^^Yes and Alber saying that it's H&m going luxury and not Lanvin going public gives me the impression that the pieces are certainly not going to be cheap!

omg nobody knows how excited i am for this collaboration but honestly i'm worried about the prices The Jimmy Choo collaboration was seriously not cheap by any means and i only bought the blue suede dress and i had a rough time trying to rationalize paying for it but i loved it and took the bullet. i've worn that dress so many times earlier this year before it started getting warm here and honestly if the items are trend-less and somewhat timeless i'm seriously willing to drop some $$ but if it's all trendy pieces that cost upwards $200+ i'm going to pass. Eitherway this is a fabulous thing to look forward to ..

Could you post some pics when you get it? Our online store opens next week so I'm hoping to order it from there if I don't see it in store before then.

Your are so right! Alber can wear his clothes by his own if they are overpriced!

The Jimmy Choo collection was cheap, considering the quality and the fact that a regular bag would have cost you pretty much 5 times what H&M charged.

It's all relative.

I'm going to be perfectly fine spending say £100 on a piece of Lanvin for H&M, when a regular piece of Lanvin would have cost me £500.

Omg Lanvin... that is really cool. Im not overly excited about it though since we wont get it.

HOWEVER!!!!! I did get some exciting news today while at H&M I bought some black high paper bag waist pants & told them I was looking for the khaki too. They told me our store might not get the other color. SO I was like I know... I wish they would get Trend sometime & thats when he told me their manager was away & they were going to be getting divided exclusive & with that would come TREND!!!!!!! I almost squeeeeeeeeeeeeeed out loud LOL. Said it would be here before Christmas!!!!! HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY!!!!!! LOL.

Anyways... also bought the cropped sweater that is in the Arizona Dream part of the magazine.

Never ever 100 buks for a piece! Although it a gorge evening dress or a high quality bag!

Alber said that it's H&m going luxury and not Lanvin going public!
So i will never ever spend 100 buks for a piece! Although its a gorge evening dress or a high quality bag !

on some flats maybe the dresses are £900+ so yes it's a good saving!

When I said cheap, i do not meant cheap as in low price, but cheap as tacky. This high fashion designers simply do not know how to design for the high street. I gave up long ago, it's with mild irritation that I hear of yet another colab.

i like v&r also ,
anyway - we can think of it like we saving 1000$ on lanvin piece but it is not true. h%M going luxury is still H&M. It is no reason why the pieces should be like half of the normal lanvin price. Collaboration is always more expensive than normal stuff, even trend pieces, but come on. If you can't deal with H&M reality of quality and price - this thing is not for you Alber. On the other hand alber is real good heart so i will wait for any preview of pieces and price before i will burn him in the hall XD
