"I am thrilled to be collaborating with H&M and to have the opportunity of reaching their wide audience. The collection will be quintessential Versace, perfect for H&M and Versace fans everywhere," says Donatella Versace.
"Versace is one of the most important brands of recent times, and their collection for H&M will be glamorous and flamboyant - everything Versace stands for. Donatella Versace is sharing with us iconic designs from the archives. This is such a celebratory collaboration and it is perfect for the party season," says Margareta van den Bosch, creative advisor at H&M.
Versace is the latest house to collaborate with H&M on an exclusive designer collection, following the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Comme des Garçons, Jimmy Choo and, most recently, Lanvin. The 40 pieces of womenswear in the collection will be dominated by dresses that fit right in with the spirit of the season, featuring studded leather, silk and colorful print, with accessories including high heels and costume jewelery. The 20 pieces in the men’s collection will focus on sharp tailoring, including the perfect tuxedo, as well as belts and jewelery for men, as well. For the first time in a designer collaboration at H&M the collection will consist of some homeware pieces, including cushions and a bedspread.
I find all of this news beyond exciting!! Why, this is bigger than when she teamed up with Hot Pockets to do Versace Pockets (Ok, that was an SNL skit but I wish it were real)! I have always LOVED ME SOME DONATELLA VERSACE! I have to admit thought that Mya Rudolph is one of the main reasons that I love DV so much! Anytime I hear the name Donatella Versace I will always think of this:
