menswear collections: lanvin, spring

by Jeremy Danté

the lanvin men’s SS11 collection hosted a number of wide ranged looks this season. i was quite sure what the inspiration was from looking at the collection as many of the outfits were similar in some areas & too different the next. models walked the runways adorned in necklaces & seen with bare chests. stylistically, the collection was a miss for me. while im usually accustomed to cleanliness in design, being able to appreciate that worn look- here my style preference was not at all satisfied. dull use of color was presented as forms of texture were seen with the collections closing pieces. while i like many more of the formal looks more than those of the casual numbers within the collection, i found myself underwhelmed. im not sure why the lanvin label has been a bit off to me lately; but even recent campaign images  have left me seeking much more than provided.
