My initial reaction was that this ad campaign for Lanvin’s Fall ’11 line is horrible. I mean, Pitbull?! Really? And although the dancing and coordinated outfits are fairly awkward, Alber Elbaz’s cameo at the end totally makes it. Happy to see a fashion house not take themselves too seriously!

Tim and I had a pretty active weekend despite what seemed like 98% humidity. On Saturday we decided to check out the Brooklyn Flea - embarrassingly, I have never been.
