Alber Elbaz and Lucas Ossendrijver of Lanvin explore the balance of shape and proportion in the latest fall/winter menswear collection imagined by the Parisian fashion house. Doing so with an honest commitment to simplicity, the pair produced a variety of clean and largely neutrally colored looks that started with re-imagined urban styles before eventually wading into the fringes of utilitarian futuristic fashion. The overall result was one that was sporty and unassuming, albeit slightly experimental.
Examples include streamlined leather jackets and turtleneck sweaters paired with baggy pants, oversize parkas and coats, and large tops that flowed unhindered at the arms and hips. The monochrome feel of some of the looks is effectively overcome through the skillful incorporation of simple patterns and the sparing use of contrasting elements such as slim ties.
