Designer Clothes For Cheap

Are Budget Designer Collaborations Worth the Cost?

The fast-fashion retailer, H&M, has partnered up with high-end designers in the past including, Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, and now Lanvin. If you ever wanted a Lanvin dress, but could never afford one, perhaps you should check out the Full Lanvin For H&M lookbook on Fashionologie. The high-fashion designer has collaborated with the affordable clothier to come out with a collection that's a lot cheaper than what the Lanvin brand generally sells for. The line comes out in stores on November 20, so I'm sure plenty of budget fashionistas have their wallets ready.

I was looking at the selection, and it can be considered a good deal if you take into account how much Lanvin clothes cost — the Lanvin For H&M pieces are around 90 percent off the designer price. Still, those dresses range around $200 and are a lot higher than the regular under $50 H&M dresses. What do you think of these collaborations — are they worth their price tags?

If the fit is right and it looks fabulous, then yes, it is a good deal. But I wouldn't buy it just because it had the name if I didn't feel amazing in it. Many are very label conscious and will buy no matter what, but I believe it is better to keep an open mind when trying on these lines. Try on another dress with a different label that is regularly $200 and see what the differences are. I wouldn't want a low-end Lavin just because of the name - it has to FEEL like a Lavin.
