The 31-year-old designer’s first collection looked to the travels of house founder Jeanne Lanvin for inspiration
Bruno Sialelli may be hard at work as the new boy at Lanvin but he has holidays on the mind. For his first menswear show since his appointment as creative director of the house in January, the French designer mentally took the audience out of sweltering Paris and brought them to the cool breeze of the seaside. In real life, he invited them to a swimming pool in the 19th arrondissement and provided peach ice teas to set the scene.
“I love my job,” he said backstage after the show, “but the holidays is always the best part of our lives and I wanted to express something very bright and playful and [capture] this idea of travelling.”
