Lanvin’s known to make some fine womenswear, the Parisian fashion house has crafted exceptional attire for the menswear spectrum as well. They continue to deliver well-thought-out pieces made from the finest materials. The Torsade cap-toe dress shoe is no exception to this as it features different shades of navy leather throughout the shell while being complimented by a black heel and tone on tone stitching. The lace-ups are made in Italy and are available now through SSENSE.
Here we have an early look at Lanvin’s accessory and footwear lineup from their S/S ’13 collection. The Parisian fashion house offers up an array of product ranging from a derby shoe with reinforced rubber soles alongside boots and single monks to well-made accessories in the form of leather belts, bracelets, camera bags and jewelry. More looks below. (via hypebeast)
Steven Meisel was behind the lens for Lanvin’s F/W 2011 ad campaign. The old-school appeal of the styling works well with the campaign’s classic backdrop. The pieces look outstanding but that’s something we’ve come to expect from Lanvin, is it not? Meisel captures the collection wonderfully as his experience and expertise brought out some great stills from the shoot. We even tossed in one of our favorite looks from the women’s campaign below.
Lanvin’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection was one of the finest from this past week’s Paris shows and with good reason. Head designer Alber Elbaz went for a more masculine collection this time around with standout pieces ranging from leather shirts and stiffer fabrics to more structured outerwear, jackets and blazers.

Selectism turns us to Lanvin’s neckwear offering for Fall 2011 which happens to be filled with some amazing neckties and bowties. The long end of the necktie is finished in a wool while the short half is made from silk in a striped pattern. The bowties are really well-done as well as they feature some wool detailing atop the silk shell.
By now, you’ve probably heard plenty about H&M‘s collaboration with French fashion house Lanvin. News officially broke just a few days back and we’ve gotten our hands on the lookbook. The suiting and outerwear pieces really steal the show in this lineup. The prices are pretty affordable, as expected, with the most expensive item being a long coat priced at $249. Tees can be picked up for as little as $19.95. I hope the pieces live up to our expectations in person.
The collection releases November 20th at select locations worldwide.
With the Holiday season just around the corner, we’re seeing plenty of special collections emerging, but Lanvin‘s lineup of accessories may be our favorite. Some featured items include belts, jewelry, umbrellas, under garments, sleepwear and a whole lot more to fill the empty space under your tree. Pricey? Yes. But these pieces offer a “distinct sophistication” not easily found in most Holiday gifts.
