Yesterday’s Lanvin show began with a series of strong monochrome looks. They were severe, industrial and utilitarian. Oversized coats flung off the models' shoulders, garments were pulled together at the waist and tailored shorts skimmed the tops of their thighs. It was a dramatic way to open the show, particularly within a setting filled with industrial spotlights reminiscent of those of a Hollywood movie set. Then came the colour. Fuchsia pink was set against aqua blue and bold green. They took over suits, shirts and leather jackets, offering a vibrant counterpart to softened the industrial silhouettes of the show. It was a collection of drama, precision and one that was showcased best under bright lights.
