Lucky number 10

To mark a decade of his time as style director of menswear at Lanvin, designer Lucas Ossendrijver has produced a special collection, called 10 Years, featuring three pairs of sneakers, a rucksack, a sweater, and a t-shirt all in black and white. Obviously, the number 10 covers the pieces of this collection like a lucky charm but, Ossendrijver says it’s also a symbol of creativity in movement. Now available. Call 04-3308008.
