Lanvin for H&M Available In-stores and Online

Well fashionistas, the wait is finally over as tomorrow is November 23rd and that's the day that the much anticipated Lanvin for H&M collection will hit stores. And the good news is, as was anticipated (see Lanvin for H&M the Full Collection), as well as being able to purchase the collection at selected H&M Stores from 9am tomorrow, it will also be available at H&M online from 7:00am. This is great as we can avoid the long queues and shopping frenzy that these designer collaborations usually involve.

Yes, we've seen the H&M images, we've seen the promotional videos and we've even seen a backstage film shoot for the designer collaboration but now, after all the sneak-peek teasers, this covetted collection will be available to purchase at the cheap chic, high-street global retail chain H&M. Well we've had plenty of time to check out the collection and work out the pieces that we might be interested in, so it's now time to shop. I can't wait!


Lanvin for H&M Haute Couture Auction

H&M are also running an interesting fashion auction in which you can bid for exclusive haute couture creations customized out of pieces from the Lanvin for H&M collection as well as Alber Elbaz's original five signed sketches for the collection. These special pieces were showcased by celebrity models, Pixie Geldof, Olga and Anna Dello Russo and Dree Hemingway, during the exclusive couture fashion show at the Lanvin for H&M celebration held last Friday at the ballroom of The Pierre Hotel in New York. Guests at this celebration party included Sofia Coppola, Andie MacDowell, and Elettra Wiedemann among others. Below are two video clips with red carpet A-list celebrity interviews and catwalk footages from the Lanvin for H&M haute couture auction:

"To see it on the catwalk tonight styled by Alber, in his own way, is totally and utterly inspirational." – Hilary Alexander, The Daily Telegraph

"The show was so much fun. It is hard to impress this crowd and everybody was like laughing and clapping and it was great, it was really amazing!" – Elettra Wiedemann, Model

All proceeds from this fashion auction will be donated to UNICEF, as part of H&M’s “All for Children” project, a great cause. The online auction will end on November 26 at 11.00pm. To check out the auction or place your bid visit the Lanvin for H&M haute couture auction site.
