As we all know today is the day Lanvin x H&M collaboration unveiling to the masses, with USA had the headstart on 21st November. I already had a couple of items in mind (I'm veering towards a few accessories as the old sizing woe does not allow me to even think about buying this collection's suits/ track bottoms / shirts).
I'm lucky that my little sister is currently in Seoul, Korea, and as they DO have a brand spanking new H&M branch there recently launched on last February,it's time to play the big brother card and to ask her favor to get me the stuff I want.
In my more financial side of mind I did a quick calculation; the price is still relatively affordable for my middle-class salary budget. In my mental note I was fantasizing about the shiny bronze lace-ups, over-sized dotted bow tie (which is very Alber Elbaz, the creative director of Lanvin's womenswear division) and the square-framed sunglasses void of crass logos:
But this morning I got a call from my sister only to be informed that all the shoes and sunglasses are gone. The only accessories left are the bow-ties in brown and purple....
So which bow-tie did you think I pick, just to console myself?
