Lanvin for H&M
I guess collaborations it's what's hot now...
Lately, simple mortals such as me, have had the pleasure of looking up close to the work of some of the greatest fashion designers in the world.. how?.. well, by the excellent job they've been doing by designing incredible affordable pieces in some of the most average stores nowadays.
Economy has not been as good as it used to for a lot of us, and neither for a lot of designers in the fashion world. We've seen huge fashion houses close their doors, reduce their collections or even stop designing couture... it's sad to see that money can easily shut down an artist's work.. but that's how it is now.
Luckily, someone had the amazing idea of asking high fashion designers to design a few luxury pieces at affordable prizes.. this won't only help their economy but also would help us, average people, to feel special about finally being able to wear an original valentino, rodarte, vera wang or even vivienne westwood.. well... this last one until she decides to join all the other designers that have done the miracle for us... vivienne.. please??
Anyway... Lanvin pieces for H&M are already sold out, Valentino for Gap is just about to come out and now, Target is also launching Alexander McQueen's line next spring... although I could only get my hands in a couple of photos, I'm looking forward to see what this collection will be all about. Meanwhile, stay tight.. I'll upload the entire collection as soon as it's available to see.
