See Lanvin's H&M Collection

Back in September, we confirmed the rumor that H&M's next big designer collaboration would, in fact, be Alber Elbaz for Lanvin. The collection still doesn't hit shelves until November 23, but you can sneak a peak at the entire line in this video The Show.

 

Confirmed! Lanvin for H&M

Last week's rumors have been confirmed—Alber Elbaz will, in fact, bring Lanvin to H&M as the next big designer collaboration for the Swedish fashion giant. The collection, conceived by Elbaz and Lanvin menswear designer Lucas Ossendrijver, will be revealed on H&M's website via a short film on November 2. The line—which spans clothing, jewelry, accessories, shoes and more—will hit 200 stores on November 23. Clear your calendar and start planning your wait-in-line strategy now.

Hey, did you get your tickets? The Tobi blog works on selling tickets to the summer gun show in a recent post about the current dudes-in-tank-tops trend. The disturbing byproduct of this trend? Unsolicited armpit hair sightings outside of trips to the beach or your weird uncle's house. Ew.

Matthew Williamson for H&M: The Quiet Storm

As promised, we arrived on the scene early to witness the doors open to the long-awaited Matthew Williamson for H&M capsule collection. Though the first people in line arrived at 4:50 a.m. as an alliance to ensure they got what they came for, at 9:55 a.m. the crowd was still modest in comparison to the Comme Des Garcons queue in November. Once inside, the retail mob was quick to snatch up our favorite pieces, leaving only peacock cardigans, clutches, and necklaces behind. We scored a cute navy high-waisted skirt and marveled at the fact that this seemingly harmless crowd managed to clear the place out in ten minutes flat. Bravo.

 

Matthew Williamson's Laidback Glamour Hits H&M

Grab your camping supplies and credit card ladies, Matthew Williamson's collaboration with H&M is about to hit Powell Street (one of only eight stores in the country that are lucky enough to score it). Williamson, best known for his vibrant colors and prints, found inspiration for the line by looking back at eleven years worth of collections in order to find the true essence of his brand. What came out of it is an elegant yet playful collection full of bold silk summer pieces that refuse to be ignored. His graphic flamenco dress, electric blue suit, and tulip-silhouetted cocktail dress are the items that are driving us to battle the masses at 10 a.m., but you check out the rest of the collection here.

Dots and Serious Lines at Comme des Garcons H&M Launch

After reviewing the long-awaited Comme des Garcons diffusion line for H&M and finding myself disappointed (with the exception of a black deconstructed blazer), I opted to document the fashion mayhem instead of waiting with the masses in the 2 block-long line. I walked in at 10:01am and the racks were already empty, everyone's arms filled with polka dots. The crowd, which ranged from art students to eBay sellers, continued to wait in lines for the clothes off mannequins and the satisfaction of owning a CDG cardigan for $29.90. I, on the other hand, was content with taking in the surprisingly civil scene and making it out with an empty H&M Comme de Garcons shopping bag.

Here's the blazer I wanted
