When I read that Lanvin is to be the new “suits to the boots” of the Arsenal football team, my curiosity was piqued. Not so much that one of the world’s best football teams would chose the impeccable cut and slightly left-field design house – these fit fanatics are, after all, notorious shoppers. No, commercial sense aside, I was intrigued by the thought the ebullient Alber Elbaz would look beyond the beauty and glamour of womenswear to clad a side of rough-and-tumble ball-kickers. But then the designer is known for his wit and humour, and perhaps, for him, this is merely a different sort of playing field.
