DC Comics x Lanvin
Lanvin invites iconic DC Characters Batman and Catwoman to take over Fashion House for Summer 2022 Season. Fascinated by the comics and their emblematic characters from a young age, Bruno Sialelli has invited DC’s Batman and Catwoman to playfully take over the fashion house’s refined world.
A large section of the collection is dedicated to these two super heroes. Their faces appear on the label’s signature asymmetric shirt, the metal mesh dresses and the reversible teddy jacket already adopted by Offset.
By making Maison Lanvin their home, Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC are soaking up the luxury and sophistication infinitely reinvented in the spirit of Jeanne Lanvin’s designs. Bruno Salielli is introducing these two American comic book legends to the precious refinement of the finest dyes and materials.
The brilliant colours of DC Comics – blue and purple - flourish freely without ever obliterating Lanvin’s delicate daisies. Shoulder lines are bolder and more comfortable, amplifying the cut of Bruno Salielli’s men’s and women’s clothes. This elegant ease combines precious fabrics like satin and fine wool with flowing shapes.
Accessories also take on saturated colours and Art Deco lines in a Gotham City style; the iconic Curbs sneakers are built like the inevitable Batmobile which also lends its flamboyant lines to a minaudière.The faces of Catwoman and Batman also appear on a few bags, jazzing up the graceful lines of the label’s leather goods.
The light tone of the world of DC Comics makes a perfectly successful foray into the traditions started by Jeanne Lanvin.
The collection will be available online and in stores from early March, just in time for the release of the highly anticipated film “The Batman”, releasing in March theaters in North America March 4, 2022 and internationally beginning 2 March 2022; it will be distributed worldwide
by Warner Bros. Pictures.
