Sneak Peek at Versace for H&M

Posted on June 21, 2011

This one’s for the Versace-philes out there because it’s really the tiniest of sneak peeks.  H&M announced that its next designer collaboration will be with the House That Gianni Built. Donatella, ever the impresaria, wore one of the H&M designs to take her bows on the runway after the Versace spring menswear show in Milan:

That’s pretty fabulous.

Press release-isms:

“Designed by its creative director Donatella Versace, the exclusive collection will look back to the vibrant heritage of the brand, full of leather, print, colour and exuberance in exclusive materials at fantastic H&M prices. The collection will include ranges for women, men and selected pieces for the home. It will be available from 17 November in around 300 stores worldwide, as well as on-line. In addition, Donatella Versace has also designed a pre-spring collection for H&M which will be exclusively available in countries with H&M on-line sales from January 19, 2012.

“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.”

The released pics only give you a taste but it really does look very Versace. Start saving those pennies, girls.

  • Besides the fact that these clothes look really good (and I hope the shoes will be sold as well), can I just say how fab Donatella’s boots are?

    • I wish I had the kind of job that allowed me to think this in the morning: “Hm, what shall I wear to work today?  Ah, yes.  The black leather pants and the 8 inch platform boots.  Perfect!”

  • Love Versace!

  • I love that I can clearly see Darren Criss and that pink sock of his in the background of that first picture. XD

      Great catch!

      • Pictures of him at the show have been making the rounds on tumblr, so of course the first thing I see when I open this post is him and that sock. As someone put it, “they’re like a beacon of awesome”. ^_^

    I love the leather dress….it will be interesting to see these in person. Of course, that’s if the store nearest to me gets them.

    Looks like a trip to the San Francisco H & M is in order. The pennies, they will be saved. Looks like my husband will be getting some Versace too, because he would look amazing in those jackets.

  • Lovely!

    I love that toga inspired dress.

  • I will camp outside H&M in London if I have to…my god, they look fantastic.

    Does anyone else feel like making a little mini shrine to Donatella for the wonderful offerings she’s made to the fashion world this year? I’m gonna start making mine in my closet right now….

    Versace is hit-or-miss to me, usually in a big way either direction. That said the jacket & skirt combo on the model wearing two different shoes looks cute, as does the white sheath. Though that anyone would want to bedazzle an innocent white sheath with so many faux brass studs gives me pause.

    And whatever combination of gym time, surgery and and foundation garments she’s employing, gotta give Ms. Donatella credit for looking good in her clothes.

  • That wild little floral multicolor dress is just gorgeous–of course, I don’t have the body or style to wear Versace of any flavor, but that’s okay. I’ll admire it from afar.

  • OMFG! I’ve never given a crap about these ‘famous designer does H&M’ things, but I MUST HAVE THAT BLACK DRESS WITH THE UNEVEN NECKLINE!

      I will be lining up on release day to get my hands on that dress. It is FABULOUS!

    I like, but I’m not even getting my hopes up that they’ll show the big gals some love.

    If only anyone will actually be able to buy them. Limited release and snatched up by bulk buyers.

    Donatella looks great in that dress! She should cover up more often.

      From your lips to God’s ears!

      • fun dayn moyl in gots oyern!
        {i woulda written it slightly differently but apparently thats the standard [?]}

  • Is there something terribly wrong with me that I am actually going to fly to NY and stay with friends to shop for that black dress? Lol I usually had one friend who would do my H&M shopping for me (oh, how I miss it!) but now he’s working full-time so….

    I just don’t wanna have to troll around and pay ten times the price for it on ebay later….so it’s a justifiable cost, right? I don’t have a problem….

  • I need that white dress.
