Versace for H&M


You've probably already heard the news but, in case you haven't, just announced today is the latest – and now most highly anticipated - designer/high-street collaboration: Versace for H&M!

So, put 17th November in your diaries now, as Donatella Versace's exclusive collection launches in around 300 H&M stores worldwide and online.

Oh, and if one drop isn't enough, the Versace creative director has also designed a pre-spring 2012 collection for H&M that will be available exclusively online from 19 January 2012. (This must mean H&M is confident that its website will be able to cope with the demand better than it did for last year's Lanvin for H&M launch, which is promising.)

'The collections will be quintessential Versace,' says Donatella Versace (below, second left), who has turned to the archives to reinterpret some classic Versace designs. Referencing the vibrant heritage of the brand, expect the womenswear collection to be dominated by dresses in studded leather, colourful prints and luxurious silk, together with high heels and costume jewellery – all at high-street prices, of course.

'Donatella Versace's collection for H&M will be glamorous and flamboyant,' says creative advisor at H&M, Margareta van den Bosch (below, on the right). The menswear collection, meanwhile, will showcase the perfect tuxedo, as well as focusing on sharp tailoring. And, as a first for H&M's designer/high-street collaborations, Donatella Versace has also designed some homeware pieces. Versace bedspread and cushions anyone?
