Black and white movies of the female spy came to mind with the Lanvin show. The seductive female lead wearing a wide brimmed hat, temptingly covering one eye in a dusky street as she surveys the potential villain. All the more so exaggerated by the lustrous fabrics on display, feathers, fur and velvet, wrapped up in a tassel fit for the Palace of Versailles itself.
Floor skimming gowns were mixed with cropped fitted blazers, feminine floral prints mixed with pinstripe two pieces, each outfit hinting a mix of femininity and masculine power. Lanvin compiled a collection that modernized the mood of time gone by and threw in an unexpected twist of a nod to sportswear in the form of a double racer stripe.
