…no Lanvin+H&M for me. While I was taking a shower this morning, our local radio was reporting the Lanvin+H&M collection LIVE. It aroused my curiosity and I kinda like the idea of “colour wrist band”, because you don’t need to wait in line for a long time like it used to be. So I decided spontaneously to pay a visit since H&M is just 3 minutes away from my work place. So, I was there at about 8:20, got an orange wrist band (it means my shopping time is from 8:40 to 8:55). Then I went to my office first, drank a coffee, had my daily croissant and then headed back to H&M. Waited only about 2 minutes before I was in.
Well, if the following report makes you feel uncomfortable, please please don’t be mad at me. I know there are a lot of people who love this collection and I really don’t want to be rude. It is just my personal review.
This is no doubt a Lanvin collection, with lots of Alber’s signature designs. However, the quality of most garments sucks. The only thing I found lovely is a purple ruffle dress which is made of 100% silk, it feels good in hand too (I decided not to buy in the end because I am sure I can get something better made and more beautiful for €149). Plenty of things are made of unpleasant polyester which I don’t like. The shoes look cheap, and the accessories, the pearls are actually very nice, but I am not a fan of those big plastic flowers. BTW, the tees, I am just wondering if they’ll survive after one wash because of the delicate embellishments.
I guess I am the only person in this world who walked into a store with everything on the rack but came out empty handed (people outside in queue looked at me with that “are you from another planet” expression on their face. lol). It’s probably just me being way too picky. If you found something nice, ignore my post and enjoy! ;-)
