ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. France's oldest fashion house, Lanvin, sought to draw a line under a period of upheaval on Wednesday (September 27) with a sleek, largely monochrome collection showed by its newest artistic director. Designer Olivier Lapidus, appointed in July after the short tenure of his predecessor, Bouchra Jarrar, unveiled a pared-back line-up dominated by black, with wispy gowns and shorter, asymmetric ensembles in bright shades. The latest collection included voluminous jackets in a neoprene-style material. Lapidus also introduced splashes of color with silk prints bearing the Lanvin logo, in red, white, green and blue combinations. Lapidus' debut is one of several closely watched maiden collections at Paris Fashion Week, at a time when brands are jostling to make a mark and ride an upturn in the luxury goods industry.
