My endless Lanvin affection…

I can haz Lanvin?

No really, I can’t stop all of my anticipation for this collection. I was really excited for these pieces, because I am the Lanvin fanboy. While nothing is as good as the original, and I can’t wait to see the day I can accept no less, these are essential Lanvin pieces now made for H&M, the other love of my life. Swoon. Here’s a peek at the menswear. The trench, the bow ties, the pants; I want them all. Are those plum-colored shoes or are my eyes deceiving me? It could be all excitement and the fact it’s almost 4am.

Me thinks neither Indianapolis locations will be one of  200 stores that receives the collection. Oh well. It saves on the old bank account and the innocent shoppers trying to get to what I deserve: every piece.



Lanvin Spring 2011

Lanvin is heaven. Always perfect and everything more. From airy silks, master draping, to perfect pleats and simple, yet interesting silhouettes, Alber never can disappoint me. My favorites include Karlie in her billowing pink and fuchsia gown, Frida in her perfectly executed opening gown, and let’s not forget the split dress on Lily and the wonderfully constructed suit on Abbey Lee. Perfection.


Lanvin x H&M

This is old news, right? I’m sorry, I just can’t hold my excitement. I am really eager to see what Alber has created for H&M. I’m doubting the items will be available of any of my Indianapolis stores, but if they are, I’ll for sure be purchasing a piece immediately. While I may be male, I’m sure there is a piece that I can wear, right? Lanvin is always at the forefront of my excitement when the Paris catwalks begin, so I’m expecting great things. What just raised my level of anxiousness is the fact that Natasha Poly will be modeling the campaign. Seriously cannot wait.

Along with the release, Lanvin x H&M has created a blog competition to bloggers around the world to register their blogs to be voted for a chance to win the world exclusive trailer of the H&M fashion show. Naturally I placed myself in, but who knows if I’ll get any votes. If you want, go ahead and vote for me. I don’t believe the winning blog has even reached 700 at the time of posting this. VOTE HERE I guess.

Lanvin Fall/Winter 10/11

Lanvin’s campaign finally came out and I love the cast and the clothes, the makeup…a little too hard. The eyes in particular are a tad whorish, but the models are definitely working this campaign. We have Anja Rubik, Magdalena Frackowiak and Mariacarla Boscono posing up something fierce for Steven Meisel. Oh Alber, please tell me it is the last season for these tribal influenced pieces.

10 Magazine, 10th Anniversary, 10 Covers

10 Magazine is celebrating its 10th anniversary with 10 separate covers of 10 designers they call “Gods and Goddesses.” Well, duh. Each designer was photographed by a photographer of their choice:

Domenico Dolce/Stefano Gabbana: Terry Richardson

Helmut Lang: Passport Photo

Vivienne Westwood: Jeurgen Teller

Ralph Lauren: Bruce Weber

Karl Lagerfeld: Karl Lagerfeld

…and the rest of the designers include Alber Elbaz, Azzedine Alaia, Donatella Versace, John Galliano and Tom Ford.

I love D&G’s photo. They’re so damn adorable together, not to mention Stefano is kind of sexy. Vivienne’s is just awesome with her contrasting skin, what she’s wearing, and the background painting. It’s like the contrast is meant for each other. I also love Tom Ford’s fore I plan marry him one day. What a sexy man he is.

“These are some of the faces that have made our industry and it is an honour to be celebrating them. 10 magazine has a history of celebrating the best creative talent in the world and we are honoured that these icons of fashion agreed to be our cover stars,” said Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou, the magazine’s founder and editor-in-chief (who is also creative director and fashion director at Harper’s Bazaar UK).
