RUNWAY: Lanvin FW17Has Lanvin's Lucas Ossendrijver become a nihilist? The opening look's scarf bolding saying "Nothing" and a shirt on the left breast saying "There Is Nothing" may indicate so. However, Ossendrijver was referring to this collection's lack of accoutrements and labels. He created a collection that was simple and to the point: good clothes. The coats were great with small touches, like voluminous sleeves creating rounded silhouettes or a high belt on a trench. Some things, invariably, did not work as well, like dégradé pants which were cropped and loose, making the model wearing it, likely about 6 feet tall look like a half a foot or so shorter; heavens to think what mere mortals wearing them would look like. However, in all, the designer's take on reworked classics had enough subtlety to make the clothes covetable and sellable once these high priced items head to the stores.
