above: looks from the Acne-Lanvin collaboration, available at acnestudios.com
I love Acne. I love Lanvin. But what to make of the Acne-Lanvin collaboration, which will be on offer starting tomorrow both at the online shop and at Barneys?
The louche shapes of Lanvin dresses are a brilliant match to Acne's Swedish laid-back cool. But the price points (starting around $500 for a pair of jeans) are a bit rich for my taste, especially given my more careful budgeting these days.
What do you think? Will you say yes to Acne/Lanvin? I may take a closer look. The denim on denim styling is a little too 1980s for me. But I will admit, I am a bit more excited about seeing the white denim line, which Acne will be releasing with Lanvin for Spring 2009...
