Versace Strikes Again

Versace SS12 Cruise Collection for H&MYou may remember the stir Donatella Versace’s collection for H&M caused just a few weeks ago when devoted, ahem, crazy, shoppers queued for hours to get their hands on some of the designers cut price offerings. Well, are you ready for some more?


The cruise collection is the second and final collection for H&M and this time customers can delight in some shopping from the comfort of their own home as the line will only be available online for those in the UK,Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Norway and Holland – so frenzied fingers at the ready!


If you weren’t feeling the bold and brash of the last collection then this next one may be for you. Packed with pastel colours, playful
prints and more summery hues, it boasts a wide range of goodies with everything from handbags to shoes and belts to lingerie.


Donatella said: “After celebrating the Versace heritage with the iconic collection for H&M, it’s so exciting to start 2012 with something completely new.”


“This cruise collection is full of pretty, elegant pieces for women and strong new staples for men, all with a fresh feeling for a new year. It has been such a pleasure working with H&M, I am thrilled to be collaborating with them one more time for this online exclusive collection.”


The high street giant are on a roll with guest designers aplenty with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo collection hitting stores yesterday and two designer collaborations scheduled for the new year.


For those mourning the loss of the final Versace collection, Marni is set to be the next label to follow in the footsteps of Versace. Launching a spring collection in March, the Italian label’s founder Consuelo Castiglioni’s line, directed by Sophia Coppola will arrive in stores worldwide – including online – on 8 March.


The Versace cruise collection for H&M debuts online on January 19 2012.
