If you haven’t already heard the amazing news, yes the title is right, Versace has designed a line for H&M set for release in stores November 19th, 2011. But this amazing news isn’t a new idea just this year – it’s actually been in the minds of many for years. Donatella Versace was first approached by H&M a few years ago, where she first turned down the offer to collaborate and design a line to specifically be sold at H&M. Wanting to develop on Versace’s branding and reputation, her mind was elsewhere, however, she knew it was something she would love to do in the future. Today, Versace is a highly respected high fashion line, and Donatella says she wants to expand her demographic. Working with H&M was the perfect opportunity for this, targeting a wider audience with less expensive pieces; still keeping the bold flair of the original Versace line.
Personally, I love the entire collection. To quickly view photos you can go to http://www.hm.com/ca/versace#images, or like Versace on Facebook to view the album. My favourite piece would have to be a little black dress, with sleeve cutouts and gold buttons for an elegant touch (see picture below). Be sure to hit an H&M store near you on the 19th of this month for it’s debut!
