Lanvin clearly like what Acne did with Fantastic Man, as they’ve decided to start making denim with the Swedish company. Acne’s previous collaborations bode well for this upcoming one, as the Gentleman’s jean were a great addition and should have been more widely available.
The good news about this is that these two companies almost can’t fail to make something great. The bad news is that it looks likely to be a women’s only line, judging from Alber Elbaz’s comments. It may just have been that FWD didn’t ask about the possibility of a menswear line, so we can still hope. It’s set for a 2009 launch.
