First revealed at Paris Fashion Week in September 2020, the Lanvin Curb sneaker has gained somewhat a cult following. With clear 00’s references, the chunky style encaptures the feeling of freedom and has set a precedent in men’s footwear.
Introducing Lanvin’s Curb Sneaker to Coggles, here’s why this sneaker has become such a benchmark…
During the 90s Creative Director, Bruno Sialelli grew up between the South Of France and Morocco. Here, he started experimenting with clothes and styling, later acting as the main inspiration for his AW20 collection.
In recent years, many fashion brands have bridged the gap between the fashion and sports world. In this collection, Sialelli focuses on skateboarders and what they wear. With similarities to the Osiris D3, it has been described as a high-end reinterpretation of the 00’s skate trainer. In an interview Sialelli commented that he envisioned ‘free-wheeling dudes with their sun-scorched hair, sharks teeth around their necks, hanging out on beaches around the world. Those sneakers were, to me, the most immediate yet relevant pieces to represent and understand those characters, in the right way.”
