Donatella Versace Launching Collabo With H&M on November 17th
I remember back in the days of “good ole” hip-hop, all you heard Biggie Smalls and Lil’ Kim rapping about were “Versace this, and Versace that”. I can’t lie, I jumped on the bandwagon. I was always into fashion but hip-hop brought out my knowledge and love for “designer” items. One of my faves back then was Gianni Versace. I remember in my “not so frugal” days dropping hundreds on a pair of shades by him. I was so distraught when he was murdered that you would have thought I knew him personally.
Well the Versace house has remained on top ever since then thanks to Gianni’s sister, Donatella. Even more sentimental now that Donnatella has decided to launch a more affordable collection thru top retail chain, H&M in honor of her brother Gianni. Versace follows in the footsteps of Stella McCartney, Roberto Cavalli and Lanvin in collaborating with H&M. According to H&M creative advisor Margareta Van Den Bosch, the collection, which is comprised of 40 pieces for women and 20 for men as well as accessories, will look back at iconic pieces from the brand dating back to the ’80s. Versace for H&M launches on November 17 in the UK and on November 19 in the U.S
