So, yesterday I had the opportunity to check out the Lanvin <3 H&M collection. Honestly, we’ve all seen these collabs before and you can never be too sure if it’s going to be a success. Oftentimes a designer’s DNA is restricted when working with any mass retailer and you don’t get a true representation. I don’t think anybody could say that about Lanvin’s work with H&M. It’s everything you’d expect from Alber Elbaz, pushing silhouettes and playful use of ruffles all while maintaining that “if you fuck with me, i will kill you with my eyes look,” which is my favorite. There’s really no denying it’s Lanvin and courtesy of the prices, there’s no denying it’s H&M. Smashingly awesome. I wouldn’t be surprised if you see a few of these pieces pop up on Textbook soon either.
The collab will be available in about 200 stores nation-wide on November 20 and no doubt they’ll be lines out the door.
don’t forget, jan 31 is the last day to submit for the spider bangle giveaway.
giveaway #2 has arrived. before you judge the bangle, you must know that i believe spider jewelry is completely underappreciated. it can really punch you up a few notches and give you some street cred. just check this one out from the lovely glamourai. granted, hers is a little more serious than this kate spade new york bangle but you get the idea. rest assured it has never been worn and is in tip top condition.
to enter for a chance to win either re-blog this post or e-mail me (link in header). in the re-blog or e-mail tell me who in history, literature or a song you would see wearing this and some reasons why you think so. get creative, get original. i’ll stop taking entries on january 31, 2010. feels weird to write 2010.
just a friendly reminder to those hopeful people out there, this giveaway ends in three days. to enter for a chance to win, please see the link below. best of luck, you’re all special in your own way.
