This collab does sound interesting, though the choice of lanvin is surprising. Alber Elbaz definitely in it for the $$$
generally the collabs run in the same price range as h&m's higher-end lines, which have dress shirts around $30-59 dollars and sportcoats around $129. the matthew williamson and jimmy choo collections had leather jackets that were around $230 or so. i don't remember how much footwear in the latter collection was.
quality wise it's usually decent, about on par with something like j crew but of course you're not getting all the bells and whistles of the regular line so fabrication is one of the biggest differences. h&m is pretty good about that though as well as ensuring fair labor practices, so you can rest easy knowing they were probably made in a sweatshop with a fan or two and maybe a bathroom.
the bang/buck ratio is probably going to be similar to the +J line, but i think the prices will be about $10-20 more.
