I can’t describe in words, how elated I am to hear about this amazing collection which is soon to be. After H&M and Lanvin were the biggest hit of last season, I can’t wait to see what amazing designs Donatella and the guys at Versace will whip up in collaborting with H&M. Yesterday at the Versace Menswear show in Milan, Donatella walked out in one of the exquisite dresses from the collection, which was made of leather and was embellished with sequins and studs. The collection which will consist of 40 looks for women and 20 looks for men, will basically be a story of Versace’s iconic designs from both the past and the present. Like I did with the Lanvin collaboration, I think I will fall in love with every male piece and want to buy them all.
Although we are all excited to see what will become of this collection which is to launch later this year, the collaboration comes as quite a shocker since back in 2008 Donatella stated that she would never do a diffusion line since it would somehow confuse the brand. However I guess Donatella had a change of heart and decided to collaborate with the swedish mega-brand. Ending on a great note, Donatella also said “This is such a celebratory collaboration and is perfect for the party season.”
