DONATELLA VERSACE: HER FAVOURITE VERSACE FOR H&M LOOKS
The VERSACE FOR H&M COLLECTION hits stores in just two weeks. With excitement building, designer DONATELLA VERSACE is again speaking out about the line.
In an interview with STYLE.COM/PRINT, the couturier said: “It is amazing how H&M has taken these icons of Versace to make the pieces in this collection.”
One dress that “will always be so special” to DONATELLA is the black leather studded frock (above and below, right).
“It was the dress I wore to take my bow at the Versace menswear show this summer, the day before we announced our collaboration with H&M to the world,” she recalled.
“It was so exciting. Everybody was saying how good I looked and nobody knew it was H&M!”
Another favourite is a printed dress and leggings combo (below, centre) with a Techno Japan print.
“We have used it in different colours and on different designs so that it can be worn in many contrasting ways,” DONATELLA explained.
“We had so much fun designing the print pieces for the collection (below, left), which can be worn individually or mixed and matched as wild as you dare.”
Additional highlights include a metal mesh mini and a darling black dress, but there is one item DONATELLA promises you won’t find in the collection: flat shoes.
“There are only high heels,” she shared.
“I never wear flats. Ever.”
