Travels, adventures… the Lanvin man hurries towards his destiny as if he were on the
run, with a backpack, a giant orange Doctor Bag or numerous flock accessories, the real
headliners of this collection, in hand.
Flocking, the textile screen printing technique popular in the 1980s, has made a big comeback
at Lanvin using a fresh new medium for summer 2014: leather.
Like a velvety print on precious leather, hand-strap cases and zipped pouches are crafted from
green or sky blue viscose. The large size is adorned with a strap in double green foal leather
into which he slips his hand for a laid-back approach. Glasses cases in grey pearl grained
calfskin and flocked with a grey-green technical fabric acts as a mini pouch for the man who
likes to travel light. The dandiest will opt for the backpack version in black nubuck flocked
with electric blue viscose. The chic school-boy look is highlighted by a pair of flocked,
buckled loafers with a studded finish or a pair of double-strapped sandals in the same tones.
I like the colors of the bags, men can match them with their outfits easily, and they come in different sizes, depending on the needs. If you’re going to the gym, you can have the backpack, if you’re travelling and need a small bag to take all your shaving products, you can choose one of the small ones that can attach to your hand.
What about you men? Do you like carrying bags? Which do you think is more practical for you?
