The announcement of the next designer collaboration for H&M has taken the fashion world by storm. So much so that Lanvin is trending on Twitter (which is a feat in and of itself since most Twitter trending topics typically involve some teenie-bopper). That is right fashion folks, H&M upcoming designer collaboration is with Lanvin, clearly one of the most influential brands of this century. (more…)

Lanvin Wrinkled Shoulder Bag

Lanvin is my new obsession. After I saw the Lanvin Happy Partage Metallic Bag I could not stop picturing myself with that bag. Jeans and a white tee, little black dress, skirt. You name it, I pictured myself with it. (more…)

Unlike the shoes from Lanvin Spring 2011, the handbags can’t necessarily be called a revelation. But that’s fine; Alber Elbaz has created an aesthetic so good at Lanvin that it doesn’t need any fixing, just a little tweak here and here to set us on a new course for a new season. Spring 2011’s bags have a little more structure than what we’ve seen from the brand in the past, but there’s still no mistaking them for anything but signature Lanvin.

The newly stiff lines in some of the collection’s small shoulder bags are very much in keeping with the ladylike, smaller-scale trends that have reinvigorated accessories recently. The creamy neutrals and weathered brass hardware leave no question about from whence these bags, came, however, and Lanvin has carved out a nice spot for itself within the trend. For those who prefer a bit of a softer silhouette, larger and less sturdy bags were also seen. The standouts, though, were the egg-shaped clutches that closed the collection, adorned with yards of mismatched chain that served as the ultimate neo-vintage handle. As with many of Lanvin’s best evening bags, they were jewelry and clutch, all in one. (more…)

Lots of designers talk about their “woman” in abstract terms. The Marc Jacobs woman, for example, enjoys a bit of humor in her wardrobe. The Rick Owens woman wears a lot of black leather and will only date those who subscribe to a similar aesthetic.

What’s a man with a sense of style supposed to do for a carry-on? Often, men’s designer bags either skew too Ed Hardy or too feminine, and the task of finding one that’s luxurious, stylish and still a bit masculine is a bit more difficult than you think. Leather bags in particular seem too often to lean toward the womenswear side of the aisle, but not all men want to spend their luxury luggage dollars on nylon or canvas.

Enter the Lanvin Military Duffle Bag. This design strikes the perfect balance between macho and high-end, and the details are just “Lanvin” enough to be distinctive without looking like a woman should be carrying it. (more…)

As far as I can tell, Lanvin no longer produces the Lanvin Cabas Satin Logo Tote. For some of you that’s not exactly a problem, but if you wanted one and now find yourself without the opportunity to buy one, Kate Spade is here to help. And by “here to help,” I mean “here to make a very similar bag.”

The Kate Spade Seraphine Nylon Bow Tote is made of a different material and doesn’t have the slouchy charm of the Lanvin version, but for a much lower price and a brand with a very structured aesthetic, that’s to be expected. The main points of the bags remain the same – they’re both brightly colored, leather-free totes with black, bow-adorned handles. Lanvin has been a very popular source of “inspiration” for less expensive brands over the past year or two, so it should come as no surprise that such a close approximation of its satin totes is readily available.

The Lanvin tote, which retailed for $795, is sold out. You can buy the Kate Spade version for $295 via Saks.

Between London’s first-ever dedicated men’s fashion week and Pitti Uomo in Firenze, menswear has been all over the fashion radar this month. In keeping with current trends in the category, the London and Pitti shows were full of prints, patterns and generalized male fashion insanity.

Thursday is my least favorite day of the week lately. You’re so close to the weekend that you can almost taste it, and yet you still have a full day of work ahead of you before you can even get to Friday. And then a full day of work on Friday before you can get to happy hour. I don’t know how to describe that, other than “cruel.” Particularly when it’s summer outside and all I want to do is go get some frozen yogurt and stare at something that’s not my computer for a few hours. I’m sure almost all of you can feel me on that one.

My employment (and your enjoyable blog-reading) count on Megs and I sticking around here for the foreseeable future, though, so if I have to stare at my computer, I’m going to do it with some serious eye candy: the Lanvin Sea Breeze Crystal Minaudiere. You can almost feel the wind coming in off the water, can’t you? (more…)

For some reason, the last day of the work week is always the hardest for me. The things that I’m tasked with completing seem larger, take longer and don’t go as smoothly as they would on, say, a Tuesday.

Whenever a bag becomes as big of a hit as the Celine Luggage Tote, other brands are bound to take notice of what made it so successful. And that’s not just true of smaller brands looking to get a piece of the pie or department store or discount labels looking to capitalize on a trend at a bargain-basement price point; other major designers would be silly not to co-opt design elements that consumers respond to so favorably.
