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.
