I was so glad a few days ago to see finally the items of the Lanvin for H&M collection since Lanvin is one of my favorite fashion brands, and I had lots of anticipation for the result of this collaboration. Of course, I had my thoughts concerning the final quality of the items, and I was sure it wouldn't be as good as the original. Okay, so when the items I saw the video with the presentation-ad (the one I posted some days back) I was super thrilled, I thought it would be huge, it would be nothing like H&M's previous collaborations, and that I should start saving money!
But when I actually took a deeper look at the items, I must say they were not exactly what I expected. Some pieces look really good, still not Lanvin-like but decent, like the one shouldered belted dresses. But some others were a huge let down. I could tell that the collection rather seems more like H&M for Lanvin than Lanvin for H&M. And it's not just the type or the quality of the material. I wasn't expecting to get taffeta and chiffon with 150$. But at least I was expecting a better shape, an illusion of high fashion. The kind of illusion that I get from Zara. I swear if Lanvin would collaborate with Zara they would make miracles! I am just surprised with how Alber compromised with such cheap looking jewelry.
However, I don't like to brag all the time, there were some bright exceptions, like the black lacy ruffled skirt, the pink floral ruffled dress(even though if you ask me, it looks more like spring/summer couture than fall/winter but anyway), the bag and maybe the gloves.
I am interested in hearing your opinions as well!!
