When Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz (pictured above) does things, it's certainly not by halves. Yes siree... jean-wearing fans of Lanvin will be super-excited to know the label is to introduce its first line of jeans - and in order to get the best possible result, will be collaborating with cult denim brand Acne.

"I want to bring Lanvin into their know-how," Elbaz told The Daily. "What if you don't want to wear a skinny jean? It's time to go back to a product that has a dream to it. I asked myself, 'What kind of jeans can I bring that will be a Lanvin jean and Acne spirit infused in one?'"

Although there has been no official contract signed and specific details are yet to be established, Elbaz says the line will have price points comparable to Lanvin ready-to-wear and is set to be released in 2009.
