Yesterday marked the launch party for the Versace collection for H&M. The party hosted many a celebrity along with the who's who of fashion. I saw Coco Rocha (my most fave Canadian model), posting pics to her instagram of the runway show last night.
The outfits bring together different styles from the Versace archive. The long awaited collection features iconic pieces for woman such as draped metal mesh dresses, silk crepe dresses with gold buttons, multi colours panel print dresses, and the classic Versace leather jacket. For men, there are sharp suits, printed sweaters, print shirts, and studded leather jackets and trousers.
Over all, I have to say that I love how H&M is pairing with fashion houses to create exlusive collections that are affordable for the everyday consumer. I am sure we have all wanted to own something from Versace and now is our chance, starting Nov 19th!
I look forward to the day where they pair up with GUCCI!
