Over the weekend, we went trolling at the Americana at Brand and Sunset Plaza area H&Ms to see what remained of the Lanvin collab. Not a single stitch. A Racked informant has been stalking a few of the Lanvin X H&M pieces -- you know, the pretty things that sold out quickly. We were actually at the Beverly Center earlier in the week; she just dropped by and here's what she found:
They had 1 flower dress in size 6 and 1 each of the red & black ruffled dress w/ the crystals along the neck both size 4. AND – a pair of leopard print shoes and black patent shoes, both size 39/8, and 1 bracelet! Of course they still had some of the ballet tulle dresses, a couple purple dresses and a few gold ruffle dresses. If you absolutely, positively HAVE to have a piece from the collection, there you go. Unless today's release of Black Swan results in a sudden spike of interest in tutu-themed dresses -- in which case, those voluminous tulle nightmares will probably sell out in a heartbeat.
