This season it has been a very graphic (flowers blossoming everywhere, but Lanvin was contrary. "Nothing techno or digital," said Elbaz. Instead of print, there was texture. The last outfits were a collage of touch. "A new way of being elegant" was the way that Lucas Ossendrijver defined the sensuality of such pieces. Likewise the absence of ties and, often, shirts. But the gloriously oversized coats were more than adequate compensation, even as they helped to confirm another of the season's trends. The elusiveness of summer in London and Paris means that seasonless dressing is, at the very least, the most sensible option in these environmentally troubled times.

In few words: That combination of utility and glamour, purpose and presence is the Lanvin´s man for S/S2014. For me one of the best S/S2014 menswear collections.
