Paris Fashion Week

Lanvin AW17

A quiet yet expertly executed foil to the vibrancy and vivaciousness of her predecessor, with her second season at the helm of the iconic French fashion house, Bouchra Jarrar settled into her stride, looking to the roots of the brand in her delivery of a distinctly directional take on modern Parisian sensibilities.

Presenting a mostly monochrome palette that morphed into ballerina pinks and midnight blues, the collection walked the classic Lanvin masculine-feminine line but with a fresh twist, erring more on the side of romance, with diaphanous gowns featuring frothed detailing and an interplay of textures in sheer and plissé chiffons, satin, silks and lace, but often toughened up with onyx python chain-edged boots or triple-strapped slingback slippers. And, as a precise grounding to the airy silhouettes, there was sculptural tailoring in high-waist gabardine trousers, neat jackets, jumpsuit and even a coat dress. Ornate bejewelled birds complete with feathers, meanwhile, fluttered over belts, neck ties and lapels.

Completing the collection, for this season’s Lanvin woman, accessories double-up as jewellery with card-only micro bags on chains worn cross body under coats and cardigans.
