Relaxing the Rules: Lanvin Men’s Spring 2016

If Lanvin had a breakfast club, one would imagine that it would be like the house’s Sunday morning show at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, where models swaggered about like John Bender — the rebellious one. From the hand of of men’s designer Lucas Ossendrijver, along with artistic director Alber Elbaz, the fine threads hit the runway in relaxed anti-style. Outerwear was oversized, with pushed-up sleeves; pants were roomy and pleated; shirts were frayed; and bags and backpacks were big enough to carry assorted textbooks and paraphernalia. If you threw in Molly Ringwald, with her red coif and lip gloss, it would have been the chicest detention ever.
