Wednesday, November 4/2010.

Last night, the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario) hosted the Toronto Media Preview of the much anticipated LANVIN x H&M Collection, which is slated to launch publicly on November 20/2010 in North America and on November 23/2010 worldwide. This exclusive collaboration will make available the absolute essence of Lanvin to H&M retail outlets in 200 countries around the world. Within the separate collection for both men and women, Alber Elbaz (creative director of Lanvin), brings the Parisian glamor to life at very affordable prices and translates the “dream of luxury” to the mainstream world.

I had the opportunity to attend the preview, mingled with Toronto’s media & fashion regulars, sipped on lavender lemonade cocktails, nibbled on some very yummy h’ordeuvres, took a million fun pictures (of course), played a little bit of dress up and made a list of some of my LANVIN x H&M must-haves! It was an intimate, but fun event and at the end of it all, they gave away sweet gift bags containing an over-sized bow-tie, bright red lipstick & a full look book/notebook & CD. They were kind enough to give me a couple extra to give my Twitter friends an opportunity to WIN this fabulous gift bag by playing my weekly $100 SHOE DAILY. Click here to check out who won the bag and a $100 CREDIT at Fashionably Yours then follow me on Twitter because I will be giving away one more bag to one of my lucky Toronto readers!! Now, the only trick is finding someone who’s willing to wait in line to buy it all for me. Keep you posted. xo

The LANVIN x H&M shoe collection was pretty and for only $99, you can get these red hot, crystal encrusted pumps!! Someone might lose a limb over these on launch day. Scary thought. IMG 1234 520x390 EVENT: Lanvin x H&M Media Preview at the AGO   Toronto

Ahhhh, I will fight for these sunglasses that retail for only $19.95!!!

The LANVIN x H&M Men’s Collection consisted of many simple minimalist classic pieces, tailored jogging pants (an oxymoron perhaps?), flashy shoes & ties, and several show pieces, like the Bow tie tuxedo dress shirt & a purple leopard t-shirt.
