Looking Forward To:
Lanvin x Acne Capsule Collection

Alber Elbaz, collaborating with the Swedish design firm ACNE (Ambition to Create Novel Expressions) on a 28-piece denim collection, sought to “go back to a product that has a dream to it,” he’d told The Daily. The head designer at Lanvin wanted to craft “desirable denim, from raincoats, tuxedos, corsets, and shrugs,” he explained to style.com in Paris at the Blue Soirée in the Hôtel de Crillon salon, where London DJ team Horse Meat Disco spun some tunes for the transvestites, Parisian A-listers, models and more gathered to celebrate the collaboration.
The purpose of the partnership wasn’t about “signing hardcore contracts,” he said, rather about something mutually fun and creative with the “young, energetic, sexy Swedes” Elbaz detailed to The Daily. (See ‘em for yourself.)
The Lanvin x Acne denim capsule collection will have a line of jeans ranging from $550 to $650, coats running $1,200 to $1,500 and jewelry and handbags upwards of $1,500 and more. Find pieces at Barney's and Bergdorf Goodman this November.
And while the guys get the short end of the stick on number of pieces from the collaboration, there’s these sick all-denim high-tops from the capsule collection at Sarah/Colette's blog will make the want of many. ...Lanvin and Acne, did you really see them screwing this up?
