Sports daily occurrence and Parisian classics
In a past Loukas Ossendriyver – to the leading designer of a man’s strip of clothes of the house of Lanvin – under sensitive management of creative director Albert Elbaz had to answer many times a question why in seasonal collections of a brand is almost unreal to find the 1st monophonic suit. Ossendriver’s comments usually were are as follows: «The classical version of a man’s suit became outdated and began to remind more a uniform therefore also I when business concerns my clothes, prefer a combination of trousers and jackets of the most different flowers and essentially different from each other on style and the invoice of fabrics».
The new collection of the designer, actually, did not become an exception. Though in it after all there was a place to two suits: to the gray fitted jacket clasped on two buttons, in a combination to free wide trousers in style of the 40th years and a polo-neck of mustard color and to one more gray suit with a jacket, differing bolshenny sloping shoulders in style of the 60th. The main part of a collection included the ensembles constructed generally on contrast and unexpected compositions. Narrow and volume, vast and sports, usual and technological. Among the materials used by the designer, it was possible to note obvious presence of a soft flannel, skin, very narrow wool, smooth fur and rough felt – and all this in chocolate-brown, light brown, gray, strawberry-pink, light pink and black tones.
This collection deprived of rigid rules presented to the audience a true art of combinations, is thin balancing boundaries futurism, sports daily occurrence and the Parisian classics. And, to all to other, according to eyewitnesses, from it blew as infinite freedom and independence – as if the invitation for everyone to become her coauthor.
