“I Want Lanvin, Not Flowers” = My New Motto

November 2, 2010

It’s here.

Election day? No, move over, you silly institution.

I’m talking about the first full preview of the Lanvin collection for H&M! The all-inclusive collection, ranging from dresses to necklaces, is pitch-perfect. While many designer collaborations tend to lose a bit of their iconic design in their attempt to pander to Middle America, I could still see Lanvin in every piece of this collection. Everything had just the right touch of high fashion while still being wearable for the average H&M customer. So, I am now officially counting down the days until November 23rd when it’s released in stores. But, before I share my top picks, take a look at the video, because it’s delightfully strange.

Some of the more standout pieces were the coats:

While I'm usually not one for animal prints, I think I need this.

I love the tailoring here, and those buttons are amazing. I feel like this could've gone down the runway.

I also enjoyed that he included accessories as well.

So chic.

I love the statement necklace.

Then, of course, there were the dresses … so many beautiful dresses.

How much fun is this? I'd twirl the skirt all day long. I just wish it was actually strapless instead of having that weird nude tank top part.

This is such a perfect translation of Lanvin's aesthetic for the mass market. Love it.

But the piece I can’t wait to get my hands on most?

This dress. It's stunning, and definitely the most wearable while still screaming high fashion and Lanvin.
