H&M's Margareta van den Bosch & Donatella Versace
H&M's autumn 2011 designer collaboration will be with Versace.
According to Margareta van den Bosch, creative advisor at H&M, “Versace is one of the most important brands of recent times, and their collection for H&M will be glamorous and flamboyant, everything Versace stands for. Donatella Versace is sharing with us iconic designs from the archives. This is such a celebratory collaboration and is perfect for the party season”.
Designed by its creative director Donatella Versace, the collection is a reinterpretation of classic Versace designs. The womenswear collection will be dominated by dresses featuring studded leather, silk and colorful prints, with accessories including high heels and costume jewellery.
There will be a men's collection too, which will focus on sharp tailoring, including the perfect tuxedo, as well as belts and jewellery.
The collection will also include selected pieces for the home.
Versace x H&M will be available from 17 November in around 300 stores worldwide, as well as on-line. In addition, Donatella Versace has also designed a pre-spring collection for H&M which will be exclusively available in countries with H&M on-line sales from January 19.
