The American appointments for a sneak peek of the Lanvin for H&M collection are scheduled for this afternoon, but hey guess what? It's already this afternoon in Tokyo! Intrepid fashion writer and friend of Racked, Misha Janette popped by H&M's Japanese headquarters this morning and snapped photos of about 15 key men's and women's wear looks from the hotly-anticipated collection.
The women's collection looks to be heavy on the party-dress looks—with lots of signature tiers and ruffles in lipstick reds and mellow yellows. Men's follows in the aesthetic footsteps of Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz's trademark look—lots of dandy-ish floppy bowties and even a swanky pair of metallic pink oxfords.
Check out our gallery of Lanvin for H&M preview looks above and tell us—which looks are your favorite? And watch this space, we're heading over to check out the collection first-hand this afternoon and we'll be bringing you even more photos and details from the showroom.
