Earlier today I posted a feature on the Versace for H&M men’s lookbook, but with the women’s collection still to be posted, here it is. Abbey Lee Kershaw was photographed by Kacper Kasprzyk and I must say looks absolutely fabulous. As with the men’s collection there are similarities to a regular Versace collection but this time Donatella has gone into the vaults to bring us some classic designs from years gone by. With multi-colour dressed, sequins, metallic dresses in either gold or silver, or dresses with embellished in studs.
“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.” Donatella Versace.
“Versace’s collection for H&M is a moment in fashion. It is full of strong pieces that stand out, with colours, prints and cuts that are clean and precise. The women’s collection is flattering and full of dresses, while the men’s collection is very sophisticated. When I think about Versace I think of iconic items. With this collection for H&M we’ve got the essence of Versace.” Margareta van den Bosch, creative advisor at H&M
The women’s collection will be released November 19th in about 300 stores worldwide with a pre-spring collection being released exclusivley in countries with H&M on-line sales from January 19, 2012.
What do you think of the collection? Will you be buying anything?
