Lucas Ossendrijver Exits Lanvin

PARIS — Lucas Ossendrijver is exiting Lanvin, WWD has learned.
The move comes in the wake of sweeping changes at the historic French house under its new owner Fosun International.
After 13 years at Lanvin, Ossendrijver’s final collection as its men’s designer is the pre-collection being presented to buyers at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, according to an industry source.
Lanvin is expected to pull out from the runway calendar for the upcoming Paris Fashion Week Men’s in January, the source said.
Lanvin could not be immediately be reached for comment.
Contacted by phone last Wednesday, Ossendrijver told WWD that he was still at the house, adding: “No further comment for the moment.”
Lanvin has been without a women’s designer since the departure of Olivier Lapidus last March, and it has yet to make an official announcement regarding his successor.
WWD broke the news on Oct. 8 that Lanvin has settled on Bruno Sialelli, the former head of men’s wear at Loewe, to design its women’s and men’s wear collections. It is understood it is in negotiations with Loewe parent LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton over a non-compete clause.
Finding new design and management leadership has been job number one for Fosun International, which acquired the French luxury house in February.
