Karl Lagerfeld, check! Stella McCartney, check! Sonia Rykiel, check! Jimmy Choo, check . . . LANVIN, HERE WE GO!
Yesterday, Melissa and I headed to the Penthouse at the Cooper Square Hotel in downtown New York to the press preview of the Lanvin for H&M collection.
As we came out of the elevator, we felt as if we’d died and gone to heaven—killer views of Manhattan, the sun was setting, there was champagne and platters of hors d’oeuvres. And the Lanvin for H&M collection front and center. LANVIN FOR H&M! We were giddy, more excited than a 10-year-old with a new puppy. The prices, the design, everything! The H&M staffers were decked in the collection, and they looked glamorous. Standouts included a one-sleeve dark purple dress with a voluminous pouf at the shoulder and thick black belt, a black cocktail dress covered with fabric bows, faux-fur coats and vests, tuxedo blazers, ruffled floral dresses, decadent-looking jewelry, and plenty of pointy shoes. The menswear collection is also a winner, so for the men in your life, don’t be selfish; they also deserve Lanvin for H&M.
We can’t wait for the line to hit H&M on November 20. We’ve already got the date in our Blackberries, and we’ll camp outside the entrance overnight if we have to! Melissa plans to scoop up the entire collection, because she’s already chosen a few favorites. I have my eye on the pointy leopard-print stilettos and a faux-fur coat that I am sure I will sleep in. —Daniela Apeloig
