When a luxury label goes mass market, female hysteria ensues. It was genuinely difficult to divert my attention elsewhere when I see rants and raves, anticipation and excitement in every possible direction of another H&M collaboration that seems to stir the hearts of female bloggers worldwide. Sneak peek here, leaked shots there, and finally, the LANVIN x H&M collection video is here for us to command and conquer!
One shoulder everything, satin and silk , florals and ruffles, tutus and trenches, ribbon heels, pearly necklaces, clutches, pouches and various Alber Elbaz scribbles will infiltrate the streets. I do not deny, the collection is wonderful, so wonderful that many will buy or die trying.
Just a little reminder of all things wallet friendly, notice the irony of the video, yes, Alber wants to highlight the consequence of reaching-out to the general public. Getting your hands on a piece of this means wearing the same sh*t as everyone else, "Oh, nice dress!".
Will I be buying? Or more importantly, will YOU be buying and risk wardrobe doubles and b*tche stares in the months to come?
