Lanvin x H&M Here For a Good Time, Not a Long Time
Following in the footsteps of such designers as Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, and Comme des Garcons, Lanvin’s H&M collection went on sale Saturday across the country after months and months of public anticipation. New York Magazine reports that when Lanvin’s artistic director, Alber Elbaz, pulled up to the Fifth Avenue H&M, the line of shoppers had reached 300 in the hours before the store opened, with similar reports across the world. As one of the oldest fashion houses in France, Lanvin’s collection gained much attention, with dresses ranging from $149 to $249, and an extensive array of accessories such as shoes, sunglasses, and jewelry.
If you missed the collection in stores (it reportedly sold out within an hour at most locations), many of the items are popping up on eBay with substantial mark-ups. And if you’re so inclined, start planning now for the release of the next rumored H&M collaboration: Bottega Veneta.
