Behold Lanvin‘s earmuff design, complete with a jeweled brooch and dyed fox fur. Any guesses as to how much these winter warmers cost? (Hint: It’s more than some people earn in a month.) The answer after the jump! 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 »
