SHOWstudio Lanvin S/S 18 Panel Discussion

Last week, I returned to SHOWstudio to discuss the Lanvin Womenswear S/S 18 show. Post Alber Elbaz the house has moved from creative director to creative director, with two in two years – first Bouchra Jarrar and now ‘e-couture master’ Olivier Lapidus. Chaired by Lou Stoppard, I was also joined by Central Saint Martins' Honor Rose and Maya Menon, Polimoda's Irene Frosinini and University of the Creative Arts' Roisin O'Hare to talk about how Lanvin can find its place in the digital landscape, the concept of the brand becoming the 'French Michael Kors' and Lapidus' first collection at the helm of the oldest fashion house in France.
