Lanvin for H&M

I really can't wait to see the clothes for the designer collaboration between Alber Elbaz of Lanvin and Swedish mega store H&M coming to stores November 23.  Here's a preview on  All I can say is divine!  I want pretty much everything!  It looks like there are favorites from past collections featured which I predict will sell out like that (I'm snapping my fingers here). Their press release:


H&M is proud to announce that its next designer collaboration will be with Lanvin, one of the most influential brands of the 21st century. Designed by Lanvin’s artistic director Alber Elbaz, and menswear designer Lucas Ossendrijver, the collection will go on sale on November 23 in around 200 H&M stores worldwide. The collection of both womenswear and menswear will be revealed to the world on November 2, just three weeks before the clothes hit the store, making the launch of Lanvin for H&M among the most anticipated fashion events of the year. 

Some of the fabulous pieces from Fall 2010:

New Talent Anthony Vaccarello

Anthony Vaccarello is yet another talent that has come out of the fashion stew pot that is Belgium.  After a short stint at Fendi where no doubt he had training under the great Karl Lagerfeld, he started his own line which shows in Paris.  

His structural futuristic goth pieces are sold at Brown's London, Kirna Zabete in NY and Colette, Paris.

Note to self:  if you can get Lou Doillon to model for you, it bodes well for your future success.
