Albert Elbaz designs for H&M.
H&M’s designer collaborations are much anticipated events so when the designer is announced, everyone gets very excited. This year, H&M has invited one of the most beloved and influential fashion designers of all times to design a collection, Albert Elbaz.
Alber Elbaz, and Lanvin’s menswear designer Lucas Ossendrijver will be designing both the womens and men’s line for H&M. The collection will be showcased on November 2nd hm.com., and will be available at H&M stores worldwide by November 23, 2010.
“H&M approached us to collaborate, and see if we could translate the dream we created at Lanvin to a wider audience, not just a dress for less. I have said in the past that I would never do a mass-market collection, but what intrigued me was the idea of H&M going luxury rather than Lanvin going public. This has been an exceptional exercise, where two companies at opposite poles can work together because we share the same philosophy of bringing joy and beauty to men and women around the world.” Alber Elbaz, artistic director of Lanvin.
