Versace for H&M


 

Sometimes it pays to be up early.

During my bleary eyed 6.00am blogging session yesterday, I immediately woke up when Vogue.com broke the news on Twitter that Versace has been designing for H&M. The early fashion bird catches this seasons worm so to speak!

Despite previously saying that a high street diffusion line was not an option, Donatella Versace has relented and said “I am thrilled to be collaborating with H&M and to have the opportunity of reaching it’s wide audience. The collection will be quintessential Versace, perfect for H&M fans everywhere”. The womenswear collection will look back to the Versace archives and be dominated by that infamous signature glamour in the form of sleek fit, studded leather, silk and colorful print with high heels and costume jewellery to finish.

 

 

 

 

 

Versace is the latest in a long line of esteemed designers to pair up with H&M including Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Comme des Garcons, Jimmy Choo and Lanvin.

As always with these partnerships my initial excitement fizzles to mild enthusiasm tinged with a sense of acceptance that it’s highly unlikely that I’d ever get my hands on any of it. Unless you’re prepared to camp out in Regent Street ready to spring into action (on the morning of November 17th, for those planing an attempt), or pay top dollar on eBay, it’s normally a given that your wardrobe will sadly go without.

 

 

 

 

 

Though I fear glamour lust must be getting the better of me as I have to say, on seeing these images, if I were in London on the day I would definitely give it a go. Will you be attempting to secure yourself a little Versace this winter?
