Lanvin for H&M
High fashion for everyone!
Could you ever imagine entering in a fancy high fashion boutique to buy a coktail dress for 149 US dollars?
If it sounds strange to you, then you are not definitely one of the thousands of shoppers who camped yesterday (November 23rd, 2010) outside of one of the 200 H&M stores that host the Lanvin Collection.
The head designer of the French House of Lanvin, Alber Elbaz has agreed in September 2010 to create a collection of women, menswear, shoes, accessories and make up for H&M. As a result thousands of fashionistas from all over the world will have access to high fashion garments which prices range from $9.99 (lipstick) to $349 (leather coat).
"H&M approached us to collaborate, and translate the dream we have created in Lavin for a bigger audience.", Alber Elbaz said. "It wasn't a project about a dress for less" he added.

H&M and High Fashion Designer Collaborations
In November 2004 H&M stores all over the world were crowded with fashionistas of all ages and income. They were not there for their regular H&M shopping, but to purchase a piece of the collection Karl Lagerfeld has created exclusively for H&M. It is not a surprise that the pieces of the Largerfeld collection were sold out in just a few hours.
H&M made high fashion accessible to everyone. Since then many designers have collaborated with H&M: Stella McCartney, Victor & Rolf, Roberto Cavalli, Comme de Garcons, Matthew Williamson, Sonia Rykiel and shoe designer Jimmy Choo.
Moreover Madonna and Kylie Minogue have released their clothe collection in H&M stores. Currently at 200 H&M stores worldwide you will find the collection of the french Lanvin.
