Bruno Sialelli presents the Lanvin fall winter 2022 collection as part of Paris Fashion Week. A “celebration of the paradox and contradiction of fashion” is explained as the “contrasting themes that energized the work of Jeanne Lanvin.” Sialelli continues this exercise with his own playful use of opaque fabrics, whimsical prints, and clever arrangements. We also see some daring new evening wear that looks red carpet ready.
Zigzagging between craft and style, the collection has a renewed vibration that recalls the excitement and whimsy of Alber Elbaz who recently passed. A collection about tribute and heritage? Perhaps, but Lanvin fall winter 2022 is also a collection that pushes back up against the increasingly number of cultural contradictions we face every day. And it does it in a seriously not-so-serious way…a sense of humor the house can once again call its own.
