How cute are these holiday dolls designed by Alber Elbaz for Lanvin? Word has it they were made for window displays of a Parisian department store, but we’re itching to hang them on a tree. [Chic Report] Keep reading »

We’ve been waiting with bated breath to get a glimpse of Lanvin’s highly anticipated collection for H&M. French Vogue released the first image from the ad campaign on its website this morning. Our initial impressions: this first look tells us that at least a significant part of the line will be devoted to evening attire, and we’re glad Alber Elbaz incorporated some classic Lanvin shapes and silhouettes (loving the voluminous one-shoulder dress on the left).

The speculation and rumors have been confirmed. Lanvin will indeed be designing a collection for H&M, due in stores November 23. Although H&M wasn’t planning on disclosing the answers to their mysterious designer interview videos, the interwebs went nuts after guessing that one video featured Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz, so the retailer released a clip revealing Elbaz’s face. In the video, the he says, “When H&M approached us to do this collaboration, they asked if I could actually translate the dream that we created at Lanvin to a bigger audience. It wasn’t a project about a dress for less … I loved the idea that H&M is going luxury rather than Lanvin is going public.” Interesting. Does that mean we can expect price points to be higher than normal for H&M? Keep reading »
You can thank the “Mad Men” episode about Pond’s Cold Cream for reminding us of an era when advertising appealed directly to a stereotyped female psyche. As Freddy says about Pond’s: “If young girls started using it, maybe they’d find a husband and they wouldn’t be so angry … if you use Pond’s you’ll get married.” We’re thinking the folks at Lanvin drew inspiration from Sterling Cooper Draper Price, as their new fragrance “Marry Me!” is anything but subtle, cutting right to the chase with its white dress-clad model and company. Ladies, buy this perfume, and your guy will propose. Gag. [Fragrantica] Keep reading »
A) Have to pee. Like really badly.
B) Are just so tall they couldn’t even fit into the photo studio.
C) Have been crippled by years of walking in ridiculously high heels.
D) Are just trying to look cool. Dahlink, don’t you know that the hunched-over-bended-knee look is the thing in fashion now? Posture is so passé. [Fashion Gone Rogue] Keep reading »
We here at The Frisky try to take a “free to be you and me” attitude when it comes to body image, but today we are here to tell you that if you are a fashionista who aspires to have designer shoulders — sharp, tailored, chic (think: McQueen, Balmain, Lanvin) — you are going to have to get shoulder plastic surgery if you really want to be on trend. After all, who wants to have unstylish shoulders? We don’t. Our as-yet unaltered shoulders cringe at the mere thought of how pre-surgically off-trend they are. Thankfully, there’s a name for our disorder: shoulder dysmorphia. The diagnosis comes from DIS magazine, which predicts, “consumer anxieties over natural shoulder inadequacy will skyrocket, forcing women to undergo startling new surgical procedures, season to season, in order to keep up with the newest designer shapes.” We cannot wait to get our shoulders sharpened to shiny, skin-covered points that will make walking down a crowded street a dangerous event — for those who pass too close to us. To find out what type of shoulders you should tell your plastic surgeon to give you, check out the options after the jump. Keep reading »
And so it begins. I promised myself I wouldn’t fall into the usual trappings of being engaged, such as posting pictures of my ring on Facebook and devoting hours each day to The Dress Search. And so far, I’ve kept my cool, for the most part anyway. Still, that hasn’t stopped me from Googling “design your own wedding dress” and clicking on the bridal section at Net-a-Porter every now and then. (I was there to look at some sandals, I swear!) The latter departure led me to this little Lanvin number, which retails for a cool $10,860. Wait, I’m sorry, what was that? Correct — over 10K for a dress you wear once. Not that I’m shocked or anything. It’s Lanvin, not Forever 21. (Do they do bridal? Must check.) But it did get me wondering about how much women are actually willing to spend on these things.

We may roll our eyes at $400 jeans, but here are some real high-fashion denim wares that have a (more) legitimate price tag. French couture house Lanvin has teamed up with the edgy denim label Acne to produce this impressive collaboration of cocktail dresses, skirts, tops, and jackets. After seeing “high-style” denim disasters from the likes of Britney and Jean-Paul Gaultier, we really didn’t think that anyone could use the material to make something gorgeous. We’re loving the sculpted details and oversized bows. Alas, we still can’t afford anything from the line, but we love to look. [AcneStudios.com via HighSnobette.com] Keep reading »
