Fashion house LANVIN presented the Spring Summer 2023 collection with Character Studies: Modern Heroes campaign captured by fashion photographer Steven Meisel. The stars of the campaign are models Alberth Johnson, Gendai Funato, Quintin Van Konkelenberg, Job and Raquel Zimmermann. Each portrait presents a bold character study in quiet elegance and modern masculinity. From its inception, Character Studies was meant to illustrate le chic ultime, a guiding phrase and concept coined by the house’s founder that translates to the ultimate chic. This second chapter focuses on the newly imagined Lanvin man, expressing his innate qualities alongside the house’s core values of independence, sensuality, curiosity, and discretion. The pioneering spirit of Jeanne Lanvin, one of the first designers to contextualize men’s and women’s fashion in a single universe, is reprised in the house today and emphasized in the unifying vision of the campaign. For the campaign designer Bruno Sialeli teamed up with stylist Ludivine Poiblanc, art directors Mathias Augustyniak and Michael Amzalag, hair stylist Guido Palau, makeup artist Pat McGrath and casting director Piergiorgio Del Moro.
