Versace for H&M: Womenswear

Posted on October 21, 2011

There was a lot of negative commentary when we posted the sneak peek of this collection, but we’ve gotta say, looking at the whole thing, the womenswear is pretty damn fun. Bright, loud, tight, and head-turning, that’s what the Versace brand is all about and these pieces make for a surprisingly faithful downscale version of the house style. Shouldn’t every young gal on a budget have the option to try on a Versace dress and consider buying it? We say “Yes.” Power to the people, bitches.

        Why not a dress? These look pretty woman friendly in cut, especially the red textured one, and the two bustier ones.

          Honey, when a woman says a dress doesn’t come in her size, it’s polite to believe her.

          • http://www.facebook.com/samuel.j.donovan Samuel Joesph Donovan

            I suppose if a dress doesn’t come in a woman’s size, that’s one thing.  But…as someone who plans on making a career out of designing womenswear (I go to Parsons) it gets awfully depressing when women just give up on exciting clothing because they don’t look like the bag of bones used to advertise it–in my opinion, real women come in sizes 6 and up.  You lose the idea of fashion design when all you do is put random seams on someone who is essentially two dimensional–that’s not design; it’s self-indulgence.

            • http://dandelion.livejournal.com/ Jenna

              I hate it when people say they plan to make a career out of designing womenswear and then come out with rubbish like “real women come in sizes 6 and up”. You’re complaining because the industry doesn’t cater to larger sizes, but simultaneously rubbishing women who wear smaller sizes?

              I’m a US 0 or US 2, and I’ve never purposefully lost weight in my entire life, I’m just small (I also have US4 size feet). Thanks for telling me I’m not a real woman.

            • http://www.facebook.com/samuel.j.donovan Samuel Joesph Donovan

              I’m sorry to…offend you, miss.  You are certainly also a real woman.  What I meant to say was that I want to make all women look good, not just the ones that have the body that we idealize as a culture.

            • Anonymous

              It’s a nice sentiment you were trying to express.  FYI, it’s also hard for size-4-and-under women to find CHEAP clothes.  Yes, couture is available in those sizes, but volume retailers like Target and Walmart don’t sell clothes small enough for the tiny.  (They may occassionally have something marked a size 2, but it’s a big 2.)  Size 6 -12 is well taken care of for cheap/accessible fashion.  Under and over is a tough one.  I imagine it comes down to sales volume.

              Hope that’s helpful with marketing later.

              You’re going to offend any woman if you use “real” as exclusionary. I’ve always been a size 2-4. It’s genetic.

              Well, Samuel, those of us who shop in plus-sized stores like Lane Bryant are used to the idea that really fabulous clothes aren’t made for us. I don’t think it’s right; I see styles all the time that I could rock with my figure, including some of these styles. I don’t think I’m less deserving of beauty than a woman half my size. I’m just…used to it.

              As Jenna says below, “real women” come in all sizes, 0 to 30 and up. I should be able to find that fab black-and-grommet dress, or the crazy pink-and-gold, in a 22 and wear it to my next event, but I know I won’t.

              It’s a bummer all the way around…my greatest joy is the boom in fake breasts because for the first time EVER, you can find a D cup bra (mine were god-given) in a print, with matching panties.  They used to cut it off at a C cup and we were left with beige white and black boulder slings with shoulder pads!!!  They actually padded the shoulders to help carry the weight!  But it’s true that the fun stuff does not come in the larger sizes…although frankly, I’m disappointed in ALL clothes for the past few years because it’s BLACK BROWN OR GRAY – oh, now we get a teal piece here and there or maybe dark purple.  COME ON!!!!

            • Sarafina Angstadt-Leto

              But as someone with a small chest (A cups) it’s really hard to find bras. Especially if  you would like comfortable and fun. Either way someone’s losing.

            • Anonymous

              Lucky magazine had a suggestion about this a month or two ago (size A cup bras). It might be on their website. I can’t remember the price point.

            • Andrea and Dancy Mason

              Completely agree with the colour assessment — it’s been two years of beige. In terms of plus size, though, I really think ASOS curve has some great, colourful stuff. And blogs and internet sites have at least provided some avenue out of viewing (and dressing) women as only one shape and/or size, whatever that shape or size might be.

            • http://twitter.com/Alloyjane Alloy Jane

              Funny, I always see bras made for women who are thoroughly well-endowed.  Wacoal, Chantal, La Perla, Le Mystere, On Gossamer, etc, and all of them are fucking beautiful.  But to find a nice bra for an A cup that ISN’T padded?  Good luck.  It takes a lot of hunting.  Seems most lingerie companies expect women to hate their small breasts.  I don’t hate mine.  Sure, It’d be nice if they had been just a little bigger (barely an A cup here) but I’ve got more than enough butt to make up for it.  

              And let’s face it.  No matter what fashion pedals, historically, it’s that waist to hip ratio that really gets most straight men.  Long live the Frazetta feminine ideal!  http://revolutuck.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/frank_frazetta_familiars.jpgAnyways, going back to clothes.  I wish people would stop acting like ANY of it was made for “real” women.  I’m generally between 2-4 and petite and I have a hell of a time finding things that fit properly.  The too long pants I can deal with, but the choice is between fitting my ass and thighs inside and being able to stick my 18 month old nephew in the waist of my pants and well, nothing.  Because having a 26″ waist doesn’t mean I’ll be buying pants that are size 26.  And dresses?  Please, if I had a nickel every time I tried on a great dress that was saggy on the upper body and tight around the hips, well, I could buy at least one really expensive dress that would need altering.  Bah.

            • Anonymous

              To add more to the bra thing… yes, you might see cup sizes that come in D or up… but band sizes generally don’t come small with big cups so the big cup bras don’t fit correctly.  They assume that D cup means bigger all around.  I can’t find bras with a size 28 or 30 band that have a D or DD cup and that is pretty much the size I need.   Actually, I can find them, but I pay crazy prices.  There are two brands I can wear.  I can’t buy bras at all at La Perla, Intimissimi, Victorias Secret, Agent Provacateur… I moved to London and thought it would be so much better in a big city.  But no… they usually don’t have my band size.   I can’t tell you how many times it has been suggested that I take my bras to a tailor.  Sure, I’ll pay 100 bucks or more for your bra and then pay another 20 to have it tailored.  Rant over, just wanted to add my two cents in that being well endowed does not mean you can get a bra that fits. :)

              I know what you mean Laurel, I had to get all my bras online after I got pregnant and through breastfeeding. I was a 30-32D. VS didn’t carry that in store for their demi t-shirt bras and I didn’t want to pay $50+ for a lacy bra that eventually wouldn’t fit after my son weaned. Target, JC Penny and most department stores other than Nordstroms didn’t even carry 32 band in any size.

            • Rachel Moss

              London – and the UK generally – is brilliant for big cupped bras! Have you not found Bravissimo yet? From 28 back size and up to an L cup.

              The only time I’ve ever burst into tears was in a dressing room trying on bras.

            • http://www.facebook.com/samuel.j.donovan Samuel Joesph Donovan

              I also don’t agree with how clothes are cut–to a certain degree, I can understand how it can be cost effective, but I also can’t stand the notion that it alienates people who are of a larger size.

              The entire reason I decided to stick with fashion was because I want women to feel beautiful. Shopping with my mother and sister–who I wouldn’t EVER qualify as being overweight–and watching them glumly study themselves in a mirror, and declare themselves ‘too fat’ or ‘too hippy’ for something that I think looks absolutely beautiful on them completely breaks my heart.  I just hate it that women feel that they have to conform to some male idealization of beauty, of something as simple as body shape, of hair color even.  Even gay guys partake in it–judging women based on these highly, disturbingly sexualized notions–why can’t women just be embraced as beautiful for being women?

              Why does everything always come back to ‘men suck’?

            • Anonymous

              It’s not “men suck,” it’s the patriarchy. Which is a pervasive system we all live in. It’s great you want to change ideas from within your industry, and to an extent, influential people can do that. But, as much as I love bitching about fashion with TLo, we’re not changing the world that way. I do spend some part of my time on the politics, feminism, and social activism side as well. 

            • http://www.facebook.com/samuel.j.donovan Samuel Joesph Donovan

              And I suppose that the best way to make women feel as beautiful as they are isn’t necessarily going to be a change that occurs because of some 20 year old fashion designer, but a change that has to occur socially–I don’t personally believe in all this ‘define your waist’ crap.  I just want women to feel as beautiful as they are naturally, and not feel like they have to put on mascara, or restrict their diet, or wear heels to be beautiful.  Hell, if you enjoy it, then do it, but don’t do it because society says you won’t be beautiful unless you do.

            • Anonymous

              Oh, it’s out there. The selection is minimal compared to the treasure trove of clothing options for straight sizes, and it’s outrageous how differently the pricing is structured, but hot shit can be found. ASOS Curve is my favorite (as mentioned), Carmakoma, Navabi, Forever 21+, and even Old Navy have some great things. I have a gorgeous coat from Next (UK) that my skinny friends covet. Rachel Pally and Roberto Cavalli offer “white label” collection which are plus size… I could go on, but I’ll stop there.

              None of this diminishes the hateful Lane Bryant/Avenue hegemony but, you know.

              If you could give some thought in your post Parsons career to designing for women who are 5′ 1″, put all their weight on around their middles so they have very little waist indentation and 36G boobs I for one would be delighted.  BMI wise I am not overweight, but every single one of those dresses is made for someone with a waist and not much boob and would look dreadful on me.  Women don’t just come in all different sizes they come in all different SHAPES.

            • http://www.facebook.com/samuel.j.donovan Samuel Joesph Donovan

              I’ll be sure to keep that in mind!  I’m honestly at this point not even sure what I’m going to do with my post-Parsons career.  Entering the high fashion industry is definitely out–just a bunch of bratty, spoiled kids throwing crap onto a size two model and calling it legendary–but I get concerned that the more corporate world may not be much better.  What stores do you generally find have better clothing?

      I don’t understand the Versace cache. It looks trailer-park-trashy to me, and always has. There’s a reason it was featured in “Showgirls.”

      • Anonymous

        The appeal of “trashy” things is that they’re fun. Elegant, understated and tasteful usually translate to beige, flowy and unlikely to attract attention. While there are benefits to that sort of restraint, a lot of chicks wish they could put on something that’s Lisa Frank bright, sparkly and tight because these sorts of things are celebratory and daring. I know personally I’m usually having more fun in a short skirt and big earrings than I am in an Grownup dress.

        I thought that was one of the younger looks, but seeing as I’m almost 47 and the sun is kind of setting on my uterus so to speak, maybe it is the right skirt for me. It also has animal prints. Guessing it might be for the cougars.

      The shiny pink on the accessories will never look not-Barbie to me.  Alas.

      This would have been fab for summer. Too bad it’s already too cold to wear most of this stuff (at least, it is here in Chicago).

      love those jackets and the pants are WAY up my alley :D might have to get my hand on ‘em!

      I didn’t like the original shots posted either, but I will take #3 hot pink dress, the sequined green/blue #4, the black dress with the brass buttons and the hot pink patent sandals, please.

      Mostly hideous. The shoes are great though

      I particularly like the skirt that says “My vagina is like a tropical sunset.”

      LOL at the “my vagina is a beach at sunset” skirt.

      I’ll take the scarf and the last handbag.  The rest of you can have what remains.

      So cute. They’re super crazy but overall I really like the bright colors and throwback patterns. The two least successful ones for me are the pink heart dress and the silver dress.

      That little lilac dress is fantastic. I’ll take both the jackets and the embellished skirt as well, thanks.

      I think these are, overall, pretty fabulous!  The second dress reminds me a lot of Jennifer Paganelli’s quilting fabrics, which I collect…I love these bright, happy colors.

      Not too sure about the “my bajingo is a pink island paradise” skirt (and similar dress), but I pretty much adore the rest.

      I would rock that little black asian print jacket. Even though it has gold buttons, which I usually hate. I have been infected with something.

      OMG, that first and second dress.  I want them so bad and I know they won’t be in my size or my price range D= damn you Versace and H&M!!  *fist shake*

      the 1st dress & matching skirt are abfab, but the rest of the collection has kardashian written are over them.

      There’s a secret little place in my soul that really, REALLY wants a skirt with a picture of paradise right over my vagina.

      It looked cheap, tacky, and costumey the first time, and it still loos cheap, costumey, and tacky.  This is what I would use to costume a parody of a Jersey housewife on Saturday Night Live.

      Love most of this. Some of it veers a little too far into tackiness. The palm tree dress? The pink and gold? The silver? To die.

    • Anonymous

      Most of those dresses I had better leave to the younger and thinner than me, but the scarf I can do! I’ve always steered clear of the Tokyo H&M stores when these special collections are released but maybe this time I’ll be brave! :-D

      Oh yeah, this screams (toned down) Versace. For the life of me I can’t fathom the uh, dress?, 6th down. Is it a dress with a fringy bib for the fashionista who frequents Red Lobster? So confused. The rest are nutty young fun. I’ll admit I’m digging the pink and yellow bag a lot. 

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Some is cool, some is… well, the pants look like they were made by Josh.

      i really like a lot of this, i dont understand why other people didnt– unless, of course, it is the josh-reminiscence factor. maybe pre-this season on PR people wouldve liked them better.

      but:
      what is that thing that looks like a pink dalek anyway? w/ fringe, a pink dalek w/ fringe. is it a dress?

      The prints read tacky to me, but I’m loving the black leather jacket and the short solid dresses.

      I would never even try on these clothes they scare me so much. For ladies who are into Versace, but don’t have the matching bank account this is a great option.

      That floral jacket belongs with me. I love the leather one, too, but I’m betting I won’t be able to bring myself to pay money for what is probably a terrible approximation of leather.

      But the pieces were still hundreds of dollars. That is NOT “on a budget”. Give me a break!

      “every young gal”, you say? haha, like these would ever fit me. I like some of the dresses a lot, but what’s the point? This fat chick don’t even like dem purses.

      I love everything! That pink studded bag? WANT. SO MUCH WANT. And I actually think I could wear that purple dress and not look horrible…

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2UICH7S73GWVXIVXEIPIYGRMXU Jeff

      These cheap ugly clothes lack the panache of the true Versace brand.  The whole POINT of Versace is that it’s unapproachable in price.  HIDEOUS UGLY Charlotte Russe clothes.

    • http://shootingshoes.wordpress.com Amanda Gun

      Dayum! I usually don’t even like Versace (I’m fine with tacky, I just tend to skew a bit more rock-tacky than bright-tacky) but there are so many pieces here I’m seriously thinking of buying. I want the blue fringe dress, the red dress, both the black dresses as well as the purple one, and both the jackets. I’ll have to start saving up! And I see now that it’ll be released right as two of my friends are visiting, we’ll see if I can convince them that queueing for clothes is a good idea :|

      I could maybe see some of these pieces looking funky rather than trashy — that leopard skirt with a really crisp, white, and totally buttoned up oxford, or maybe that pink or palm tree dress. I still don’t get it either, though. When trashy is done in super-high end luxe there is sort of a tongue-in-cheek vibe, but when it’s H&M, and genuinely (or at least relatively) cheap…it kind of falls flat, in my mind.

      omg. My retinas are burning.

      but I think I like the purple dress. The black key skirt is great and those pink shoes are hot.

      Why do people like Versace?  I’ve never been able to understand – it’s all so Jersey shore, typically with higher-end craftsmanship, but still tacky and lacking any versatility.

    • Anonymous

      It’s not all for me but I like quite a few of the dresses and the black skirt.  Simple, colorful, and fun.

      It’s a non-issue for a fat, midwestern chick.  H&M corporate views the midwest as a flyover region.  Happily for my budget, I won’t even be able to purchase the pink/brass dress, the palm frond dress, the pink studded bag and the black shooties.  Lesson learned when I tried for the Lanvin collection. Thanks H&M for saving me money and making me resent you just enough to keep me out of the store period.

    • Addicted2Glamour

      No, no and no. It thinks it’s Miami and it’s really Jacksonville. It wants to be New York City but it’s actually Paramus. The shoes and bags are especially hideous.

      Some of those are horrifically ugly, but some are really cute!

      Shit. I hope they plan on selling this line in H&Ms here in Japan because I see several things that need to be in my closet.

      It’s mostly not for my tastes, but how fun for the young & younger-than-me-at heart!

      Though as someone who sees lots of young girls/women, I do hate the skin tight look, as so many young things (of ALL sizes) don’t seem to grasp the difference between showing off your shape and squeezing oneself into something which *creates* bulges & rolls. Even thin girls can (and, sadly, do) create rolls if their clothes don’t fit right. And then they worry about being overweight. Makes me crazy.

      Other than the “you can see the beach through my vagina” print, I like a lot of these. I’m definitely going to try on the pink studded number, as well as the black strapped dress, the red side strapped one, and the pink shoes. I always fall in love with impractical shoe colors.

      Versace’s trademark is walking that very fine luxury-tacky line, but this….just plain tacky.

      Love that sunset print skirt, gives me a great laugh every time I look at it. Some hits and some misses, but its overall better than the men’s line, go figure.

      does any one know what stores will be carrying this line? i plan on staking out a store nearby because WANT WANT WANT
