Quest for Lanvin in the US
Thought you guys might be interested in the latest ... still searching for a piece of the fabulous Lanvin resort collection. Called Barney's, and was told they didn't order any Lanvin resort at all. (Whaaaaa?!?!?) Called Alan Bilzerian per Caffeine's tip ... SA is checking with buyer to see what she bought.

Sent e-mail to US subsidiary contact e-mail on Lanvin's website ... promptly bounced back. Called the phone number ... busy signal. Busy signal. Busy signal. (888/933-6600--I suspect it's not a working number.) Lovely ...

If anyone else has any tips for me about where to get Lanvin in the States, I'd be most appreciative. I don't think anyone here carries it.

Btw, I misremembered ... it's not the Lanvin website that lists Barney's, it's their ads ...

they carry comme and yohji, so it doesn't make any sense if they do not carry Lanvin. Let alone is one of the hottest brand right now......

what i got was that they had big production problems with resort for some reason and that a LOT of the collection did not even make it into production...
some of the best pieces will not be produced at all...
and apparently the prices are sky high...
which is why it wasn't ordered by many stores...

...
so tragic really...

What about Kirna Zabete? I don't remember.
<edit> What about Ikram in Chicago? She's a big player for stuff like that.

Ahhhh ... that is *very* sad. I thought it was quite odd that they would release photos with that Bazaar interview, get them published in an American magazine, and then you have to be the fashion equivalent of Sherlock Holmes to find any of it to buy ...

Well, I have been waiting for a slow clothes season to take on that little antique rose gold project mentioned elsewhere ... this could well be that season

PS Thanks for the tips, Faust. Lanvin seems too calm to me for Ikram, but I may give it a shot ... this info from softgrey makes me think I'm SOL though ...

I'm pretty sure that Ikram carries Lanvin. Oh, also, Linda Dresner in NY may but I'm not sure on that one. Please let me know if you find out anything b/c I'm looking for Lanvin resort as well.

no no...
i remember now...!!!!!
linda dresner, nyc def has some resort...
though some of their order was not able to be filled...

and they have great taste...
call them!!!......

not at jeffrey's or kirna zabete...as far as i know...

fyi-there was a lovely t-shirt that someone i know ordered...
the order was not able to be filled because the t shirt did not go into production...
because it wasn't ordered by enough stores...
to give you an idea on price...
the WHOLESALE PRICE- was $2000......

that is why you can't find it anywhere ta-ta...

...

^ Have mercy ... this is making Balenciaga prices look reasonable OK, muchas gracias for the tip, softgrey. I'll give them a call tomorrow.

PS You must spread Reputation around before giving to softgrey again blah blah blah ...

Update on Linda Dresner: I called (twice actually) and both people told me that they buy only Pre-Spring and Spring Runway.... no resort. The second time I called the person kept asking if I was sure it wasn't pre-spring... I was like "no, it's definitely called resort or cruise" and they were like "I've never heard of that."

What?! don't you think if you work in fashion you should know what a resort/cruise collection is?!

Fashionista, did you find anything?

Actually, this is very good news

pre-spring = resort = cruise

But I agree, the SA at Alan Bilzerian didn't know what resort was either. She thought I was saying Lanvin had a second line ... or that I was shopping for resort clothes ... I don't think we ever had a meeting of the minds

Oh, I guess I'm the one who didn't know opps... it's just that I always thought pre-spring was like spring I where they come out with the stuff they don't show on the runway but it's not quite as early as resort. like I think if you look under the designers/collections section, there is a roland mouret pre-fall and then resort.
