I get the feeling that Lanvin is one of the new "it" labels for men. There seems to be quite a buzz surrounding the brand. I know The Sartorialist is a big fan. There is a certain soft luxuriousness to their clothing. I picked up a pair of pants in Barney's in New York this season, but you can also get their their stuff at Holts.
The head designer, Alber Elbaz, looks like a cartoon character--I just can't figure out which one.
