Fashion News | Versace is the next designer to collaborate with H&M on a capsule collection

The Versace clan is on a role. Allegra Versace has taken up an active role with the brand, Lady Gaga has signed a contract to wear Versace exclusively for the next two months, Donatella has found her design stride and now the luxury Italian brand is the next label to collaborate with H&M on a capsule collection.

The collection will hit select H&M stores on Nov. 17 and word has it Ms. Versace will be drawing from the Versace archives. Donatella previewed a look from the collection  on Monday when she took her walk-out at the spring 2012 menswear show wearing one of the Versace for H&M dresses―a black leather studded number. The collection will have about 40 pieces for women, 20 for men and accessories for both. “As a designer I usually look to the future, I don’t look to the past,” said Donatella. “But with this collection…I’m going to use iconic Versace pieces of iconic Versace moments, which are not exactly only the past but also the present.”

In the video below Donatella and H&M’s creative director Margareta van den Bosch talk about the collection and give us a sneak peek of some of the pieces, which is heavy on leather, gold studs, chain mail, sequins, baroque prints and multicoloured animal print.

I’m excited to see what Donatella comes up with for her capsule collection for H&M. It seems that she has hit her stride and she has cranked out wearable collection after wearable collection. Let’s hope she brings back some of those classic, eye-catching Versace designs.
