Lanvin Loves H&M!

Finally, the much talked about lanvin collection was unveiled this morning online and i rushed to take a look at the video after a massive reminder on my facebook page by a friend.
It was all about colourful one sholdered dresses, floral pieces and layered dresses for women and i was very impressed by that.
Mens wear seemed to be classics with a twist. with bow ties and suits, Alber Elbaz has really put his stamp on this.

From the video, my favourite so far are:

A message from Fikki:

Out of pure excitement for this collection, I decided to cut my day in hospital in half so that I could finally have a look at this collection. I originally planned to spend at least an hour deciding what to buy from this collection but after looking at the prices, this hour was cut to 1 minute.

£124 for a dress! I couldn't believe my eyes! I have to say that I wouldn't be so disappointed about the prices if the quality was to match. I cannot deny that I am a fan of the design of many of the items (in particular the purple asymmetric dress and the sheer jacket) but I would expect a higher quality of fabric at finishing at those costs especially when the product has a major fashion house attached to it.

I suppose the internet may be a bit deceiving but from looking at a few close-up shots of certain items, I might as well go on a shopping haul in Primark and get 10 dresses of what looks to me as equal quality. I hope that when I finally head to H&M in two weeks what I feel and try on meets up to the high expectations I originally had for this collection.

So my verdict so far is undecided as to whether I love Lavin loves H&M and I hope November 23rd will help me come to a conclusion.

And my verdict on the accessories is that they are definitely not to my aesthetic.

  8. sorry for spamming you with my comments, but H&M just opened where i live and i went and got some Lanvin stuff. check it out in my latest post.

    but i do agree--it was a bit pricey for being a collaboration with H&M.
