Published 20/10/2011 | 14:59
H&M's latest 'designer collection' is due to go on sale on 17th November, and the images have just been released.
Dominated by colour, print and cut, Versace's creative director Donatella Versace has gone back to the archives to bring some Versace classics to a whole new audience.
Iconic dresses are the focus of the women’s collection, while menswear is centered on sharp tailoring.
Also for the first time an H&M designer collaboration will include homeware pieces, reflecting Versace’s influential home designs.
All collections will be available in around 300 stores worldwide, as well as on-line, from 17th November.
“The collection for H&M is the essence of Versace. For the collaboration we’ve brought back from the archives, as well as from more recent collections, some of the icons of Versace, such as the bright prints, the Greek key and daring cuts. I can’t wait to see how H&M’s wide audience will make these pieces their own” said Donatella Versace.
Versace has revisited some of its most famous prints, which for women are used on pieces such as dresses, short pleat skirts, velvet bomber jackets, leggings and jeans.
Meanwhile the importance of leather for Versace is reflected in leather jackets that come decorated with gold studs and zips.
Accessories include a high-heeled laced boot and a studded suede high-heeled sandal, along with studded leather bags as well as velvet bags covered with the Miami palm print.
