Lovely collection! One of the best collaborations (but I don't like the men part)...We'll see it better in stores the 23th ;)www.thebigiofactor.blogspot.com
in fact, i think we have to wait until we get to see and touch the clothes. but ur right, the women's collection is great so far! ;)
I guess I'm a bit late for this post, but I couldn't let it go without giving my opinion -that I've been repeating the past few days-: I really don't understand all the fuss over Alber Elbaz having done some cheap (and probably poor) copies of the Lanvin designs for H&M... and here are just some examples of it:http://blogs.elpais.com/delitos-y-faldas/2010/11/lanvinyhm.html#moreOn the other hand, I have to admit that the marketing campaign has worked out perfectly well, and I think it will be a huge success amongst new-comers, non experts and mid-class people. As far as I'm concerned, I'm not willing to buy something that everybody knows where/how/when/for how much/...I bought it!
thanks for your opinion, javi. generally, i do agree with your point of view. and quite frankly, the marketing campaign is a fantastic one! quite honestly, i am probably not going to buy more than 10% of the lanvin collection for h&m either. and yes, the quality may be poor and cheap to some extend. but dont forget that we're talking about h&m. this is not burberry, acne or whatsoever. its affordable clothing looking good. and the fact that you and I are not willing to buy the stuff doesn't make it a bad concept. alber elbaz is one of the most remarkable designers out there at the moment and he may have done some cheap copies of his own designs, but that's perfectly ok with me. the h&m collaborations try to make "fashion" affordable. as a consequence, you cant expect anything else or more than this. i think its a good concept and will definately be a big success, even among some of the "oldies and experts". because it doesn't really matter what you wear and where you got it from, but how you combine that piece with other clothes and make it a proper outfit. ;)
Well, fair enough. I see and understand your position…and I guess I'm only dissappointed because I liked better other colaborations -Sonya Rikiel, Karl Lagerfield- that made something more H&M's philosophy, instead of "cheap haute couture"… In any case, I'll wait and see personally... so far, I can say that I'm not very happy about the clothes but extremely excited over the photoshooting, one of the best I've seen this year!
