A few weeks ago I went to the VOD boutique online launch party and my favorite part of the night was taking pictures with my friends at the photo stand. Guests stepped in front of the camera, pushed a button, and within seconds were handed a 4×6 print to take away (look below to see one of mine with my brother, Nathan, and GOTM Marisol).
I miss my polaroid camera badly. There is something about instant cameras that catch more life and spirit than a digital camera (and that vintage coloration flatters everyone).
Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz designed a dazzling colorful collection for H&M and I finally got to dig in.
For those of you who are slightly unfamiliar, Lanvin is France’s oldest couture house and it has been in business for over a century.
To me, Lanvin is the end-all, be-all of fashion. (I am saddened that Amy Winehouse’s bloody feet were the ones that brought the label attention in the entertainment world (remember those poor flats?); however, I guess Demi Moore marrying Ashton Kutcher in Lanvin is somewhat redeeming.)
Regardless of the aforementioned PR catastrophe, I am thrilled that H&M has made clothes designed by such a talent available worldwide. There are so many women who are passionate about fashion yet can’t afford high-end brands (I know this is the only Lanvin dress I will be wearing this decade). Not only do these collaborations give them access to luxury, but also teaches them about elegance and style. After all, when is the last time a Forever 21 customer walked out in an elegantly draped dress with a wealth of clever details?
