Ossendrijver eyes the street for inspiration, studying stylish Frenchmen and how they assemble their outfits, and builds upon that foundation with collections that meld athleticism with classicism: Double-breasted blazers are paired with silk-chiffon track pants; lightweight suits decked with grosgrain pipings feature raw-cut, frayed edges; and his sporty sneakers have proven to be a coveted commodity, seen on everyone from David Beckham to Usher. And while the clothing and accessories are steeped in luxe details, their swagger is grounded in a subtlety that sidesteps the trademark showboating preferred by other labels. Perhaps Kanye West put it best when in his song “Illest Motherfucker Alive” he name-dropped a “Lanvin thousand-dollar tee with no logos.”
