Lanvin Fall 2016 Menswear: A Decade of Lucas Ossendrijver



Lanvin Fall Winter 2016 Men’s Runway show by designer Lucas Ossendrijver


The devil was in the details at Lucas Ossendrijver’s first solo collection of Lanvin Men’s A/W 16. He wanted the audience to see the embroidered keys, saws, and “mystic” symbols, by intimately seating everyone close to the runway, and set the mood with a dimly lit setting. Ossendrijver commented that these embroidered symbols represented working with one’s hands and tools of a craft, much like tailoring and designing. After working alongside Hedi Slimane at Dior, in 2005 Lucas Ossendrijver was hired by Lanvin to inject youth into the established fashion house. The goal was to make Lanvin Men’s as popular as Lanvin Women’s, and by democratizing the brand, now, the boutiques offer classic and contemporary pieces for all ages of men. Ossendrijver believes in a natural, more lived in look and is inspired by instinctual street style dressing than over-styled looks. This natural ease was evident in his Fall 2016 Menswear collection for Lanvin, as the models wore loose fitting trousers and wrinkled suits meant to be lived in and worn out. Ossendrijver’s belief in individual style goes further, his manner of pairing separates in different colors and different textures as a suit rather than wearing a full on tailored suit set is genius. This method of pairing adds dimension and depth to a look that is absent in a traditional suit. Accompanying the suits on the runway this season were long, tailored coats in virgin wool with wide military lapels, which were belted loosely at the waist for a more casual effect. A series of over-dyed and printed shirts were worn under patchwork statement coats and with airbrushed spray-dyed sneakers in wild colors or lace up thick soled creepers. The shoes in the show were examples of the different shoes that Ossendrijver has designed for Lanvin in celebration of his 10 year Anniversary.
