Lanvin Loves H&M Collaboration this fall!

source The Independent UK

Lanvin is one of the world’s most exclusive fashion brands, with price tags to match, but now it is set to reach a much wider audience. The Parisian label will create a collection for the high street chain H&M which will go on sale on 23 November.

There will be a slightly shorter wait for the first glimpse of the clothes, however, which will be revealed in a short film on the H&M website on 2 November.

Although the novelty of the designer collaboration may have worn off since Karl Lagerfeld designed a range for H&M in 2004, the pairing is likely to see fashion fanatics queuing around the block. Lanvin is synonymous with incredibly refined and beautiful clothes rather than gimmickry or fleeting trends.

Alber Elbaz is considered a great talent with an instinct for cut and fabric who has transformed the image of the house since he arrived in 2001. He was born in Casablanca to a painter mother and hair colourist father, and moved to Tel Aviv when he was 10. He considers himself Israeli and joined the Israeli Defence Forces before choosing to study fashion design.

New Designer for Lacoste

Felipe Oliveira Baptist has just been appointed the new Creative Director for Lacoste

This morning, in France, Lacoste announced officially that Felipe Oliveira Baptist (F.O.B) will succeed to Christophe Lemaire (appointed new Creative Director for Hermes instead of Jean Paul Gaultier)

The 35-year-old will take up his duties immediately, it said, replacing French designer Christophe Lemaire, who has held the post since 2000.

The Portuguese designer will sign his first collection for Lacoste for summer 2012.

He has presented his own ready-to-wear label in Paris since 2009 as well as several collections as a guest designer on the sidelines of the official haute couture calendar.

His appointment is part of Lacoste’s strategy, unveiled this summer, to rejuvenate the brand and give it greater feminine appeal in a bid to spur sales on the Internet and emerging markets like China and Brazil, as well as to win back share of the US market.

Forever XXI in Shibuya in January 2011!

via Tokyo Fashion Daily

Forever 21’s Japan expansion is taking retail too the next level.

With HMV closing, Forever 21 will take over their much sought after Shibuya location. Located next to Shibuya Seibu and across from the Loft and the Shibuya Coach flagship store this Forever 21 store will be their largest retail space to date. With 4,000 sqm of floor space the Forever 21 will be six floors and Forever 21’s fifth location in Japan.
The new Forever 21 store will open in January after renovations are complete. On opening day expect a long queue, fantastic opening-day sale numbers and hopefully a great giveaway item.”

Now the question in everyone’s mind is… how did they get this location?

Lacoste Live! Fall 2010/2011

Lacoste Live!, a new sub-brand of Lacoste, targeting a younger, more fashion-forward customer, will open 60 Lacoste Live stores, the first to open in early September at 134 Prince Street in NY’s SoHo neighborhood, replacing an existing Lacoste boutique. Stores will follow in international markets including Paris, London, Berlin, Zurich and Tokyo!

The Lacoste Live collection will be a more contemporary line with slimmer fits and edgier designs, such as optic prints and zigzag stripes on tops. Prices will range from $79.50 for polos, $88 to $110 for wovens, $130 to $175 for denim and $125 to $225 for jackets. In addition, footwear will be a key category in the new stores.

While the stores will open later this year, the first men’s wholesale collection for Lacoste Live will hit department and specialty stores next spring. Women’s wear under the new label will launch in fall 2011.
