Lanvin for H&M Collection Preview

So if you haven’t heard, Lanvin is teaming up with H&M to bring an affordable collection to women all over the world! It’s exciting news for those who love both Lanvin and H&M and are looking to snag some of these pieces at a price that won’t burn a hole through their wallet :). The collection looks fabulous with tons of cocktail dresses, oversized ruffles, pointed heels, vibrant color and more! Check out Styleite’s photos that include prices for some of the pieces you’ll see in the video above.

The collection will debut in stores on November 20. To my utter dismay I will not be able to be in a state with H&M for a few weeks which I think will be too late to score the gorgeous cream skirt with a side ruffle…. anyone who wants to ship this to me – let’s work a deal.

LOOKBOOK: More looks and close ups on the clothes … how fabulous are those sunglasses? I’ve heard they’re going to go for $19.99: a must have! Looks for men are included at the end of this video including some bomb oxfords that I think my boyfriend would be able to rock :)

PROJECT RUNWAY musical side note:

For those of you who watched the unbelievable finale of Project Runway Season 8- who else was totally digging the music from Gretchen’s show at fashion week?! I know that for me it made her show more appealing because the music plays a huge part in the overall feel of a show. That’s one of the reason’s why I love YouTube-ing shows instead of just checking out photos because they call it a show for a reason! It’s also the song in the Revlon “Just Bitten” commercial. Wondering what it is? I have your answer!

Don’t worry, in case you missed the show I won’t spoil the ending! But seriously, what an ending. I feel bad for both (X) and (Y) because one lost, and others are saying the one who won really shouldn’t have (which is not cool what’s done is done!). It was a great season of incredible looks and I look forward to hearing more about both of them and all of the other contestants!
