H&M recently announced its fall 2011 designer collaboration will be with legendary Italian fashion label Versace.
Designed by Versace creative director Donatella Versace, the exclusive collection will include lines for both men and women and will recall the vibrant heritage of the brand. The women's collection will be dominated by dresses featuring studded leather, silk and colorful prints, along with accessories including high heels and costume jewelry, each at an affordable price point.
"I am thrilled to be collaborating with H&M and to have the opportunity of reaching their wide audience. The collection will be quintessential Versace, perfect for H&M and Versace fans everywhere," says Donatella Versace.
Versace is the latest couture house to collaborate with H&M on an exclusive designer collection (past partnerships include Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Comme des Garçons, Roberto Cavalli, Jimmy Choo and, most recently, Lanvin).
The Versace for H&M collection will be available in about 300 select H&M stores worldwide as of November 19, 2011. Donatella Versace has also designed a pre-spring collection for H&M which will be exclusively available in countries with online sales beginning January 19.
