Paris, France – Olivier Lapidus’ first collection at Lanvin sees the fashion house making a return to its very essence, while reinventing itself once again for the 21st Century.

Olivier Lapidus found the inspiration from all the figurative elements so dear to its famous founder. Designs of which Jeanne Lanvin was best know are reinterpreted and present with kimono sleeves, pagoda sleeves, twisted or flared, flat bows, geometric cuts, clovers, jumpsuits, transparencies – appear here and there. Going even further the name and initials, in Art Deco fonts, have become “LANVIN” and “JL” prints, which add a spunky twist to the collection.

We also find subtly unbalanced dresses, bare shoulders, complex cuts for shapes that seem to float in the air; long, short and very flared trousers. For the fabrics: silk Georgette and silk crêpe, quilted cotton, super 120s wool, lamé stripes and geometric lamé on a Georgette base for a touch of gold. The mood of love and romance is in the air with the  lightness and frivolity of each silhouette.. The signature colors  of the brand are present with emerald-green, cyclamen, ruby, nude, pale blue, black white and gold.

Accessories include sunglasses, shoulder bags, sandals, chokers and jewellery. The premiere work brings the 1930s into the new futuristic dimension with all of us waiting to see more.
