Lanvin Shoe Thread

Recommended Posts

oh yeah! i like this coat, its exactly what you said mixture of dressy and casual its a staple piece. this coat will probably have longer staying power than most peoples coat that has way too much on it. the coat is classy, sleek and sense of casual embodies lanvin. one member of the jury says robokop dat.

when i tried it on, i didn't get the women's wear feel at all. i thought it had a pretty good mixture of dressy and casual; a piece that i could wear to work and casually. i guess, what do you find hard to wear about it? btw, i'm still deliberating on this, the jury is out...

Common Projects, Raf Simons mainline, and Lanvin are all made in the same factory in Italy. I'm trying to search and find out which one...

And no, they don't fit the same. The lasts are a tad bit different on the common projects, plus the common projects seem to have a bit more 'give' while the Lanvins are a bit stiffer (at least true for the high top Lanvins).

Joey- I personally love the coat, one of my favorites of the season. I also like the short version too.

Not sure if you would like it, but Black Fleece has a nice casual coat that's on sale right now for $1750 or something...it's excellent. Saw it yesterday and the quality is impeccable. It's the very first look that comes up when looking through the blackfleece site.

Fuuma's right, coat def has a somewhat fem look about it due to the shape. I do like the sheen from the fabric though.

i agree. if you see it in person it's different. i couldn't get the fem feel whatsoever.

cuddly, did the sf barneys carry this coat? do you know if they still have it?

In that case then I say kop, can you integrate navy with the rest or does it come in black also? Personally I'm a fan of navy.

yeah they did i think one navy and black,but i think they were kopped way before the sale which was pretty ballsy. i went back during the sale and it wasnt there anymore.

It is somewhat "A" shaped, especially worn open, + I see it as more "louche" luxury (like a velvet jacket) than anything else and that's not that easy to integrate. If you like it by all means cop, I mean I like it too, just not sure if its a good buy. The "feminine" shape is a direct influence on many of this season's lanvin coats by the way so it is normal and not a design fuckup.

always like your input fuuma. jury's still out.

Did you look at Yohji's coats this season? (I haven't) but the pics looked like the stuff was killing it.

i did see some of the yohji coats at A, but i haven't tried them on though. they are indeed awesome. i should probably stop by and give them try.

When I first saw the Lanvin fall winter stuff that coat was the one thing I really liked. I think you should get it. It is a fashionable yet classic looking coat. If you don't like it I would take it!:) How much is it?

i'll let you know if i decide to pass. the coat is very expensive. even at 50% off it'll run you $1,500 + tax.
