SO excited for this.

I think what he probably meant by that comment is that they (h&m WITH Alber) have managed to emulate the quality of Lanvin but make it accessible by the price, not that anyone could or that h&m could do it without him...

I personally think it's great that such a well-loved brand will be available to people who can't usually afford it.

how is that any different?

that, too, would in theory mean that products which Lanvin charges thousands of dollars for could essentially be produced and sold for a fraction of the cost.

take for example a jacket, for which Lanvin could charge $1800 for. the likely price for such an item at H&M would probably be in the ballpark of $200. if the quality is exactly the same, as Elbaz says, then Lanvin is either getting an additional $1600 profit out of it (rough figures, of course). Or alternatively, they are paying that amount too much for its production, if it can infact be produced at H&M costs.

now this of course is not true, saying there is no difference in quality between H&M and Lanvin is absolutely ridicilous. this is where Elbaz is selling out big time, and why I lost a significant amount of respect for him. not because he is doing a collection for H&M, which already might upset some, but because he is talking crap about it in order to sell.

So that's two and bit weeks to decide if there's anything you'd like to line up for..
I was referring to the fact that people are already making the decision to line up for the product which they have not seen, or making financial plans according to this.

It's actually posted on the Vogue Paris twitter, however it does say Vogue.com and not Vogue.fr in the post... Although don't know about other countries, but if I type Vogue.com in it takes me directly to my own country's site.

Woah, looking good... I was expecting much lighter based on the Alber videos. Looks great!

That looks great but I can't help but think it's going to look so cheap when in stores... I know it's H&M and I shouldn't expect an amazing quality coming from them, but still...
