Versace x H&M

(A little behind the scenes footage of the making for the new A/W 11' Versace x H&M)

It was announced yesterday that the next designer duo for mass retailer H&M will be Versace. There will be a presentation for women, men, and home. About 40 women's pieces and 20 for men! I'm so excited to see the first leaks of what's to come. I basically freaked when I heard the news. As I was skimming over the article, I noticed very important details about the future launch. They've promised it to be flamboyant and extravagant to represent Versace for what it really is. Donatella herself commented that she took inspiration for the collection from the Versace Home archives of prints and silhouettes. ( I'm automatically remembering the interview with AJ Mukumal in his apt in NYC with that utterly fabulous Versace chaise lounge. It was seriously amazing...) Those two words describe me perfectly. That's basically me in a nutshell.. This is a match made in heaven. Watch the video and listen to miss V herself! She carries herself exactly as I would expect her to! I'm loving this video!

She mentioned she is trying to keep everything hush hush because she loves surprises! So we will just have to anticipate for the arrival! She closed the Resort 12' menswear show in Milan the other day wearing one of the dresses from the new collab made of leather and gold studs! This is just the first of many i'm sure i'm going to love! I'll definitely be saving the extra pennies from now on to go towards this!

Speaking of the Italian fashion house, one of my must have item's for summer/fall is a pair of the cat eye sunglasses from the new J by January Jones for Versace line coming out this summer. Definitely my staple for the autumn season!
