Yes, it’s really happening! Luxury French fashion house, Lanvin, has teamed up with H&M to create a capsule collection for the high street store.
Since becoming the label’s artistic director in 2001, Alber Elbaz has brought a new life to the house. His use of ribbons, pearls and embellishments combined with sharp tailoring and exquisitely cut garments have made him a favorite among fashion’s finest.
In a statement Elbaz said that “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.”
Elbaz was careful to point out that he did not want to create a stepsister mass-market collection for the brand however. His enthusiasm for the project has come from the idea of “H&M going luxury rather than Lanvin going public.”
So when can we get our hands on it then?!
The collection will arrive on our shores on November 23rd. Not before we get a taster of what’s to come via an online film preview of the collection that is to be aired on November 1st at hm.com.
That’s not all! There are rumors that Elbaz has teamed up with make-up artist Pat McGrath to create a limited edition lipstick that will also be sold at H&M. The look: smart over sexy.
Girls, get in line!
