BEACH BIRDS

_____

The spectacular arena of the CND, which is not too dissimilar from La Cité Radieuse in Marseille by Le Corbusier where LANVIN’s Creative Director Bruno Sialelli grew up,  acts as a launchpad for this new journey.

 

The collection is entitled Beach Birds after a choreography by Merce Cunningham where each dancer performed to their tempo, like a flock of birds enjoying themselves on the seashore.

Corto Maltese, Hugo Pratt’s comic book hero, is the key inspiration behind this youth, bound for or recently returned from the ends of the earth. Corto with his craggy beauty, his officer’s coat, his insatiable curiosity. But Corto shaken up by contemporary touches, by skateboarders as documented by Hugh Holland, the pioneer photographer in 1970’s California, free-wheeling dudes with their sun-scorched hair, sharks teeth around their necks, hanging out on beaches around the world – another reference to Beach Birds.

 

In the fluent imaginary world of Bruno Sialelli, women always have a place among men. They wrap themselves in coat-capes with trumpet sleeves and Prince of Wales checks, or long, inordinately flowing dresses with ethereal flounces, pine cone-shaped minaudières on their wrists.

Men’s Fall-Winter 2020 – Look 56

For a trip, even on the fly, one still needs to pack. The bags are the ultimate in excellence. Here is the Bogey, open sea-style, imposing its personality with a subtle front pleat, or this new model in stiff leather, like a carry-on briefcase for the plane.

Trousers are short, some toying with the width to taper at the ankles, finished by XXL skate shoes with super-wide laces; the skater outfit lifted with a stroke of the pen...and a crack of the whip.
