Just in time for the holidays, Lanvin's collection will contain looks for both women and men, and will include clothing and accessories.
Four of the looks in the women’s collection, seen in the first leaked image of the collaboration, are actually recreations of past designs from the 2009 Pre-Fall, Spring 2009, and Fall 2008 collections.
News that Lanvin would be joining forces with H&M came as a shock to many, as Alber Elbaz, artistic director of Lanvin, repeatedly shot down the idea of Lanvin doing a secondary line. In H&M’s press release, it was clear that Elbaz had a change of heart in the last few months:
Elbaz said: “H&M approached us to collaborate, and see if we could translate the dream we created at Lanvin to a wider audience, not just a dress for less. I have said in the past that I would never do a mass-market collection, but what intrigued me was the idea of H&M going luxury rather than Lanvin going public. This has been an exceptional exercise, where two companies at opposite poles can work together because we share the same philosophy of bringing joy and beauty to men and women around the world.”
Lanvin is currently France’s oldest design house, and designs women’s, as well as menswear. Their attention to detail, cut, and tailoring makes their classic, feminine clothing a hit with women all over the world, including celebrities such as Blake Lively, Victoria Beckham, Rihanna, and even our fabulous First Lady, Michelle Obama.
H&M will debut the collection in a mini film on their website November 4th, and the collection will be available for purchase in select stores worldwide November 23rd.
