Versace For H&M

This morning H&M announced that its Autumn 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 look back to the vibrant heritage of the brand, full of leather, prints, 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.

Mark 17th November in your diaries, as that’s the date the collection will go on sale in around 300 stores worldwide, as well as on-line.

Donatella Versace will also design a pre-spring collection for H&M which will be exclusively available in countries with H&M on-line sales from 19th January.

Versace follows the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Comme des Garçons, Jimmy Choo and, most recently Lanvin who have all collaborated with H&M.

How excited are you about this collaboration?

Donatella is clearly very excited about this collaboration, because she wore a Versace for H&M dress yesterday as she took her bow after her Spring 2012 menswear show.

      • meimei June 21, 2011 at 10:40 #

        But I live in Australia and they don’t ship here :(

        • Fashion Critic June 21, 2011 at 10:43 #

          bummer :(

        • T from Sydney June 21, 2011 at 15:57 #

          damn it

          why its sooooo unfair

          i love australia but sometimes it sucks

        • maria June 21, 2011 at 16:14 #

          maybe it’s a stupid suggestion, but do you have any friends or family in the UK you can ship it too? And then they can send it to you in Australia?
          That’s how i do with my European friends.

        • meimei June 23, 2011 at 14:55 #

          That’s a good suggestion. Time to ask around and see any of my family and friends has connections with Europe.

  7. T from Sydney June 21, 2011 at 09:52 #

    can you buy H&M from australia yet??

  8. suzz June 21, 2011 at 09:54 #

    donatela once swore she’d never do a high street collaboration.

    • Ahot June 21, 2011 at 16:18 #

      Thank God she changed her mind lol.
      This might become a new trend for Couture designers, since they’re all struggling with bad economy nowadays. *keep finger crossed & hope for more*

  9. Ahot June 21, 2011 at 10:19 #

    O.M.G.* Dead & gone to heaven*. FINALLY. Nothing will stop me for getting more than one item: OH the fight! I must stop eating & living right now, so i can afford to empty the shops in Oktober & January.

    • Fashion Critic June 21, 2011 at 10:31 #

      I agree. Nothing will stop me either.

  10. Jones19 June 21, 2011 at 11:12 #

      We will have to wait until until they are announced

  15. Steffie June 21, 2011 at 13:02 #

    brilliant!!

  16. Anamika June 21, 2011 at 13:05 #

    Sry but nothing for me.
    I ran to K.L for H&M yrs back but dissapointed with the material of the clothe. Also to cut wasn’t THAT special.
    And now Versace…..is just a good marketing publicity.
    and I guess the material would be of the cheapest quality!
    Indulge yourselves please! :-)

    • Fashion Critic June 21, 2011 at 13:54 #

      Lanvin was of the highest quality.

      I’m sure this will be too.

      Had Donatella not said she was wearing Versace for HM in the video, we would’ve assume it was the mainline collection.

      • Ahot June 21, 2011 at 16:13 #

        So true! I have a feeling this will surpass Lanvin judging by this stunning dress. I find myself analysing every sketch in that Youtube video. lol.
        It might be the best collabo ever done by H&M. EVER. I honestly don’t know how they are going to top this.

        • Anamika June 21, 2011 at 19:32 #

          I wish ya’all luck with this big commercial publicity and how they create “The Buzz”
          But please don’t mix up that dress that had on La Donatella which was made in the “ateliers” of Versace…specially tailor-fit for her…..nawh all’you wouldn’t get that royale treatement.

  17. Cara June 21, 2011 at 13:14 #

    whyyyyy is there no store in Australia!

    • Ahot June 21, 2011 at 16:15 #

      Time to plan some vacay… :)

  18. CreoleLady June 21, 2011 at 13:40 #

    Ok, everyone simply must let the rest of us know which pieces you are able to score when the time comes. Good luck!

  19. robbie June 21, 2011 at 14:27 #

    OH. MY. GOD! i literally just woke up (i know lazy haha) and this just put a huge smile on my face! i want one of those suits *dies* best hit the gym big time and tone up.

  20. Amaka June 21, 2011 at 15:58 #

    Shaking and Crying rn..best news ever!!

  21. maria June 21, 2011 at 16:15 #

    i think it’s exciting but it will be murder on the high street. I can already imaging the fights in the store….

    • Fashion Critic June 21, 2011 at 17:23 #

      I’m sure they will keep the same shopping system as the Lanvin for H&M launch

  22. cashawna June 21, 2011 at 16:53 #

    omg yes i so freakin excited yesss thank god i live in new york so i know they going to have it in the stores here but i’m dreading waiting on the line with all those people i love versace and now i can actually afford something on my college girl budget

  23. LOLA June 21, 2011 at 16:55 #

    I Love Versace but for me, It’s the epithome of LUXURY. Versace is a Loud Luxury and nox, an H&M collection?
    I will certainly love the clothes but the idea….i’m just confused!

    DONATELLA IS HOT!!!!WORK THAT

  24. Luci June 21, 2011 at 17:39 #

    I think its awesome
    But the bummer of these designer lines is that they sell out super fast so people that can’t be bothered to go to the shop like 2 hours before the store opens (like me :P) will never get the chance to get the cutter outfits :(

    • kirsty June 21, 2011 at 19:49 #

      I agree, these announcements just kind of make me depressed because as much as I may LOVE the pieces, I know I have no chance at getting my hands on them unless i want to pay the ridiculously marked up price on Ebay.

  25. marco June 21, 2011 at 19:10 #

    finally menswear *__*

  26. justme June 21, 2011 at 19:47 #

    I sent my sister with my list for the Lanvin collection so this time, it’s going to be my turn.
    Oh boy, somebody pray for me!

  27. N June 21, 2011 at 20:11 #

    YES!!!!

  28. Tania June 21, 2011 at 22:00 #

    OMG! I am so excited FC.

  29. Thomas Monks June 21, 2011 at 22:16 #

    I CANT WAIT there is an H&M in orlando and i will be driving 3hrs to go to this sale omg and FC did I seea red version of the black dress Mila Kunis just wore on the sketch wall! DIEING RIGHT NOW!!!

  30. Alexandra June 21, 2011 at 23:04 #

    oooohhh! that sounds so good!

    to bad i wouldn’t be able to afford it nevertheless… lanvin for h&m dresses in Poland cost almost two times more than my rent:(

  31. Ayesha June 22, 2011 at 05:29 #

    omg!!WOW!!

  32. perfumeorpoison June 22, 2011 at 09:58 #

    i love it! and i’d suggest putting donatella in bdotw poll?

  33. allie June 22, 2011 at 12:24 #

    I love this dress

  34. Lucía June 22, 2011 at 13:21 #

    I am really excited about this collection, I hope I’m not disappointed :)

  35. Emi June 22, 2011 at 14:53 #

    I’m so upset… HM sells these collections only in one store in Italy , and doesn’t sell on-line, so I won’t be able to buy anything. Her dress is beautiful, even if I agree with the one who wrote that came out from Versace atelier just for her, not from one of HM’s factories.
