YES – you have read the headline correctly.  One of the most iconic Italian fashion houses will collaborate with the swedish mega retailer H&M to design a Fall collection.  Versace was founded in 1978 by Gianni Versace.  His creative vision and talent for design made the House of Versace a top couture brand worldwide.  Donatella Versace, the Creative Director for the brand has continued to evolve the label and will reference the archives to interpret and create collections for women, men and home.

The collection will hit about 300 stores worldwide on November 19th, 2011. The womenswear collection will be dominated by dresses that express the spirit of the season, featuring studded leather, silk and colorful prints, and accessories including high heels and costume jewelry. The men’s collection will focus on sharp tailoring, including the perfect tuxedo, as well as belts and jewelry for men. For the first time in a designer collaboration at H&M, the collection will include homeware pieces including pillows and bedspread.

A pre-Spring collection for H&M will be available online exclusive to countries with online sales starting on January 19th, 2012.

I am thrilled to be collaborating with H&M and to have the opportunity of reaching their wide audience. The collection will be quintessential Versace, perfect for H&M and Versace fans everywhere,” says Donatella Versace.

A press preview was held and here is a sneak peek at a few pieces that will be included in the collection.  Mark your calendar now as I am sure this collection will sell out as quickly as some of the former collaborations, the most recent being Lanvin.
