Oh, how I so wish La Redoute still had their American website online. Will they ever return?

It is also exciting to know that these designers are collaborating with some of the more accessible outlets. Target was really a hit when it did this but has recently began to miss more and more.

For one thing though it will keep changing the culture by continuing to inject more fashion consciousness into the mainstream who have traditionally seen fashion as a luxury instead of something more basic, which by all means it should be.

Not to completely go off topic; I just find it ironic that a gay designer, Alexander McQueen teamed up for a bit with Target, one would think to attract more customers, who has contributed funds to GOP causes - one for example, suppressing gay rights.

As to the main topic, I wished there were something like this for men.

That is a good point but at times you just have to say who the hell cares about politics and do what feels right. Offering affordable yet stylish clothes is good no matter the politics of the ones profiting. And it proves we can work with them....but I see your point.

I also wish there were more choices in men's fashions period and am glad that is changing. I was listening to NPR today and they were interviewing the woman who was behind changing the style of the Beatles.

It began with one of the Beatles, "the fifth one", and since him and that lady wore the same size at times he wore her clothes, including a collarless jacket, the Beatles first made fun of it saying it looked like someone's grandmother's jacket, then it became a hit and they all were decked out in similar jackets.

But yes, affordable fashion by great designers for men is needed too!

Lanvin + H&M was a huge hit.

Alber Elbaz 'Was Sure There Would Be No One' In Line For Lanvin Hearts H&M

It seems the Valentino and Gap collaboration will only be available in Europe...
