Lanvin is on a lot of fashionable minds lately because (as you most certainly know) the H&M collection has dropped; inspiring hysteria, outrageous eBay mark-ups and even a couple rumored stabbings as the harrowing waits continued unabated this past weekend.

I’m planning to sit tight for a few weeks and hopefully end up with a pair of sunglasses, then I’ll be happy without any trips to the emergency room or (worse) having to wake up before 6:00 AM.

So here’s a little love for unadulterated Lanvin, impossible to duplicate down and “translate” to a lower price point: black python, Mongolian fur, a silver heel.

What with the H&M collection’s t-shirts getting scalped online for hundreds of dollars, you might as well consider the real thing.
