The Material Boy #279
Lanvin Ruched Pinstripe Jacket
Lanvin menswear are exquisite. The detailing and innovation behind the otherwise normal men's wardrobe pieces (shirts, pants and jackets) are what sets Lanvin designs apart from competitors Of course, with the creativity and thought being put into the design, it also adds to the huge price tag. But if you are a person who appreciates fine details, then Lanvin can fulfill the expectations for the price you pay. I am now waiting for the sale season to start before I can bear to invest in some much anticipated Lanvin pieces.
This Lanvin Ruched Pinstripe Jacket is one incredible piece I am eyeing on. At first glance, it looks just like any other pinstripe blazer, but inspect it closer, there is innovative ruching done on the front and back where the seams are. It creates interesting visual texture, subtle yet this detailing speaks volume. Truly elegance combined with brilliant design. Besides the special ruching effect (which gives a somewhat sleep-in, non-polished look), there is also a gross grain trim on the shoulders for added visual interest. So clever!
Browns Fashion has ran out of my size! Darn!...I wonder if Club 21 stocks this piece. But for those of you who wears size 48 and above...I highly recommend this if you stumble upon it during Brown's Fashion's sales!
