Something in the Air? Lanvin, Paris

Another great collection from Lanvin – one of the top shows in Paris this season. Like BV, a mix of bold reds and purples played against a tranquil desert of neutrals.

I am very happy that the David Letterman-style of DB buttoning has been picked up by Lanvin this season. Mark my words, next season Lanvin will replace the current patent leather sneakers with patent leather wrestling shoes, circa Letterman 1985.

    Wow, I feel so uninformed! I knew Lanvin did spectacular womens clothes, but I had no idea his mens line was just as sumptuous and gorgeous. That's a goal in life – to afford, buy, wear a Lanvin dress like I own the world. :)

    Double breasted work on Letterman because he's tall and skinny. The majority of us aren't.

    I love a good DB, but not buttoned that way. I'll be waiting for those wrestling shoes. EG Smith socks going to make a comeback as well?

    I love Lavin's recent color pallets and am glad to see that same richness carried over into the Men's collection..these are pieces worth "borrowing"! Thank you

    Love the colors- so jewel-like! His men's clothes may rival the women's, but both are TDF.

    lovely lanvin collection as usual, but i think the Dries van Noten collection was great, but i know…it may be a bit too european for americans…i hope yo say something about it..those print jackets and coats by Dries were heaven!

    Letterman likes the 'flap' vent on his suits. Hideous.

    Common elements in fashion shows are rarely coincidental.

    Love the colors. We'll probably see more of them in days/months to come.

    Lanvin is synonymous with classic elegance in my book. This men's collection is beyond beautiful. The washed out tones..the flow…you've captured it all.

    Alber Elbaz, what would Lanvin do without you…

    The colors in the first shot are simply gorgeous! It all seems a very loungey, wine inspired deal.

    I'd like the purple suit for my self.

    What is it that Letterman wears on his feet. Loafers? Spats?
