I only hope that he will find a house worthy of his talent.
There are so many fashion houses with a weak menswear department (Givenchy, YSL, Berluti, Vuitton, Fendi). He can also be perfect for contemporary brands (Acne Studios, Carven)...Even Margiela.
I've always appreciate his talent. He is a really gifted designer that has been quite underestimated over time.
He was really one of the few who reinvented menswear with using very sophisticated fabrics, bold volumes and finishing.
He was the first to introduce the idea of a luxurious designer sneaker.
Even if Lanvin menswear hasn't been the same since Alber left (they were quite a duo), his contribution is huge.
Well done Lucas!
For some reason I'm not surprised at all by this piece of news. I'm surprised he actually lasted that long, with all the turmoil at Lanvin over the last three years (it must have been hell, really, to be able to keep some peace of mind and trudge on).
I am not surprised by this. It was bound to happen. I hope he is leading a menswear brand.Actually would be nice if he works with Claire at Givenchy but I don't think that would be happening.
Lanvin has signed with ex-Loewe designer Bruno Sialelli, sources say
Bruno have a good resume, I think that is a good choice for Lanvin, but I dont think that LMHV will let him go and break the 1 year clause.
He can pull a Karl....
He can simply set his design studio and for one year, they design the collection and setup his vision and in one year, he will be officially the creative director of Lanvin. Karl did that when he joined Chanel.
Lanvin needs an overall revival anyway and i'm sure they have a lot of stock to get rid of...
I hope he will bring back the classic bag designs of Alber and build the accessories line from that.
I'm sad he's gone, I loved his menswear at Lanvin. But he's been there forever, maybe it's good for him too to leave and do something else . He would be great at a number of places, Berluti comes to mind straight away
I am not too excited to hear it may be Bruno....Lanvin needs something powerful,womanly and truly new. Maybe even not ignoring what Alber was doing there, but he should building up from there and taking it to a totally new level,doing something unexpected.....If I read Bruno and see the works, it seems it will be the same boring nice looking not outstanding sauce everyone else is doing right now. I have the feeling the outcome would be a /loewe/chloe/rabanne/acne/phoebe/ghesquiere-ish kind of sauce....but ok, nothing is decided yet.
I'm rather happy Lucas is gone. As much as I loved his work there, I feel like the last few collections were getting kind of stale. Great clothes, yeah, but it started to seem like an ongoing parade of oversided coats + pants, worn with a pair of sneakers (which still baffles me). It looked like he was running out of steam, so maybe a fresh new start is due.
There's never been a single item from Loewe (esp. their menswear) that ever piqued my interest, so, that's all I have to say about this new guy.
