Yet another H&M designer collaboration is upon us, and this one promises to be major: Versace for H&M.
The fall 2011 collection is designed by creative director Donatella Versace, and according the press release published Tuesday, promises to “recall the vibrant heritage of the brand, complete with leather, prints, color and exuberance in exclusive materials at fantastic H&M prices.
Donatella gushed in the same press release, “I am thrilled to be collaborating with H&M and to have the opportunity of reaching their wide audience. The collection will be quintessential Versace, perfect for H&M and Versace fans everywhere.”
Unlike other designer collaborations (we’re looking at you, Missoni for Target), sneak peeks of the Versace for H&M collaboration are already available…and they look fabulous. Expect to see fashionable young ladies camping out on the sidewalks to get a taste of these not-so-cheap thrills when they hit select US stores November 19.
Check out the video below to see what Donatella has planned for this fall!
H&M – Jimmy Choo for H&M Launch. Stars turned out en masse to the hills to toast the new line, and lucky for us, H&M taped the whole thing, including behind-the-scenes scoop on the party set up and exclusive celeb interviews.
Images of Jimmy Choo’s collection for H&M have gradually been leaking onto the Internet, and a whole slew of new ones just hit. The collection includes men’s and women’s clothes, shoes, bags, and accessories. New images of ladies’ offerings reveal more than one suede minidress, zebra-print stilettos and flats, and at least one jumpsuit. Check them out in the slideshow, and also get a peek at a couple of the men’s shoes and jackets.
H&M’s posted a “How to Shop” section on their website, below are the details.
What do I do if I arrive before opening hours?
If there is a line, please wait in line and H&M store staff will inform you how to shop.
How does the queing system work?
The first 160 people in line will receive a bracelet; on the bracelet you will be given a specific time for shopping in our designated area. The bracelets are only needed for the women’s shoes, bags and accessories. Customers shopping the men’s collection or the women’s garments will not require a bracelet.
When your time has come, we will let you into the designated area to shop. Our goal is to create a better shopping experience for all of our customers.
If you are not one of the 160 first in line, you will of course have the opportunity to shop from the rest of collection or within H&M. After about two hours we will also open up the designated area for all of our customers.
To make sure as many customers as possible are able to buy from the Jimmy Choo for H&M collection, we have a limitation. Every customer can buy the whole collection but with a limitation of buying maximum one per product, i.e. not more than one size (shoes/garments) or piece (accessories) per product per customer. The limitation covers the whole Jimmy Choo for H&M Collection. Your place in line does not guarantee any items from the Jimmy Choo for H&M collection.
And there you have it.
At least it sounds somewhat organized and bloodshed will be kept to a minimum. We hope.
