lanvin spring 2011 menswear

lucas ossendrijver and alber elbaz presented their spring 2011 menswear collection for lanvin on the 27th of last month. it was my favourite collection from the spring 2011 season, it just had this kind of dressed up, casual ease that i find really refreshing and new. the looks seem just effortlessly cool, the sense of layering without the heaviness, in the tromp l'oeil cotton tee/wool vest and the drop shoulder double-breasted jacket with the flesh coloured sleeves and navy vest front. this was also seen in the jacket/coat concotion that draped in the front. i loved the thin long sleeved tees, one with a trompe l'oeil cummerbund, another with wrapped shoulders. the silhouettes, however simple, many of the overall looks were highly decorated, borrowing from the womens collection, the tribal-inspired jewellery looked every bit as right on the boys as it does the girls. the patched leather vest and coat, again hinted to the tribal but in a modern, sharp way. the bags and shoes felt very industrial, with chunky hardware and their mix of suede, leather, nylon. a visual feast of highly desirable clothes and accessories from the powerhouse of lanvin
