A reader devotes three paragraphs to explaining why the Lanvin x H&M collection didn't blow his mind. Excerpt: "I stopped by the Herald Square branch approx. 6:30pm [on Sunday], just men's left. The best part was the H&M-brand rip-offs of the Lanvin designs, which the store racked right next to the Lanvin x H&M clothes. Target does the same thing with their collabs. The $100 H&M military duster coat (made in Bangladesh) was just as (non)durable and basically identical in shape/cut to the $300 Lanvin x H&M version (made in Romania.)" Way harsh, Tai. [Racked NY]
