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.

Support you so much.

Some people are really innocent enough to deduce all those big designers could do amazing quality under mid-priced budget for mass market. That makes me laugh.

If there's no difference between a Lanvin piece and a Lanvin-H&M piece, how ridiculous and embarrassing could it be to design a collaboration line as a so-called high Fashion designer? Less production, cheaper fabric, that's the basis of a H&M collaboration, or the budget would be really awful. You expect to buy a Lanvin jacket under few hundred dollars? All you can buy is similar look authorized by Lanvin, without being caught as a copy cat.

I'm not impressed. Isn't this the usual garb that H&M produces? If I hadn't know that Alber Elbaz and Lanvin were involved, I wouldn't have guessed that it were any different from H&M's usual collections. The charm of Lanvin for me lies in the way its luxe fabrics drape, flow and move. Translated into H&M's 'sateen' and polyesters, that charm is completely lost. Twinned with those cheap-looking strings of pearl, it all looks... well, cheap.

I don't see a bag? I see a silver tray that's been put outside of a hotel room suite... as it's set in a hotel isn't it?

Well, I presume you meant the object in the right hand corner of the ad campaign image!

is the preview on Vogue.fr supposed to be identical? cause i can't access the page, all it gives me it that the page is 'n'est pas disponsible'.

have some people here ever bought something from a designer collabo with H&M? as far as i can remember, they tend to be more cotton, silk, merino and cashmere than 'sateen and polyester'. and since a lot of Lanvin pieces play with the flow of fabric, i think that will be incorporated.

and maybe i just got lucky, but the purchases i made from H&M wore very nicely, felt nice and most importantly are not some polyblend that will melt under fire. then again, if you buy a dress for 10 Euros, what do you expect.

i doubt that the same quality of a Lanvin piece will be the same as Lanvin for H&M
he is just trying to make the customer feel better and make it seem as if they had real Lanvin...I dont know why anyone is actually taking that into consideration...its a part of Marketing

Ugh, as much as I love Lanvin, I would be really dissapointed if I was a Lanvin consumer, who paid good money for a dress and design that now the entire world will own in polyester!!

He should have changed the dresses, not copied them from previous collections in cheaper frabrics.

Seriously, this polyester talk! Alber himself created a whole set of gowns and dresses using polyester himself! If he deemed it fine for main line Lanvin then I'm sure it's fine for H&M.

Besides, the dresses usually retail upwards of £100, and are almost always 100% silk.
