For the Lanvin Fall 2021 RTW collection, the joie de vivre, elegance, and frivolity of the past and a vision of the future are rooted in optimism.
The Lanvin woman is known: she is glamorous and fabulous, a connection with Lanvin’s DNA, with the Maison’s roots a hundred years ago in the dynamic energy of the 1920s. These combine with Sialelli’s own recollections of the early Millennium – including his memories of Lanvin – to create a new synthesis, a balance between the patrimony of the house and the obsessions of our times.
The mood is positive, upbeat and dressed-up. Evening for everyday. Fabrics are lustrous, tactile and sensuous: duchesse satin, taffeta, silk charmeuse, silk crepe, the glamour of animal-print faux fur. Dresses and coats flow around the body, backs gently caped, lending ceremony to every gesture – a mood of couture from the oldest Parisian maison.
The whole collection is showcased via an ironic, humorous ode to the MTV music video. The soundtrack is ‘Rich Girl’ by Gwen Stefani, featuring Eve – to whom Lanvin and Bruno Sialelli are thankful for her friendly cameo in the film, reprising her iconic rap solo from the 2004 original.
