As if the imminent arrival of Christmas wasn't enough, tomorrow sees the launch of Lanvin's second collaboration with Swedish jeans label Acne- and we know which event has us the most excited.
Alber Elbaz, chief designer at Lanvin and all round fashion genius has created a collection to work across both men's and women's wardrobes- all entirely made from denim. Last year's Lanvin for Acne collaboration was an instant sell-out and this year's light-weight denim and draping is sure to be as popular.
The various shades of faded denim combined with classic Lanvin tailoring makes the pieces lust-worhty rather than a denim-on-denim 80s disaster. Cropped jackets and sleeveless blouses create an altogether feminine, silhouette-enhancing collection while the one-shoulder silk blouses seen on Lanvin's S/S10 catwalk are reflected in the one-shoulder dresses and gathered skirts. We predict the collection to sell out quicker than last year so get ready for tomorrow's launch.
