fashionisTas are expected to flock to the high street next week as luxury brand Versace releases its cheapest range to date in H&M.
However, the Herald can reveal that Irish bargain-hunters are better off going up to the North.
The cheap-chic designer collection will cost more up to 38pc more in Dublin than in Belfast.
While the cheapest items cost around the same price in both countries -- €19.95 for a simple chain necklace with a trademark medusa and sword pendant in Dublin and £14.99 (nearly €18) in Belfast -- there is a big difference on expensive pieces.
The most expensive item on the list, a black leather jacket with metallic studs for men, would only set you back £199.99 in the UK (approximately €234), but it costs €299 here, a €65 difference.
A black Versace suit blazer costs €129 in the Republic but just £79.99 (nearly €94) in Northern Ireland.
The blazer is part of a black and white suit available in both countries but a hot pink version of the suit -- including blazer, shirt, trousers and pink shoes -- will not be sold here.
Meanwhile, silk cocktail dresses with metallic studs in yellow and pink retail at €179 in the Republic but shoppers in the North can grab them for just £129 (around €151).
Highlights of the collection include an elegant black leather studded dress, which costs €249 in Dublin's South King Street store, but only £179.99 (€211) in London.
A spokesperson for H&M told the Herald that several items of the collection would not be available in Ireland, notably any homewear.
A sales assistant at the Dundrum store told the Herald that shoppers would have to queue up early.
She explained that a system of wristbands would be in place to prevent any fighting among shoppers.
The bands will allow the first 160 customers to go in groups of 20 to a VIP area where they will be given 10 minutes to pick items.
