Yall rock Versace & yall went out and bought it
I rock Versace & you know I ain't pay for it!
Come fall you will be able to afford Versace and you wont need to give an arm or a leg to do so. Donatella Versace is the latest designer to collaborate with popular retailer (& my personal fav) H&M for a collection debuting later this year.
The collection is set to go on sale November 17, 2011 in about 300 H&M stores - I'm sure it will sell out in no time. Another collection - pre spring - will debut January 19, 2012.
The collection will include the fashion house's signature party dresses, filled with studded embroidery & bold prints. Versace will also feature designs for men as well as home decor pieces, including bedspreads & pillows.
Previous high-end designers who collaborated with H&M include Lanvin, Karl Lagerfield, Stella McCarthey, Jimmy Choo, & Comme de Garcons.
Yall know I absolutely love H&M but I'm not a fan of their collaborated lines. I'm not really a designer junkie....sure I love signature & classic designer pieces but I wouldn't spend my last on the latest designer trends - Herve dresses & Christian Louboutins. In general I don't follow trends so these treads wont be of any use to me, I rather give my spot in line to someone who appreciates these items more.
To be honest I think the value of the designs depreciate when you collab with lower-end retailers, i.e Target, JC Penny's, Marshalls, etc....not knocking any of these retailers or the people who shop there, I'm just saying. I wish some people would focus more on being an individual instead of being a "label whore" - trying to keep up with the Jones', follow trends, and spend your last just to say that you have a Versace dress is frivolous and shallow, but who am I to judge?
Anywho, I commend H&M once again for being able to expand their brand and offer their shoppers a once in a lifetime experience....
