In a post on Garance Dore today, Garance's assistant reveals that she is one of the cuckoo nuts people who slept on the New York street in order to secure a place in line to shop the Lanvin x H&M collaboration back in 2011. According to her, "it was freezing, a little scary, but totally worth it." Update: We previously reported it was Garance who slept on the street, but it was, in fact, her assistant. Presumably Garance was home—warm and not scared—in bed. [Garance Dore]
