Discover LANVIN Fall Winter 2022.23 Collection, that celebrates the paradox and contradiction of fashion, presented on March 5th, during the recently finished Paris Fashion Week. Designer Bruno Sialelli plays with contrasts such as opacity and transparency, hard and soft, nostalgia and modernism. The collection offers a modern reconfiguration of Jeanne Lanvin‘s codes. It was ispired by Art Deco and Ancient Egypt, and the way Ancient Egypt’s aesthetics shaped the aesthetics of Art Deco. The collection also explores illusions and imaginations of the past, and projections and predictions of a future.

Silhouettes are narrow, shoulders emphatic with a tailored swagger, applied to coats and jumpsuits but also loaned to soft dresses – a contradiction between sharpness and fluidity. A sense of polish, rigor and sophistication inspired by the maison’s couture heritage prevails, across all genders. Menswear suits are presented formally, with foulard necklines or shirt and tie, sportswear given a couture polish, sneakers fused with formal shoes; womenswear is sharply tailored or extravagantly embroidered, dressed up, with high-heeled platform Mary-Janes or sandals that combine calfskin or satin with carbon-fiber.

Textures are rich and lustrous, colors deep. Leather is given a preciousness, polished in gem tones. There is a game of make-believe with surfaces: Tessellated Art Deco patterns, like tiles or marquetry, may be evoked through print, knit, or fils-coupe silk-velvet, hand-painted, their lustre pretending embroidery. Conversely, embroidery is given the graphic feel of print – stacked sequins resemble polka-dots, others seem to pixellate, 21st century decoration dissolving. Fabrics can pretend, too: cashmere is washed for softness, silk panné velvets bonded to jersey for weight, tailored with precision. When touched, held, clothes transform and evolve at your fingertips.” – from Lanvin
