Feeling the Lanvin for H&M Love

Lanvin makes our heart beat a little bit faster and we usually covet almost every item in the iconic house's collection. But our editorial salaries preclude us from stocking up on Alber Elbaz's stunning designs. Thankfully H&M is bringing the Lanvin aesthetic to the masses. Last night we had the opportunity to preview the Lanvin for H&M collection and our jaws dropped at the sight of short flirty frocks, humorous embellished tees, elegant coats, and fabulous feminine accessories. Even the lipstick had us smiling! Plus the packaging is sure to become a collectible in it's own right; dresses will come protected in an illustrated garment bag, while accessories can be stored in their own sturdy boxes. Priced from $9.95 for a pair of tights to $349 for an evening coat with dresses, skirts, tees and shoes falling somewhere in between, there is a wide range of offerings. Though the collection won't hit stores until November 23rd, we suggest you start saving your pennies now. This is one collaboration you definitely don't want to miss. ~Nola Weinstein
