MR PORTER, the award-winning online destination for men’s style, is pleased to launch an exclusive anniversary capsule collection with luxury French label, Lanvin. The carefully curated collection for Autumn/Winter 2016 is comprised of 11 pieces and has been crafted to honour its men’s artistic director, Mr Lucas Ossendrijver’s 10th Anniversary with Lanvin Homme.
Mr Ossendrijver joined the Lanvin House in 2005 under the guidance of Alber Elbaz and from then on developed the menswear business. Lucas’s attention to detail and his harmony with fabrics have significantly advanced the components of shape that defines Lanvin menswear today.
The exclusive collection which will launch globally on MR PORTER on 8th November 2016, showcases a luxurious yet relaxed range of ready-to-wear and accessories in a colour palette of burgundy, grey and navy. Key pieces include the rich burgundy suit jacket and trousers and two cotton bowling style shirts adorned with coloured piping. The timeless brown bomber jacket features a delicate key and flower applique that continues throughout the collection on a classic cotton navy t-shirt and black Harrington jacket. The footwear offering includes the iconic urban leather sneaker updated by hand with a blue and black spray-paint design, and a classic suede derby shoe.
“It is an honour for MR PORTER to launch an exclusive 10th Anniversary collection with Lanvin Homme. During Lucas Ossendrijver’s stretch as men’s artistic director, he has built an incredibly influential arm of the Lanvin empire with pieces that are coveted globally. The capsule collection showcases Lucas’s fashion-forward vision through incorporating iconic pieces with his signature detail-focused aesthetic – we can’t wait for it to launch onsite in November!”
Daniel Todd, MR PORTER Buyer
“I cannot think of a better partner than MR PORTER to celebrate my 10th Anniversary with Lanvin Homme and launch the capsule. The pieces we developed for this collection are based on iconic items with special handcrafted treatments and finishings. For me they really represents the craftsmanship and vision that Lanvin Homme stands for.”
