"I have some friends on the [Lanvin] design team, and through them I met Alber Elbaz," Acne designer and founder, Jonny Johansson, explained to Fashion Week Daily at the recent Moët-drenched Paris party to launch their fabulous new collaboration which started over drinks a mere few months ago. "Just the way he talks about denim is so inspirational. I wish I said those words myself! We're a young brand, and they are a couture house. The mix works."
