Lanvin reveals details for Lanvin Lab, with Future as first creative director 

After Bruno Sialelli’s exit in April, Lanvin has announced plans for its next chapter. Following Sialelli’s four-year tenure at the French house, Lanvin does not intend to install another traditional creative director, and is instead opting to follow the increasingly popular format of inviting cultural figures to oversee one-off collections. Newly-announced Lanvin Lab will welcome tastemakers to collaborate each season, and first on the bill is Grammy Award-winning musician Future. According to a media alert, the first collection, which will be presented during Paris Fashion Week this Fall, will nod to music. Specifically, how music inspired founder Jeanne Lanvin, whose daughter and muse, Marguerite, was an accomplished musician. The brand added in the alert that Madame Lanvin was always an arbiter of culture, and her ability to bring together writers, musicians, actors, theaters, and design aficionados during her heyday would serve to inspire Lanvin Lab. The upcoming offering will include ready to wear for women, men, and accessories. Atlanta-born Future is known for his eclectic personal style, and his popularity includes an Instagram account that boasts 24million+ followers. Future’s past clothing/merchandise endeavors include the lines Life Is a High and Freebandz, on which he enlisted his longtime creative director Fred Foster. Watch this space!
