The Lanvin Fall/Winter 2023 collection, designed by Bruno Sialelli, embodies the essence of creation and the thrill of discovery. This collection is a manifestation of pure imagination, inviting the viewer to become a curator through their own lens.
Lanvin, the oldest fashion house still in operation in Paris, has a rich history that the collection draws upon. It takes us on a journey through time, with glimpses of the 1940s and 1980s and references to periods such as the 18th century, Renaissance, and even the medieval era. These references are brought to life in unexpected ways with a modern and innovative touch. The collection features studs that resemble polka-dots, wool gazar with a techno sheen, and embellishments that harken back to the mirrored interiors and Murano bibelots of Jeanne Lanvin’s apartment.
At the heart of the collection is the couture spirit of Lanvin, with a focus on modern craftsmanship in handmade embroideries, exclusive fabrics, and master tailoring. Every detail in the collection exudes the passion, expertise, and joy of creation, from the technicolor brilliance of the color palette to the raw refinement of the finishes.
The accessories in the collection showcase modern craftsmanship with streamlined elegance. The Concerto handbag has been updated in bold hues, and a new soft bag style takes its name and jewels from the house’s signature Mélodie bijoux. Women’s shoes are crafted from a single piece of leather, while men’s shoes blur the line between athletic and formal. Embroidered gloves and hoods are couture statements in their own right.
Cycles of history, an inward gaze, and a fashion house steeped in tradition come together to create a dream-like reality. The collection is a rediscovery of French elegance and exuberance, reflecting the mythical creation of a Paris that exists in our imagination. The soul of Lanvin shines through in this imaginative and beautiful collection.
