I'm somewhat slightly obsessed with these designer collaborations, as much as i would like to flounce down to Mayfair in my chauffeur driven car and pick up my new little black dress, it ain't gonna happen (not for a while anyhow.) The whole reasoning behind these designer/high-street collaborations is simply fabulous, providing great labels, and mostly great designs available to all women.
Since Jimmy Choo and Sonia Rykiel jumped on the H&M bandwagon, i've been hungry for more. And as i'm sure your quite aware, after a months of speculation and teasing, it was announced that Alber Elbaz, Creative Director at Lavin will be the next designer to whip us up into a frenzy.
As much as ever, information regarding the collection is very much kept secret, with details being released slowly. The collection is due to be released on the 23rd November, with another video explaining more details. As much as they have tried to pixilate the clothes in previously released videos and keep it under wraps, of course, there's always a leak here and there..

However, things just got a little bit more exciting. H&M have just announced that on November 18th, H&M will be showing the full collection on runway at the Pierre hotel in NYC and streaming it online for us over the pond to watch too. Stay tuned,
Personally, i couldn't be more excited for this collection. I love Lavins clean, classic designs, and not forgetting their to die for accessories! If your not all that familiar with the brand, here are a few snippets of their A/W '10 range.
Are you excited? Are their any brands you would love to see collaborate with H&M?
