I Love Lanvin

by amantduvin

Today anyone can love Lanvin but who can love Lafite?

As fashion trends and economic times are measured by the length of a hem, Alber Elbaz shows how to democratise couture with style and class for H&M. In David Lynch film mode, Lanvin is more precious than flowers or diamonds. But a bottle of wine?


The accessible Lanvin collection was revealed the same day that Lafite became inaccessible to most, breaking wine auction records, elevating to masterpiece prices. Fortune that enfin the dress was the colour of Lafite? The pronunciation of Lanvin sounds like loin-vin: wine a long way of out reach, after peaking in Hong Kong.
