits and reimagines the 1970s Lanvin ‘JL’ monogram.
“Travel blurs seasons: clothes cover different terrains and locales, different climates and intentions. Silks mix with denims, scuba jerseys with organzas and chiffons, for him and her. Matte or gloss, fabric can subvert the attitudes and characters of the clothing, challenging and provoking.There is a sense of the former formality and anticipation of travel – polished looks evocative of the 1960s, tailoring, and the precious embroideries and embellishment characteristic of Lanvin – but they mix with the mood of MTV, the feel of surfer guys and girls, off duty and in action. The collection travels geographically, through periods, but also through sensibilities, from formal to casual, a map of moods.
Lanvin’s home is Paris: this travelogue exports the values and signatures of the oldest Parisian fashion house to different corners of the world, expressing a style that is quintessentially Lanvin. This includes both Jeanne Lanvin, and her successors – micro-florals and couture silhouettes reflect the mid-century work of Antonio Castillo, contemporary of Balenciaga and Dior, the Lanvin logo an evolution of that created by Jules-François Crahay in the 1970s. This heritage is another trip – it marks the journey of the house since its birth in 1889. Expressing an idea of Lanvin that travels through both space and time, fabrics are frequently precious, colors delicate and feminine – pastel shades that seem bleached by the sun or lightened by water, but also echo Lanvin’s signature 1920s hues.” – from Lanvin
