Lanvin's Spring/Summer 2021 collection is unveiled during the Shanghai Fashion Week

Shanghai Fashion Week in March of this year was seen as the emerging model of fashion shows turning virtual. It comes as no surprise that many were looking forward to the second fashion event held last week, as it returned as a physical event and featured around 90 brands.

One of the major brands at the fashion show is Lanvin, who unveiled their Spring/Summer 2021 collection staged in the city's 16th century Yu Garden, translated as "Garden of Happiness." The venue itself is symbolic according to Lanvin creative director, Bruno Sialelli.

"The rural discovered within the urban, a symbol of Chinese history in a metropolis known for its modernity. The exchange between the old and the new, between heritage and the contemporary, inspires the collection's approach, a reexamination of the legacy of the Maison, its physical archives and the house’s ideological meaning," he said.

The collection is a "translation of Lanvin for a new place a new time" yet their message of elegance, optimism and "joie de vivre" or enjoyment of life still remains.
