Versace for H&M

Versace for H&M

Earlier today it was announced that Versace will team up with H&M for a limited-edition 'Iconic Collection' of women's and men's fashion as well as homeware due out in fall 2011.

Vogue UK has a sneak peek at some of the looks, including a cream shift dress with gold studded embellishment, a leather jacket featuring studded embellishment, a slinky black halter dress, a brightly-colored belted floral dress and a men's black suit and metallic top.

While I'm not a Versace girl per se, I do have a soft spot in my heart for Donatella (I really admire what she's done since her brother's passing) - and I'm kinda loving all the looks I've seen so far.

Versace for H&M will go on sale on November 17 followed by a pre-spring collection that will be available online from January 19.

I love Rachel Roy, I had the pleasure of meeting her once at the press launch for her affordable line Rachel Rachel Roy (sold exclusively at Macy's) and she was so genuine and kind in person. Not to mention drop-dead gorgeous! Love that she does these charitable campaigns that make it easy for all of us fashion lovers to give back.
