We’ve been eagerly waiting for this one to see how it was going to shake out. This is just a sneak peek at the line, but it’s got our interest piqued.
Press Release, take it away:
“H&M is proud to announce that its fall 2011 designer collaboration will be with one of the world’s most legendary fashion brands, Versace. Designed by its creative director Donatella Versace, the exclusive collection will recall the vibrant heritage of the brand, complete with leather, prints, color, and exuberance in exclusive materials at fantastic H&M prices. The collection will include lines for both women and men and selected pieces for the home. The US will release the collection on November 19th in select stores. The collection will be available in about 300 stores worldwide. 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.”
It’s definitely a line for the young folks, which is fine, since that’s H&M’s target customer. Not everyone wants to wear the kind of looks that turn every head in the room, but for the young guy or gal who’s all about the attention-getting without spending a fortune, this is a great set of looks. Very, very Versace. Can’t wait to see more.
