Editorial

The Lanvin runway include a mixture of masculine and feminine just as Bouchra Jarrar intended, not to pay tribute to men but to express the tenderness and strength of women – a theme already included in her previous collection. A ballerina dress made from a cloud of pale chiffon came in various versions juxtaposed with fishnet tights and pointed zipped boots. The same combination featured in ethereal satin slip dresses, while the masculine looks, classic trousers and tailored blazers and coats were worn with patent ballet flats, ruched tops or sheer lace shirts. The contrasts continued with patent leather and feathers and sequins, sharp suits decorated with flowers, maxi-brooches on rigorous outerwear. It was femininity and rigour used on classic pieces to be combined in complete freedom.
