hot under the collar


"What if you don't want to wear a skinny jean? It's time to go back to a product that has a dream to it."
Oh my. Tell me it isn't true.
Alber is sick of skinnies too? thank god!
And what is this? Mr Elbaz is teaming up with ACNE?
i can feel a sweat coming on..
and i got a hernia when I heard about Alexander Wang and Uniqlo, so who knows what this is going to do to me.

The Vogue Daily article follows:
DENIM devotees rejoice: Alber Elbaz has revealed that Lanvin is working with cult label Acne on its first line of jeans. "I want to bring Lanvin into their know-how," the designer tells The Daily. "What if you don't want to wear a skinny jean? It's time to go back to a product that has a dream to it. I asked myself, 'What kind of jeans can I bring that will be a Lanvin jean and Acne spirit infused in one?'" While no official contract between the two labels has been signed, Elbaz confirms the project is going full steam ahead, with 2009 in mind for launch. And it doesn't stop there. "It's being created out of a need, like how we don't do an entire bridal line but instead have a few pieces," he added. "It's the first of several niches I'd like to build."
altogether now, "eeeeee!"

I knew about this a while back and I for one am eager to see what Alber will come up... I believe it's not really an equal parternship/collaboration as such but Acne has the denim know how and means and Alber and his team will be doing all the creative stuff...

I love Alber with all my heart, can't wait to see the results!

Considering Alber, I'm kind of scared, yet anxious, for the jeans that might come from this collaboration. It's like when you rub a magic lamp and this genie pops out offering you 3 wishes.

WOW, that's is awesome news I think. I think it will really change the notion that jeans are the domain for the new hip generation. Denim could use an injection of the kind of sophistication and poise that Albaz always brings to his collections!!

I still love skinny jeans
I have twig legs and they are the only jeans that I can pull off in flats
Wide legs are lovely, but I have to wear heels or I look like I'm drowning in denim!

I read about this yesterday and I'm so excited! Except that I think I heard that it's going to be at usual Lanvin-like prices, which will mean disaster for me.
