Thank goodness Alber Elbaz opens his mail. If he didn't, Lucas Ossendrijver might never have joined Lanvin to become one of the fashion industry’s most celebrated men’s wear designers.
“I heard from a friend Lanvin was thinking of relaunching its men’s wear, and I always had respected Alber’s work,” recalls Ossendrijver, 39. “So I just wrote him a letter and said that I liked his work and that I would love to meet him and show him mine. A week later I had an appointment.”
