kill_switch: maybe my hearing is fucked up but my gf (french) always seems to pronounce it more like a mix between lawn-ven and lawn-veh. of course whenever i go to repeat it to her she says im not doing it right.

ok maybe im exaggerating a bit. i would kop lanvins at retail under the rare situation where i REALLY love them and think they will run out of my size. i was borderline about to do that for these patchwork black/navy ones that i couldnt find anywhere. i almost called the lanvin store to get them but then decided id just wait a bit and get a similar colorway for cheaper.

most boutiques that sell lanvins seem willing to negotiate on price. i havent tried haggling at nieman marcus because most of the people that work there are retards (one dude didnt even know lanvin makes clothes) and because id prefer to give someone else my money. the models that retail for 800+ will almost always come down in price since hardly anyone cops at those prices. the sequin ones i want now (posted a few pages back) retail for 1200 or something. at my local boutique, what do you know, they still have every single size available (albeit only one of each so im fucked if someone actually buys the 7).

i guess it goes back to the "conditioning" thread. id say spending < 500 for a pair of lanvins is a good deal. above that......id just wait a bit for the price to drop some, which, 90% of the time, it will.

if you are looking at a specific pair on Colette (or any item on colette for that matter), i say insta-kop. that website seems to be frequented by the biggest ballers in the world and all sizes disappear instantly.

They are definitely nothing new this year but their old designs were much better than what they have been coming out with the past couple of seasons. They need to go back to these colorways/designs.
All these old CP sole Lanvinz are still cool though.

on a side note, i insta-kopped some lanvins off yoox. my first purchase on yoox. when i was opening the box the whole time i was thinking: "whats going to be fucked up?" well guess what...they are fucked up. literally. manufacturers defect. why am i not surprised. fucking yoox. what a scam. garbage photos, garbage sizing info, garbage item info, garbage models, garbage quality control. its the internet equivalent of marshalls. id rather pay full retail than deal with this sort of hassle. the only thing good about them is that they offered an option to send using carbon friendly shipping and box choice

so you're sending them back right?

fuck that'd be annoying. A waste of time and must've been a huge disappointment.
