Lanvin H&M Collection Debuts in New York

H&M’s latest big name collection for less from Lanvin debuted in a high energy, star-studded fashion show on Thursday night at the Pierre Hotel in New York City. The presentation spared no expense and boasted some big names from models like Dree Hemingway and Lindsey Wixson to style celebrities like Pixie Geldof and even Vogue’s Nippon editor Anna Dello Russo. Dello Russo sported a monochromatic bright pink look and a live accessory—a grey poodle. Director Sofia Coppola, actress Emma Roberts, and designer Anna Sui were among the celebrities in the front row, eager to take in the long-awaited collection, called Lanvin(hearts)H&M from designer Alber Elbaz. The Moroccan-Israeli designer used eye-popping colors for his chic Parisian dresses with touches of taffeta and opulent-looking ruffles. The collection will be available in limited H&M stores, beginning Nov. 20.
