Coming this fall Versace will add its name to a long list of designers who have collaborated with the Swedish fast-fashion chain. The looks will appear in 300 H&M stores beginning November 19th. When speaking about the collection, Donatella Versace said that “The collection will be quintessential Versace” ( dailyfrontrow.com). The anticipated collection will include menswear and womenswear featuring bold prints, leather, silk, and other classic touches of Versace.
Not only is she collaborating with the brand, but she is also designing a pre-spring line available January 19th, 2012 on H&M e-commerce sites. Donatella will also be the first designer to feature bedding and home decor. The in-store collection will also feature shoes and costume jewelry for women, along with jewelry and belts for men. Of the collection, H&M creative advisor Margareta van den Bosch said “Versace is sharing with us iconic designs from the archives. This is such a celebratory collaboration”(dailyfrontrow.com). Only one question remains…how many months until November?
Vogue gave us a first look into Tom Ford’s Spring/Summer 2011 womenswear collection back in November 2010. Now comes out a video of the whole fashion show, which was only open to a select few editors and fabulous fashion friends of his.

Lanvin is the newest high-end fashion designer to partner with H&M. The Lanvin line will consist of menswear and womenswear, and will be unveiled on Nov. 20 in North America and on Nov. 23 everywhere else H&M is located.
This partnership will create a larger client base for Lanvin since their clothes will be sold at a much cheaper price in an everyday store. Lanvin is not the only designer in recent history to form a partnership with H&M in order to widen their client base; previous designers consist of Karl Lagerfeld and Stella McCartney.
H&M will preview the new Lanvin line on November 1 on hm.com. Read the full article from The Huffington Post.
