The oldest fashion house still in operation, Lanvin was founded in 1889 by 22-year-old Parisian milliner Jeanne Lanvin. Her conception of style as an all-encompassing aesthetic universe established her label as an early lifestyle brand and champion of everyday elegance. Since 2006, head menswear designer Lucas Ossendrijver has produced collections that put technical innovation in the service of innate ease and refinement. Fusions of sportswear and suiting make up a key component of his vision, with unlined jackets, elevated lounge pants and sweatshirts, precisely cut trousers, and cap toe sneakers that mimic the lines of the classic derby shoe all allowing for unhindered motion while maintaining impeccable levels of finishing and quality. Pairings of high tech and traditional fabrics amplify the nuance of raw seams, hand stitching, and understated yet impactful color combinations. In a world in flux, Lanvin’s menswear is designed to function in any situation: a proposition that freedom and flexibility are the ultimate luxuries.
