Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz Gets H&M Collection Just Right

The next few weeks are bound to be long ones for die-hard fashionistas: First images from Lanvin’s line for H&M have hit the web, but the much-ballyhooed collaboration doesn’t go on sale until November 23rd. Four styles have been making the rounds: an asymmetrical cocktail dress, a tuxedo jacket, a trench, and a sleeveless dress covered in fabric folds. Each recalls recent Alber Elbaz designs as much as timeless Parisian staples. For better or worse (depending on whether you’re H&M or an eager shopper), the clothes are practically guaranteed to send lines spiraling out of control come November. Not since Karl Lagerfeld’s handiwork for the Swedish retailer has H&M hit the mark so dead center.

ASOS and Urban Outfitters are also teaming up this season. Racked points to UO’s PJ by Peter Jensen, a line from the heralded London-via-Denmark designer, which hits stores in December. “The line will be just a quirky and whimsical as Jensen’s collection main line—PJ will feature animal knit motifs and brightly-colored gingham pieces,” says Racked.

Over at London native ASOS’s HQ, a slew of guys-only collabs are being unveiled. In what the retailer has dubbed its bi-annual ‘Best of Britain‘ collection, ASOS has enlisted some of the UK’s best and brightest young talents to collaborate on signature pieces, like two standout shoes: a pair of white chukkas from designer Tim Soar and a Country Boot from Tavistock. This season, two is better than one.
