Amidst the forthcoming snow, student protests and spending cuts Lanvin artistic director Alber Elbaz has brought us all a little bit of happiness in the shape of a high fashion line at a high street price tag. Every guy, gal and grandmother hot footed to H&M flagship stores nationwide hot on the heels of this rare fashion collaboration. Elbaz spoke of the collection,
" I was inspired by women I know and want to know... the collection has happy colours, prints and patterns... it is a happy collection for happy people!"
Midday yesterday only a solitary cap was left to purchase. A fitting tribute to the brand which once originated from Jeanne Lanvin's milliners boutique. Hats off to Elbaz and his affordable high street dream.
