Versace is teaming up with H&M for the Fall. The duo is planning to collaborate on a collection of womenswear, men’s clothes and home items, which will be sold in H&M stores around the globe starting November 17. Versace and H&M also plan on putting together a pre-spring collection to be sold online January 19, according to Women’s Wear Daily.
According to The Telegraph, “The womenswear collection will be dominated by dresses featuring studded leather, silk and colorful print, with accessories including high heels and costume jewellery. The men’s collection will focus on sharp tailoring, including ‘the perfect tuxedo’, as well as belts and jewellery, while for the first time in a designer collaboration at H&M, the collection will include some houseware pieces, including cushions and a bedspread.”
“I am thrilled to be collaborating with H&M and to have the opportunity of reaching its wide audience. The collection will be quintessential Versace, perfect for H&M and Versace fans everywhere,” stated 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 is perfect for the party season,” said Margareta van den Bosch, creative advisor at H&M.
At the moment, H&M is currently selling (and continuously adding to) their vast summer collection which can be found on their website www.hm.com.
