Out of many examples in the past where designer/high street collaboration comes to a crash, Lanvin/Acne certainly doesn’t dissapoint. Alber Elbaz’s designs for Acne launches today, pieces are available from Acne’s Lavin site starting today. Adorable pieces, absolutely a pleasure to look at, if not a Christmas treat. Designs have retained the subtle elaboration look executed in simple and precise cut. The latern sleeves that Alber popularised in his SS09 collection is also available for you to take home at £475. Unfortunately for most items you will not be able to choose size. I guess it is a risk a die heart fan is willing to take. Pieces start from £220 (a plain denim shirt). And as I am writing this, more and more pieces have “out of stock” slashed over its picture. Go quick!
I’d say this is my favourite piece so far. Retained that Lavin’s little black dress glamour with top notch Acne denim fabric. It looks great on, has great cut and only a fraction of the proper Lanvin price. At £440. Also comes in white
