H&M and Lanvin Collaborate for New Collection

Submitted by on Wednesday, 13 October 2010 | One Comment

The H&M collaborations have long been one of the highlights of any season for fashion followers, and this time round is no exception. The high street store has coupled with ‘one of the most influential brands of the 21st century’, Lanvin for their latest collection.

The range, which includes both men and womenswear, will be revealed to the public on the 2nd of November but won’t be available in stores for a further three weeks after that.

The clothes have been designed by a genius collaboration of Lanvin’s art director Alber Elbaz and menswear designer Lucas Ossendrijver. The collection has come as somewhat of a surprise to some of the more fashion-obsessed lovers after a few years ago Elbaz announced he would never create a mass-market range; ‘What intigued 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.’

With H&M’s collaborations of the past boasting names such as Karl Lagerfeld and Stella McCartney, is it any wonder that a brand like Lanvin would soon follow suit?

Alber Elbaz has been the brains behind some of the biggest trends created via Lanvin including metallic embellishment, ribbons, bows and pearls, so we have huge hopes for this new collection. And if the collection of recent years from H&M are anything to go by, we won’t be disappointed!
