Creative director Lucas Ossendrijver put forth a remarkable amount of contrast for his spring 2019 collection at Lanvin.

A parade of purples, blacks, and grays served as a delightful divergence from the avant-garde silhouettes they colored. Deconstructed linen smocks and gloriously oversized slacks brought another element of calm to the equation, leveling out the whimsy evoked by elastic-fastened dad sneakers and gigantic knapsacks emblazoned with futuristic renditions of the Lanvin logo. The show's standout pieces included a polished black trench coat splotched with cherry red; after seeing similar offerings at Alexander McQueen, we feel safe calling the colorful leather jacket the menswear trend of the season.

Big ups to Ossendrijver, who sent no dull looks down the runway. The coalescence of rugged terrain gear, sharp suiting, and breezy summer shapes was enough to keep any men's fashion enthusiast on their toes.
