Today I attended the Lanvin for H&M press day in London.
The collection goes on sale in 3 weeks time, which is just enough time to save for the most anticipated fashion event of the year.
Alber Elbaz said in his interview that, “This is not about a dress for less, it’s more about bringing Lanvin to a wider audience.”
This was evident as the fabrics have the same high quality as the pieces in Lanvin boutiques.
Whilst mentally putting together my wish list, I noticed that many pieces looked familiar.
Lanvin lovers will see hints of past Lanvin’s Fall 2008, Resort 2009, Spring 2009 and Resort 2010 collections.
The H&M showroom presented strapless, asymmetrical, colourful, tulle, silk, puffy sleeved, one-sleeved dresses alongside graphic t-shirts, faux fur coats, jackets and vests, skirts, trench coats and blazers.
Accessories included canvas graphic bags, shoes with embellished heels and ribbon details, leopard print and floral clutches accented with red pom poms, belts, necklaces, earrings, leather gloves, tights, lipstick and sunglasses.
The Lanvin for H&M collection goes on sale November 23, and as much as I want to keep this so myself to ensure I get my favourite pieces, the collection will also be available to purchase online at www.hm.com at 7am GMT.
