“We’re thrilled to welcome Bruno as the new Creative Director of Lanvin,” says Jean-Philippe Hecquet, Lanvin’s Chief Executive Officer. “His singular and very personal vision, his audacity, his culture, his energy and ability to build a strong creative team definitely convinced us. I can’t wait to discover Bruno’s first collections which will fully bring back to life this beautiful and unique fashion house, and once again inspire a passion among our customers.”
Sialelli joins us from his position of Menswear Designer Director at Loewe. Previous to that, he had accrued extensive experience at Balenciaga, Acne Studios, and Paco Rabanne. His proven ability to seamlessly transition between menswear and womenswear will stand Lanvin in great stead as luxury fashion increasingly blurs the boundaries between the sexes. Sialelli’s vision of a modern Lanvin is fresh and Lanvin looks forward to his contemporary interpretations of the house’s iconic codes, while introducing many of his own.
“I am delighted and honoured to join Lanvin, a house founded by a visionary woman who among the first French couturiers dared to offer a global universe with a very wide field of expression,” explains Sialelli. “Bringing emotions through compelling stories and defining a modern attitude are going to be exciting challenges in continuing this legacy.”
