LANVIN WOMEN'S FALL / WINTER 2020

CONVERSATION PIECE


Crossing lines of dialogue - other voices, different personalities, points of view. The Lanvin Fall/Winter 2020 collection is a collection of discussions between past and present, patrimony and modernity, all using the language of the Maison to communicate to the now.

Lanvin’s 1949 collaboration with the French poet and author Louise de Vilmorin on the book L'Opéra de l'Odorat - in itself a collaboration, prefaced by Colette and illustrated by Guillaume Gillet with watercolours and expressive calligrams, is a source of graphicism. Words wind their way into illustrative lines of print, expressive watercolours are printed across feathers and silks. The perfume and beauty lines of Lanvin are translated into bijoux de fantaisie and buttons furrowed like the flaçon of Lanvin’s signature 1927 fragrance, Arpège; Lanvin’s cosmetics suggest a whispered color palette of powder blue and blush-pink, bordeaux, rouge feu and rose-midi. Furthermore, their forms are used for accessories - minaudière handbags are formed from overscale lipstick and rouge compacts, like surreal objets d’art. Lanvin’s conversation with designer Armand Albert Rateau resulted in the extraordinary interior of her home on rue Barbet de Jouy - a zoomorphic wonderland of animaux transmogrified into furniture, here translated again into jewellery and accessories. Menswear - originally launched in 1926 - here underscores the women’s silhouettes, each borrowing from the other.
