Versace for H&M

Here we go with another designer collaboration!

Although I was pretty excited to hear the new of the Jason Wu/Target collab, I am really truly over the moon stoked about the announcement of Versace coming to H&M!

I have been a fan of H&M for several years now - my first shopping experience in New York City while visiting family, then finding them in Orlando while visiting family (hmm, I see a pattern here...family visits = H&M shopping trips!) and then the retailer made it's way to South Florida (although it's still an hour drive to get there).
Versace, on the other hand, has never been in my grasp. It's just not in my budget. Well come November 17th, the Italian fashion house will be joining forces with H&M combining fabulous style with a much more affordable price tag. 

Here are some peeks at some of my favorite looks from the collection. Hopefully it doesn't wipe out as quickly as other collabs (I'm talking about you Missoni!)

The line also consists of a few handbags, jewelry and other accessories as well as a men's collection. I can't imagine that I could get my husband into their clothing (it isn't really his style, psh) but then maybe that means more money for me to spend??

Fingers crossed, I may find myself being able to say "Oh that thing? It's Versace."

Are you excited to see Versace at H&M??

I am superexcited about this collaboration! Every major designer who has worked with H&M..I have missed it. I want that black dress with the two banded sleeve...or that skirt.

There's so many collabs these days, that I can hardly keep them straight! I find alot of them to be overrated.. like Missoni for Target :/ Bleh!

But, this one - I am looking forward to!

Lindsey said...

Um, obsessed with the first two items! How exciting!!
Great blog BTW- Following!

Best, Lindsey

@Bravoe Runway - I too have missed many collabs; this debuts on a Thursday so I fear by the time I make it to the store over that weekend, things will be gone. Hopefully I can just order online to play it safe!

@Marissa - I wasn't impressed with Missoni for Target either. There were a few pieces I liked but not enough to hit the store right away...good thing, because I would have missed out anyway!

@Lindsey - Thanks so much! I am glad you like it & happy to meet a new follower :)

Jules said...

I'm beyond excited about this. I actually have it on my calander. I'm hoping to not be working yet so I can be at H&M when they open the doors that day! ;)

Shoes and Jules

Yes - I also have my eyes on this collaboration but like many other designer collections at H&M I never can get my hands on anything. Lets hope for the best this time around.

Erica said...

@Jules - You might have to be my shopper that day ;)

@Thu - Fingers crossed! :)

BTW I can't figure out how to respond to your comment on my blog so I'll do it here :) Unfortunatlely my green NW shoes are from 2 seasons ago.

Erica said...

The pink dress is AMAZING.
