I'll pay OK so I have the money right now, but I think that owning a piece by Lanvin is worth it. It's the design I'll be paying for, not the materials, if I buy an original Lanvin piece or Lanvin for H&M.

Has Alber ever designed anything that looked tacky to you?

All of them in my opinion designed tacky stuff for the high street, why should he be the exception? I dread to see Lavin style with cheap fabrics and high street finishing.

I find it quite hilarious that you're going on about cheap finishing? Alber's finishing at Lanvin is cheap? In production terms it's very cheap for the most part! The raw seams and unfinished element is a very cheap element that Lanvin just uses beautifully. I would imagine the only real compromise will be on the quality of the fabric used, but even then...

Cavali isn't to my taste at all, but some of the pieces they created for H&M were spectacular. The short beaded dress they did had the most immaculate finishing and construction that I've ever seen, and I've studied design and work in fashion, so I can say that with some knowledge.

I think they probably will use more expensive fabrics, and it might be quite expensive.

Just because it's meant to look unfinished, it doesn't mean it's a cheap finishing. I'm quite surprised with that opinion coming from you. Lanvin has beautifully constructed pieces, all details are thought to give a particular effect, regardless of the fact that is raw or perfectly stitched. It's not exactly the same as having a cheap finishing because you need to lower your production costs.

I did not like the Cavalli collection , Cavalli is tacky on a good day, although i do like some pieces, but mixing that style with H&M just tipped the scale , I have to admit it was not the worst collab to me , I think that honour will always go to the Karl collection. Back in my country they couldn't get rid of it even on the sales racks. And I still didn't recover from the nastiness of Sonia Rykiel and her sweaters & lingerie...
How much input do designers have on this things anyway?

Great Coat, Ida!

The coat was 800 DKR I think, and it's super heavy! They weren't cheap on the wool, that's for sure. Oh, and it fits as if it was made for me

I love that coat Ida, I tried it on myself, but on me it was just too bulky. It probably looks fantastic on someone who are higher than 5´2

I also bought the camel coat that xjessiex bought. I really hate the belt though but that's easily replaced. A good price compared to other camel coats i've seen so i'm happy and I like the tailoring
