So the much-anticipated Lanvin for H&M pieces have now become available today at select stores. I haven’t seen the collection closely and see if the price justifies the quality, but I can see why many people are excited about this.
Even if the price seems higher than typical H&M pieces (Lanvin for H&M dresses starts from $149 and up), this collection has a lot to offer. The one-shoulder yellow dress ($199) is cool by default since I love yellow, but the black ruffle dress ($149), beige mini skirt with blooming detail ($59.95) and white T-shirt decorated with a drawing of a pair of sexy legs in fishnets, heels, and black ribbons ($49.95) are also my favorites.
All in all, I’m very interested in seeing how fast this collection will run out. The collection may be very exciting, but the higher price points may be a turn-off for some H&M fans. On the other hand, fashionistas who adore Lanvin may be hyper-excited and flood the stores. Or e-Bay sellers who buy them and then sell them twice as much or more on e-Bay (remember Stella McCartney for H&M?) Yeah.
On a rather separate note, I had a chance to see H&M Holiday 2010 Collection. Not bad, actually…considering I don’t usually like Holiday collection.
I think the beaded blazer ($19.95), black catwoman-like pants ($19.95), and black long vest ($ 24.95) are amazing.
So whether you dig Lanvin for H&M or not, there’s always plenty of reasons to go to H&M. Be careful on Black Friday :)
