lanvin men spring 2012

Paris: The look was hyper-masculine at Lanvin’s heroic male-themed S/S 12 show. Garments cut from leathers and reptile skins and elongated torso proportions made for sturdy silhouettes. Military outerwear styles and matched sets – which ranged from coordinating tunic, coat and pant ensembles to fluid silk suits – reflected the show’s “uniform” sub-theme, while blunt caesar haircuts, collarless necklines and bags worn slung across the body conjured warriors of past eras. –Whitney Kessler
