H&M has announced its latest collaborator and its none other than Italian fashion house Versace. Donatella Versace will launch H&M menswear, womenswear and homeware which will go on sale on November 17 – shortly followed by a pre-spring collection that will be available online from January 19.
For this special collection, Donatella will raid the Versace archives for inspiration and direction.
“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,” said Margareta van den Bosch, creative advisor at H&M – who has masterminded collaborations with Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Comme des Garcons and Jimmy Choo in the past. “Donatella Versace is sharing with us iconic designs from the archives. This is such a celebratory collaboration and is perfect for the party season.”
