Harper’s Bazaar’s Glenda Bailey Didn’t Think a Lanvin Diffusion Line Was PossiblePosted on September 3rd, 2010 1 comment
When we attended the finale of Bravo’s The Fashion Show (remember that show? A poor man’s Project Runway) last June, we ran into Glenda Bailey, editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar, and asked her if there was any designer she’d love to see come out with a diffusion line. She was dying for Alber Elbaz to create a Lanvin one, but didn’t think it was possible:
“Obviously, there’s one I want but it will never happen is Alber Elbaz from Lanvin because he always says that he thinks that diffusion lines are a bit like being Cinderella. And he feels like on the main line the sisters get to go to the ball and so he’s always said that he will never do that.”
Happily, Elbaz changed his mind and decided that this Cinderella line would be going to the H&M ball after all by stating that this will be “H&M going luxury rather than Lanvin going public.”
Tomatoe, tomato, this is a change of heart that has the fashion masses cheering.
The line will be revealed November 2nd and will be in stores November 20th.
