Lanvin and H&M, why do you tease us so! While this exciting partnership between the French luxury house and fast-fashion chain has been shrouded in mystery from the get-go, no doubt to drum up as much anticipation and hype as possible before the collection is unveiled on November 2, this is simply torture.
On Monday we saw the first official trailer for the collection, featuring Leigh Lezark clad in a French maid's uniform serving a teapot of something "Extra Strong" to designer Alber Elbaz as he furiously sketched away. Here we get a behind-the-scenes look at the collection's campaign photo shoot, featuring Natasha Poly and Bruno Kladar in a dark love story, and while Poly trills about how amazing the clothes are—"all the skirts, the dresses, the shapes, the fabrics, is really, really amazing"—the blur-wielding powers that be prohibit us from seeing them on her. So here's what we know about the collection so far: there are skirst, and there are dresses.
