If I had a dime for every time I’ve said, “I would pay ANY amount for a pair of jeans that make me look fabulous”, I would be a very wealthy girl. Incidentally, there really couldn’t be a better time to start up a collection, because the Lanvin & Acne jeans collaboration will be hitting Bergdorf Goodman & Barneys this Fall! The denim line will start at $550, with coats around the $1200 $1500 marks. (GASP!) Alber Elbaz of Lanvin and Jonny Johansson of Acne have managed to create a extremely versatile 28 piece line using dark denim exclusively (no distressed or acid wash here!) to create chic dresses, belted trenches, tuxedo jackets, blouses, slim but not skinny jeans, & denim bags. The collection will also have shoes and jewelry priced in the $1500 range. I’ve never been enthusiastic about denim dresses or jackets, but I’ve never seen them done right until now:
