With inspiration drawn from Art Deco and Ancient Egypt, Bruno Sialelli reinvented Lanvin’s heritage for its Fall/Winter 2022 collection
The latest seasonal collection by Bruno Sialelli for Lanvin is a celebration of the paradox and contradiction of fashion, and of the contrasting themes surrounding Jeanne Lanvin. The collection plays on opacity and transparency, a play of hard and soft, of nostalgia and modernism. It is a reflection of Lanvin’s heritage, yet with all reflections, it is refracted, reinvented and an illusion – a modern reconfiguration of the codes of Jeanne Lanvin.
The silhouettes are narrow, a contradiction between sharpness and fluidity. A sense of polish, rigor and sophistication inspired by the maison’s couture heritage is at the focus of the collection. Textures are rich, lustrous and with deep colors. Embroidery is given the graphic feel of print with stacked sequins that resembles polka dots and others seem to pixelate. Here are our top looks from the collection.
