The Lanvin Menswear Spring/Summer 2009 ad campaign has an artistic vibe that is very appealing to me.

Shot by famed photographer Craig McDean, the ads look like portrait paintings that just came to life.

The campaign features models Jono Namara, Gavin Jones and Fabian R.

The Lanvin Womenswear campaign, on the other hand, went for a self-loving theme.

Implications - Menswear is more expressive than ever before, with today's heterosexual male realizing that individualism expressed through fashion is not a movement reserved for the effeminate. Thus, those in the menswear industry are called to create much more abstract, creative menswear pieces such as those seen in the Lanvin Menswear SS 200 line.
