    Exclamation Fashion News

    Lanvin is the latest design house to partner with H&M!!! (I KNOW!!!!). Collection, both menswear and womenswear, will be available to view online from Nov. 1 and on sale at H&M stores Nov. 20th. I'm going to have to drive 4 hours to my nearest H&M, but I'm getting my hands on some Lanvin gear for sure!!!

    I just dont get why they have to have us standing in line for these things. Why arent they making enough for everybody? Is it a marketing thing, like if they met demand, 50% of all metropolitan populations would look like H&M Lanvin bots? God, every time I hear about affordable fashion collaborations I can't ever get that excited because I dont have the patience to fight bitches for the item which is probably a stupid asshole size anyway.

    Probably. Limited editions are a good sell to the press, get people excited to buy immediately for fear they can't buy later and sometimes even create mob hysteria, which is apparently great for publicity. See the Kate Moss stuff they do at Top Shop. Create shopping mayhem, get in the papers, sell everything, including loads to people who buy it to resell as a premium on ebay .. make loads of cash, have no leftover stock to deal with. Oh, and then there's the mark-up you can do on limited/designer pieces that are made in exactly the same set of Bangladeshi/Chinese sweatshops and from the same crap fabrics as all the non-branded stuff in the store.

    Not that I'm cynical or anything. Obviously.

    The nearest store to me is Phoenix, AZ. Not going to drive across the state to get there.

    I have 6 H&M stores in my area, so I don't have much to complain about. I don't have too many special designer pieces nor have gone on opening day, but I've managed to find what I'm looking for.

    I want it all! I kind of feel the same way (I would much rather a Gaultier trench!!!! to the target version), but access isn't always a reality. Plus, if you're going to buy ready-to-year at the mall/gap/h & M then the fabric, construction, style and price is pretty much on par with other ready-to-wear mall/gap/h & M stuff.

    Wow, I really just cannot picture what that will be like. I have a hard time imagining how the basic, plain Gap sort of aesthetic will meld with Valentino.

    I got excited, and then I read this part..

    The collection is timed to hit Milan, London and Paris stores--and unfortunately no stores in the U.S.--as Gap launches on Milan's Corso Vittorio Emanuele.

    Hmmm. I wonder about Canada? I doubt it.

    She looks incredible. I cannot wait to see what else is coming out now that designers are forced to expand their market.

    I've been noticing (or maybe just getting out shopping more) that you can find just about every style of shoe that the big wigs have put out, in a more affordable and still totally cute identical version. I remember only having access to about 1/3 of the trends being offered by places I could afford to frequent. Now there's 5 versions of each and every trend! I know clothes have caught way up too, I'm probably just not hunting hard enough. Soon theres going to be no excuse to not be fashionable and the streets are going to be populated with everyone looking and feeling beautiful all the time I have a dream!
