Lanvin to create collection for H&M
Lanvin is one of the world's most exclusive fashion brands, with price tags to match, but now it is set to reach a much wider audience. The Parisian label will create a collection for the high street chain H&M which will go on sale on 23 November.
There will be a slightly shorter wait for the first glimpse of the clothes, however, which will be revealed in a short film on the H&M website on 2 November.
Although the novelty of the designer collaboration may have worn off since Karl Lagerfeld designed a range for H&M in 2004, the pairing is likely to see fashion fanatics queuing around the block. Lanvin is synonymous with incredibly refined and beautiful clothes rather than gimmickry or fleeting trends.
