Lanvin has gone for full-on retro glamour for its fall/winter 2020 collection.
Creative director Bruno Sialelli, who was appointed to helm the French house in January 2019, presented his third line at La Galerie des Gobelins as part of Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday, with the show attracting celebrities such as Isabelle Huppert, Yolanda Hadid, Tyga, Teyana Taylor, Louis Vuitton menswear designer Virgil Abloh, and British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful.
Regarding his inspiration for the line, Sialelli looked through the archives of label founder Jeanne Lanvin and contemplated the peak of the couture brand during its 1920s heyday.
To begin, a model walked the runway in a burgundy leather wing coat with matching boots and teal leather gloves. A number of similar silhouettes followed, all accessorised with either gold bracelets, gloves, and calf-length boots.
Coats were a big focus, with Sialelli offering up leather, check, and belted wool versions with oversized shoulder detailing, with Bella Hadid stepping out in a luxurious white number with gold buttons and fluffy collar.
“LANVIN!!! My dream coat, music, show … thank you to my dears,” the model captioned a snap on Instagram following the spectacle.
Elsewhere, the designer included long printed dresses, sheer black outfits with lace trim, knitwear separates and chic suiting, with the choice of beige and mint green fabric for the two-pieces referencing the signature pastel hues of the house.
To conclude, Sialelli unveiled a range of flapper-esque dresses, with Adut Akech in a black and silver beaded ensemble and Gigi Hadid sporting a shorter style alongside a navy coat and red gloves.
“Kicked off Paris closing the beautiful @lanvinofficial show yesterday. Congrats & thank you @brunosialelli,” she posted.
