You might not like this post and may even say I have no taste in fashion, but I decided to stay true to myself and share my optinion with you.
I don't like Lanvin collection for H&M.
I am really, really sorry but I just don't.
The whole blogosphere, newspapers, fashion magazines was so excited about this collection, saying it's great, creative, amazing. I admit, I was taken over by this enthusiasm. I saw the collection preview and thought "not really my style, but great design and after all it's Elbaz!".
Last night I went to H&M here in Paris to check it out myself. First big suprise: you can still buy the whole collection. There were hundreds of dresses, coats, shoes just waiting for you to take them home. I remeber that you couldn't find M. Williamson pieces anywhere last year!
Second surprise: quality is bad! Materials used are not nice, not skin friendly, I have tried one dress and couldn't stand 5 seconds in it. I dare to say, regular H&M dress fits and feels better.
There you go, I've said it.
But I still adore Alber Elbaz. He is a great designer.
I just wish I could see more of this in H&M collection:
