Hear it From Alber Elbaz – Lanvin for H&M Collaboration

Hear it From Alber Elbaz – Lanvin for H&M Collaboration

This is truly a dream come true. The Lanvin x H&M collaboration is going to be released in 200 stores worldwide on November 23, 2010. 

“H&M approached us to collaborate, and see if we could translate the dream we created at Lanvin to a wider audience, not just a dress for less. I have said in the past that I would never do a mass-market collection, but what intrigued me was the idea of H&M going luxury rather than Lanvin going public. This has been an exceptional exercise, where two companies at opposite poles can work together because we share the same philosophy of bringing joy and beauty to men and women around the world.”
- Alber Elbaz, artistic director of Lanvin.

I can’t wait to see the result of this collaboration. OMG the men’s shoes. SHOES. SHOES!!!!

Amazing!!!

H&M + Lanvin Collaboration Teaser Videos

Are you ready for this? Swedish fast fashion giant H&M’s collaborates with Lanvin! From today’s Women’s Wear Daily:

According to market sources, the Swedish fast-fashion giant will unveil a project with Lanvin and its creative director, Alber Elbaz, within the next week.

On Tuesday, H&M launched a viral video campaign on its Web site and YouTube to build curiosity about its annual holiday designer tie-up. A series of black-and-white videos features stereotypical fashion designer types: a man in a skinny dark suit; a woman in an outlandish blouse and chunky jewelry.

I’m sure you’ve seen all the ‘Designer Collaboration’ videos H&M released earlier this week.

Lunch With Linus Gustin [i heart male models]

Lunch With Linus Gustin

Back in Paris, me and my pals Sonny and Isaac thought it was a good idea to have (very) late lunch before the spectacular Damir Doma show. A few minutes after my order arrived, male model Linus Gustin rolled up  beside me. He was on his way to the show venue but he was starving. He asked us how long it took for our food to arrive and I told him it wasn’t very long so he joined our table. I thought I was gonna die — hello, how often do you have lunch with male models? I’m talking about real, working models not “models“. Anyway, I found out he’s Swedish. Y’all know how I go weak in the knees when it comes to Swedish guys. There I was, in Paris, having a beautiful meal with friends, enjoying a nice glass of rose and I’ve got some eye candy beside me. It was icing on the cake!

For the love of shiny things

For the love of shiny things

Whenever you see something that you really like, don't you just love imagining yourself in it and say 'wow. i want that. that is so me" in your head?

Here's one of my favourite looks from the spring/summer 2010 Lanvin show in Paris this October.

And here's me in my sequined Veejay Floresca (a Filipino designer;  I bought the fabric myself at the fabric store here and asked him to make this for me) number being photographed by NY Times' Bill Cunningham at the Marc Jacobs show in NYC in September.

Yes, that's the adorable Tavi!

If you excuse me I'm gonna weep to baby Jesus now. I'd kill to wear that Lanvin…

Lanvin Postage Stamps

Lanvin Postage Stamps

Here's another reason why the French should ditch email and start sending things via the mail: Lanvin postage stamps.

Lanvin postage stamps La Poste 2010

Alber Elbaz designed these stunning postage stamps for the French
postal system, La Poste, as part of Lanvin's 120th anniversary. They'll
be available next year.

I'm sure y'all know how precious Lanvin is and now everyone can finally get a piece of the action.

Now… where can I find a hot French man who will serenade me, write sweet nothings on fine paper and send love letters in the mail with these stamps?

My Baby Found Its Way Home

My Baby Found Its Way Home

The Lanvin shoes I ordered online from Luisa Via Roma finally arrived earlier this week with no delays/taxes/etc. Strange eh? I’m starting to think Filipino
customs pick their prey randomly from a hat. In any case, I’m so happy! I love these blue boxes of love.

Good thing I bought this a few weeks ago when the euro-to-dollar (€322 = US$439 including shipping)
exchange rate was good. Have you been keeping track of the exchange
rates lately? It’s insane!!!! No wonder Barney’s or Aloharag charge around $650 for the same pair. Yikes.

Sorry to see you go…

19/05/2009, Lanvin, Shoes, Shopping

Sorry to see you go…

After two weeks of painfully dealing (or should I say ‘negotiating’) with the worst customs in the whole world (they refuse to budge and insisted on charging an arm and a leg in duties and taxes… for a pair of shoes!!), the Lanvin sneakers I bought finally arrived. 

Lanvin men's Sneakers

But alas, they are the wrong size.

What a beautiful pair of sneakers… I saw the knock-off version at Zara a few weeks ago and it pales in comparison to the real deal.  Now I’m gonna have to send them back and wait for another pair to be sent to me. I’m soo sad. I honestly feel like I’m parting away with a child!

It’s alright. At least it gives me time to find black grosgrain ribbon to use as shoelaces.
