After introducing its expansive Fall/Winter 2018 line, Lanvin returns with a concise lineup of goods for its Summer 2018 Pre-Collection. Menswear designer Lucas Ossendrijver taps sportswear influences for the brief collection, centering around bold colors and a variety of printed slogans.
Glen check tailoring elevates comfy staples like mockneck sweaters, anorak pullovers and printed hoodies, while pleated chino pants are afforded D-ring belts and carabiner attachments to clinch the skatewear influence, although seersucker, gabardine and technical wool fabrics elevate the everyman styling into luxury gear. Contrasting hues afford the graphics extra impact; royal blue symbols clash with forest green track jackets and its aubergine counterpart pops with white text. Meanwhile, the collection’s inverted “LANVIN” branding is granted extra consonants on the jackets, but the spelling is unchanged on the rear of a black leather jacket. Bucket hats emblazoned with food imagery and Lanvin’s new sporty sneakers complete the diverse assortment.
The range is already available to shop over on Lanvin’s web store. Meanwhile, Lanvin, the oldest active fashion house in France, was recently purchased by Shanghai-based investors.
