Fashion überblogger Bryanboy was in town for the Lanvin x H&M launch. "I wore my loot and walked around NYC on Saturday. It was funny seeing people carrying Lanvin x H&M paper bags. People held them with pride, sort of like a badge of honor. I often looked at the shoppers' faces and ended up exchanging smiles with them. No words were uttered... they understood what I understood. It was like being part of a cult." [Bryanboy]
