Earlier this week, in an item about the Lanvin for H&M collab, WWD quoted an H&M spokesperson as saying, “Madonna and J.Lo have [already] asked for pieces from the collection, but we’re not lending out clothes until the runway show on Nov. 18.”
Then Elle noticed that some British starlets (who are way less famous than Madonna and J.Lo) were wearing the collection on Wednesday. Then I noticed that Leighton Meester was wearing the leopard pumps at a Vogue event on Wednesday as well. And then a reader pointed out that Korean actress Ha Ji Won wore head-to-toe Lanvin for H&M to the Asiana International Short Film Festival on November 4.
So it seemed peculiar that all of these young actresses across the globe had somehow managed to get into Lanvin for H&M and Madonna and J.Lo would have to wait until November 18. Turns out it’s not true. A spokesperson from H&M told us that the brand is, in fact, working with Madonna and J.Lo to get them pieces from the collection and the hold up is due to scheduling conflicts. H&M assures us that Lanvin hearts H&M hearts J.Lo and Madonna and they’ll be receiving their favorite pieces from the collection shortly. PHEW.
