Close up: LANVIN FW17 by Bouchra Jarrar

Bouchra Jarrar has said her mission at Lanvin is to describe the “tenderness and force” of women.
Masculine-feminine is more or less the distillation of what French fashion has stood for since Saint Laurent himself—but what of feminine-feminine?

Perhaps responding to Lanvin’s growing success in the mileu of red carpet dressing, Jarrar went to the girliest of girly tropes: the pink ballerina dress.
