I wish they carried the collaborations at more stores. They never have anything at the H&M stores in my area so I end up having to get them on ebay for double the price.

It would be so funny to see this collaboration become SORT OF disappointing.

Hate the blurred stupid promotion!

I agree, the blurred video was plain stupid. They should just release the images and build it up that way like before, instead of releasing a pointless blurred video.

I thought the trailer was cute! I'm sure those black dresses on the maids will be for sale?

I personally think that blurred video is Abler's charming decision.

In previous H&M collaborations with other major fashion houses, their strategies were not as notorious as this one.

Plus, did you know Alber's attitude on this collaboration? Here it's what he said:
Quote:
I have said in the past that I would never do a mass-market collection, but what intrigued me was the idea of H&M going luxury rather than Lanvin going public."
Looks like H&M is a beggar and Lanvin is a quite "generous" giver...LOL.
Apparently, Alber hates mass market.
However, every single time I saw his childish and awful mid-priced Lanvin Tshirts in boutique for sale, that definitely makes me laugh.

I have mixed feelings about this, but if I want to buy, my mum just moved and her city has an H&M and I'm beyond excited.

I think the indications of lining up for this collection without anyone actually having seen it really speaks for these collaborations. 99% hype, 1% about the product itself.

What Elbaz said in one of the promotional videos really made me lose a lot of respect for him. He literally said that H&M managed to perfectly emulate the quality of Lanvin for a fraction of the price. if this were true, he might as well say that a $3000 Lanvin piece is actually worth $50. can't believe how badly he sold out.

wow. seriously. I am excited over this collection, but I'm not making any final conclusions or decisions until i see pictures of this collection. This marketing/hype strategy is irritating and could just turn me off to the whole collection before images surface online.

Now we finally knew the other side of Mr. Elbaz...

I don't really get that comment. What do you mean line up for it without having seen it? It goes on the site on the 5th, and then collection launches the 23rd - slightly differing depending on what country you're in.

So that's two and bit weeks to decide if there's anything you'd like to line up for..
