Tear Sheet: Lanvin for H&M ? OMG!!!

 Rumor has it that It is now confirmed that the French brand Lanvin will be the next designer "collaboration" to hit H&M. We heard it from, who heard it from WWD, who quotes official sounding "market sources". The collection will hit stores in early November, which means we can expect the frugalista crowd to start camping out around Halloween.

Previous flings between high end designers and this chain have had varying degrees of success, at least in our humble opinion.  Karl Lagerfeld, and Stella McCartney, which sold out in a matter of hours, were well received, but the offerings in more recent seasons have been underwhelming. Here's hoping Lanvin can turn this around.  

Our prediction? Long lines and lots of leopard print. So, will you risk life and limb to pick up a Lanvin at this price point?

Update: H&M has confirmed this news via a press release. The collection, for both women and men, will hit the stores on November 23rd.
