Distinguished and illustrious Parisian fashion house Lanvin - makers of Michelle Obama's controversial sneakers - is doing a line w/ H&M.
Confirmed via WWD and NY Times the statement confirms the partnership but also leaves me with a tone of questions. - “I have said in the past that I would never do a mass-market collection, but what intrigued me was the idea of H & M going luxury rather than Lanvin going public.” - Alber Elbaz Lanvin's creative director.
I'm thinking the price point will be a bit higher than past guest designers, Stella McCartney, Karl Lagerfeld, Jimmy Choo.
First look is scheduled for 11/2/10 and the collection will be in 200 stores 11/23/10.
I may be sleeping outside the night before, just maybe. The last time, with Jimmy Choo, it was a mad house! I may need some back-up ladies.
