H&M’s Next Designer Collaboration: Versace!
Kate Hudson, Lady Gaga and Jessica Alba all have Versace in their closets — and now you can, too. Today, H&M announced that its next buzz-worthy designer collaboration is with the iconic Italian brand, and includes looks for men and women — and for the first time, home goods — designed by creative director Donatella Versace. “I am thrilled to be collaborating with H&M and to have the opportunity of reaching their wide audience,” the designer said in a release. “The collection will be quintessential Versace, perfect for H&M and Versace fans everywhere.” Look for lots of prints and bold colors — both hallmarks of the legendary brand. “Their collection for H&M will be glamorous and extraordinary,” added Margareta van den Bosch, creative advisor for H&M. “This is such a celebratory collaboration.” The womenswear collection will include studded leather and silk dresses, shoes and custom jewelry. For men, expect the “perfect tuxedo,” plus belts and jewelry. Home pieces consist of pillows and a bedspread. The collection will be available in 300 stores worldwide, and hit select shops in the U.S. on Nov. 19. In addition, Versace designed a pre-spring collection, which will be available exclusively in countries with H&M online sales beginning Jan. 19, 2012. This collaboration comes hot on the heels of H&M’s sold-out collections from brands like Jimmy Choo, Stella McCartney and most recently, Lanvin. Learn more in the video clip below.
