A timeless trip, a nostalgic exploration - Let’s travel with Lanvin

The Spring 2022 Lanvin collection redefines travel. With creative director Bruno Sialelli’s unique mindset, this collection, exploring exploration, the idea of travel, our wanderlust to view the world, is a story about traveling and traversing, escape and escapades. In fact, the collection itself is a trip - showcased through motion images, like a music video, it transports and gives a taste of the ideology behind a creative outing.

The collection is nostalgic: it journeyed back to the 1990s fashion period and to the archives of Lanvin. An indulgence, an extravagance, an occasion, the notion of travel in the past is represented by the “jet-set” style. Drawn from the archive, the JL 3-D monogram is the take on the 1970s Lanvin ‘JL’ monogram with a modernist feeling. 

With Lanvin, travel blurs seasons. The collection not only travels geographically through periods, but also through sensibilities, through formal to casual. Silks mix with denim. Scuba jerseys with organzas and chiffons. Matte or gloss, fabric can subvert the attitudes and characters of the clothing, challenging and provoking. 

With Lanvin, travel is a concept that can transcend time and space. Think of this collection as a travelogue - it exports the values of signatures of the oldest Parisian fashion house to different corners of the world, expressing a style that is quintessentially Lanvin. This includes both Jeanne Lanvin, and her successors - micro-florals and couture silhouettes reflect the mid-century work of Antonio Castillo, contemporary of Balenciaga and Dior, the Lanvin logo, an evolution of that created by Jules-François Crahay in the 1970s. This heritage marks the journey of the house since its birth in 1889. 

Fabrics are frequently precious, colors delicate and feminine - pastel shades that seem bleached by the sun or lightened by water echo Lanvin’s signature 1920s hues. These colors and approaches unify men and women. Lavin's women are Swans, Truman Capote's jet-set idols. Men are music stars or cinematic heroes in oversized tailoring, in these unexpected, ice-cream shades.

The collection’s key accessories are travel-inspired monogram totes and weekenders, for voyager, and the neo-classic ’22; handbag, named after Lanvin’s historical Parisian flagship at 22 rue du Faubourg Saint- Honoré. Every journey, after all, must include a homecoming.
