Lucas Ossendrijver

Lucas Ossendrijver is a pragmatic aesthete, a builder-dreamer, masterfully tracing his lines for style and life, beginning with reality and constantly moving forward.

Ossendrijver's past masters include Jil Sander, Helmut Lang and Rei Kawakubo, adding to the apparent austerity of the cut a certain sensuality with leather touches and details in the craftsmanship that never betray a legacy; they subtly beautify it. From Kenzo and Kostas Murkudis to Dior Homme where he worked for three and a half years under Hedi Slimane, Lucas Ossendrijver passed through very different worlds before arriving at Lanvin in 2005 where he spent 15 years as Creative Director of Menswear.  His eagerly awaited capsule collection for Theory (menswear and womenswear) will launch in Spring 2022.  

From Robert Mapplethorpe to Alexandra Bircken, the former Lanvin menswear designer picks his favourite artworks on Frieze Viewing Room
