H&M collaboration – Lanvin!

There have been several whisperings about who the next H&M collaboration will be with. Lots of names have been thrown around, from Thomas Maier of Bottega Veneta and Carolina Hererra to Vivienne Westwood and Tom Ford. But the rumour-mill can stop now, it’s just been announced that it is…LANVIN!! Be still my beating heart! I think it may just be the perfect partnership. I’ve never actually been caught up in the frenzy of H&M collaborations, though I did really like the recent Sonia Rykiel collection. But I would actually join a queue and (im)patiently wait in line to get my hands on a H&M x Lanvin piece. 
I love the work of Alber Elbaz at Lanvin, it’s super-luxe, utterly gorgeous and totally unattainable. Even the Lanvin x Acne collaboration had a shockingly high price point. So of course I would love the chance to get my hands on some Lanvin…at H&M prices. There is one niggling doubt in the back of my mind though – quality. With H&M, quality can be a bit hit and miss but at those prices it’s forgiveable. But when they collaborate with the likes of Viktor & Rolf, Comme des Garcon and Karl Lagerfeld, you feel a bit cheated at the poor quality. I was mildly curious about the Jimmy Choo collaboration and was very disappointed. 

The collection is previewing on 2nd November and is out on 23rd November. Here’s one of the viral videos H&M released, this one indicating that it was Lanvin:
