Its Lanvin but not as we know it!

Who remembers the Lanvin for Acne collections?  
They were really amazing - Alber design at a much reduced price (of course this was well before H&M).  This dress was from the first colaberation and i love it - i wear it belted as it is voluminous but to be honest it looks great both ways.  
What i have never tried is as a coat - i think it could work - will have a play one day! xx







Acne Lanvin Dress from Matches - (shout out to Natalie, Catherine and Rob - the private shopping team who found this amazing piece - if you have a fashion emergency you know who to call!!), Topshop belt, Dolce Leopard bag and those new Zara pumps, oh and not to be forgotten amazing mcqueen bracelet/hand art! xx

  17. Claire: You're such a teacher of fashion! Why? If anyone wondered how to do a shirt dress and accomplish a demure, label loving (me) look...well here you have it! LOVE your style: You do it right! Ooh, I could go on about this pic, but I'll put a muzzle on it (Frank would appreciate that bit, lol). PS- Your man is pretty awesome with his photog, btw. xx from Soleil
