Lanvin's a romantic, well-constructed collection

PARIS – Lanvin stayed close to its roots with its menswear display on Sunday, showing a romantic collection imbued with lived-in elegance.

Superb construction was at the heart of the winter 2009-2010 collection, which featured the French label's hallmark visible seams and darts and raw hems.

Suits and jackets were cut wide, but fabrics — mostly in dusky tones of gray and black — were so supple that the silhouette remained quite narrow.

The single- and double-breasted jackets were inviting to the touch, and wide-legged pants fell in luxurious ripples. Perfectly pleated slim trousers tapered through the calf and were tucked into tall boots.

Flowing scarves, some knotted into jaunty bows, adorned necklines, and many of the models wore woolen beret-meets-beanie hats.

Lanvin's artistic director Alber Elbaz — who directs the label's menswear designer, Dutchman Lucas Ossendrijver — said they had aimed to create a collection that looks lived-in.

"I wanted to give that kind of emotion to clothes so they don't look like they you just took them from a rack in the store, but maybe from your suitcase," Elbaz told The Associated Press.
