Lanvin for H&M Collab is the Only Thing (Fashion) People Are Talking About

If you’ve already voted, and are over the political stories, we sure hope you like Lanvin, H&M or both. H&M’s collaboration with Lanvin, the oldest French fashion house in operation, seems to be the hottest buzz in the fashion community (including our coverage, here).

The new collection will be reviewed by American press sometime today, while the U.K. and Japan have already seen the stellar lineup.

While the pieces haven’t hit store shelves just yet, it is highly-anticipated. From the photos, lookbooks, videos and advertisements there is no doubt items will fly off shelves in a matter of seconds.

Cocktail and party dresses overwhelm the line. Sweetheart necklines, frills, belting, rouching, tiers, pleats, faux furs, exotic prints, bows, silks, metallics, buttons, florals and beads create a colorful, youthful feel, creating a strong, feminine silhouette.

One thing we love about Lanvin is the the femininity and elegance of their exquisitely-crafted apparel.

When asked about how the project came together Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz comments, “When H&M approached us to do this collaboration, they asked if I could actually translate the dream that we created at Lanvin to a bigger audience. It wasn’t a project to about a dress for less. I think I loved the idea that H&M was going luxury rather than Lanvin is going public. I thought it was a smart concept, so I said I do.” {You Tube}

Alber Elbaz has definitely not disappointed. The stylish and colorful pieces are easily mixed and matched and transition from day to night effortlessly. The YouTube video for the Fall Winter 2010/2011 collection is stunning and makes you want to run out on November 20th and buy everything! It all looks so good we can’t wait to get our hands on a few of things. The leopard print heels and fur-trimmed vests are the perfect combo for a night out this season and the short and frilly cocktail numbers are perfectly festive for the holidays.
