Lanvin spring-summer 2020 in Paris. Little Nemo in the land of dreams.

And today we will again go to Paris, where the Lanvin fashion house presented its new spring-summer 2020 collection at the significant Week of Fashion, High Design Art, Luxury and French Chic.

The show took place on the embankment in the garden of the Branly Museum, which collected in its collection samples of the primary art of the peoples of Africa, Asia, Oceania and America, and now also became for a while a window into the fantasy world of the fashion designer of the Lanvin house.

In my opinion, it was not the best idea to hold a fashion show in the open air. The spectators, as in a tropical forest, sat in the pouring rain, hiding under the domes of transparent umbrellas. Many people didn't really like this kind of creativity.

Try to hold an umbrella and try to photograph interesting moments at the same time. In addition, to fully immerse themselves in the atmosphere of the fashion show, viewers had to listen to music on headphones and a little frightening and distracting quotes from Lord of the Flies.

So, after the show, the opinions of the assembled public, as well as of fashion critics, were divided. Someone considered the collection very similar to the Loewe brand, where the lead designer Bruno Sialelli previously worked, and someone called the new line from Lanvin innovative and fantastic. To some, fashionable images seemed baggy and disheveled, while to others - graceful and attractive. In general, that is still a puzzle. And I will just say this: there is something to look at and something to think about.

The theme of the spring-summer collection sounds rather mysterious: "Land of dreams". For inspiration in his creative work, the designer turned to the old comic strip "Little Nemo in the Land of Dreams", created by an American graphic artist and animator at the beginning of the 20th century. This is a story about a little boy who has amazing dreams, and at the end he always wakes up in his room.

As the couturier himself said about the new collection: “I dedicated it to the freedom to dream. Here, rather, it's all about emotions, including nostalgia for childhood. " Therefore: "The collection turned out to be quite fantastic and unrealistic."

The designer was allowed to use pictures from the comics as a print. Amusing drawings adorned neckerchiefs, T-shirts, sweatshirts, T-shirts, long-sleeved shirts, flowing floor-length dresses and bags. All clothes seem to be created a little for growth, suits resemble pajama style, and in a coat, a plaid jacket or a long jacket, you can wrap yourself up like a blanket.

But there is another story that inspired Bruno Sialelli for a new fashion line. In India, there is a workshop employing only 25 women who are proficient in the art of very rare and complex embroidery. Craftswomen helped the designer to create dresses, which received the name - bather's dress. Thanks to the unique embroidery technique, the fabric is soft, drapes beautifully and does not hinder movement, as is usually the case.

Of the characteristic elements of the cut of new fashionable outfits, I would like to draw your attention to asymmetry, pleats, elongated sleeves, a slightly lowered waist of trousers, where the fastener is also asymmetric. Some of the stylish looks are decorated with a multicolored checkerboard print, pictures from the Kama Sutra, a pattern in the form of chains, beads and gold coins, as well as a strip. There is a clear influence of the nautical theme: Panama hats, knots and ropes in the form of ornaments. And all this - in a bright palette and with bold combinations of colorful shoes and bags of different geometric shapes.
