Someone made the point that there has been a lot of macho imagery on catwalks this season—the military influence being a case in point—but at Lanvin, I think the “toughness” only highlighted the vulnerability of the boys. (I’ll go on calling them that however much Alber and Lucas insist they’re growing into men.) This simply isn’t a man’s world anymore. And if that isn’t an emotional sticking point for the average male, I don’t know what is.
