Models came out and walked through the courtyard of a former monastery, flanked by burning beacons. Stand out fabrics were knitwear and lightweight quilted outerwear. The styling was subtle, made up of layers letting dashes of bright colour stand out against an earthy toned collection palette.
The collection was elegant and restrained and opened with a brown pilled wool belted coat, over white trousers and brown leather boots. Colours came in bubblegum pink turtlenecks and a red jumper, which stood out against the browns and caramels.
Strong tailoring was present at the Lanvin show this season in the form suits and reworked anoraks. Lucas Ossendrivjer made the point that the suit is modern camouflage, worn to blend in. Performance parkas appeared in traditional tailoring fabrics. Ossendrivjer also paired the suits with forest prints, made from his own photographs.

The show was inspired by the marbled endpapers in old books. The nylon patterned windcheaters that made up the final line-up was visually stunning. The trousers worn were tartan and check and made central with several suits, as well as English embroidery at the base of trousers.
The collection featured long tunics in double thread wool and cashmere, which were distorted or reattached with chains worn on loose denim Bermuda short. Of note, were the coats and capes with metallic studs on the collar, also with great effects in different materials on the back + The trainers and new to Owens collection, big soled boots in plastic.
