Versace for H&M: thoughts and favorite pieces

Versace for H&M: thoughts and favorite piecesThere are a few of you who asked me to make a post on the Versace for H&M collection. As you might know, H&M has had cooperations with different designers several years in a row now. Last year I got a couple of things from Lanvin for H&M. Versace for H&M will hit stores November 17th 2011.
However, I don’t think I will be cuing for this release. There are some nice pieces there, but I will be surprised if it will have much success in Sweden. To me, the whole collection screams of Italy and there’s very little Nordic style about it.
Although, I might get something anyway if I like it in person. Here I picked out some of the pieces I liked.


Do you like any pieces from this collection?

    Yes! That leather dress would look great on you!

  2. Karen says:

    I did not know about this. Thanks for sharing 🙂 I love the blue dress, will def check it out!

  3. I’m tempted by the amazingly trashy jewellery! Jealous you managed to get that orange dress from the Lanvin collection too 🙂 x

  4. Sarah says:

    I heard that leather dress is the most expensive piece! I think i like 2 dresses from this collection, but not in a particular way: the black and the yellow backless ones.

    But still…. I donno if I’m going to buy them.

    The best peice in my opinion, is the black leather dress. The rest is so, so…

    • Antonia says:

      I like it too, Ilona! Although, that kind of dress really needs to fit perfectly to look good. And I can see from here that it might be a problem for me.

      Ok sioreusly you are the luckiest person I know. I don’t know anyone else who’s boyfriend would go to a store to shop for them, much less on a crazy day like that. He is officially the perfect boyfriend. I am curious to see now how this collection will do.

    I didn’t even know H&M were doing a new designer collaboration this year. Interesting, but not as interesting as the Lanvin or Jimmy Choo collab.

    • Antonia says:

      I agree, Karen! I liked the Lanvin one, but the Jimmi Choo wasn’t really my style, even though it was nice. Did you get anything?

      • Karen says:

        I didn’t for either of the collections. They were only in Antwerp and I lived two hours away by train. This year however I’ll try to go take a look as I’m studying in Antwerp now.
        Still sorry about the Choo’s though… There was one pair that I really wanted.

        • Antonia says:

          Oh, don’t be sorry, Karen! Hopefully, one day you’ll be getting a pair of Jimmi Choo’s as in Jimmi Choo, and not “for H&M” ones:)
          I hear that Antwerp is beautiful, lucky you!

    When I previewed the collection, I was surprised at how many pieces I liked bit I am not sure I’m going to rush into the store for this line. I really loved their Jimmy Choo and Lanvin collections.

    • Antonia says:

      No, I’m not rushing either. Even though I (surprisingly) really like the yellow/leopard pieces:) Did you get anything from the previous collaborations?

      • Araceli Estrada says:

        I liked the yellow leopard pieces too and I am not one for a lot of print but for some reason those pieces I liked. I tried to get items from the previous collections but by the time I got through the masses and into the store I either didn’t find my size or the pieces I wanted were sold out. Just my luck 🙁 . It gets really crazy here to shop these collections. You have to get a bracelet to shop a certain section in the store and you only get 15 minutes or so to shop that section. How about you?

        • Antonia says:

          It’s the same here! The masses are absolutely crazy! Luckily, last year it was Hannes who got me the pieces I wanted (he had a list of stuff with him). But this year, I don’t think I’ll going!

          • Araceli Estrada says:

            Ok seriously you are the luckiest person I know. I don’t know anyone else who’s boyfriend would go to a store to shop for them, much less on a crazy day like that. He is officially the perfect boyfriend. I am curious to see now how this collection will do.

  8. Annelien says:

    I also got a dress from Lanvin but Versace.. I don’t know. And only two stores pretty far away from me are going to sell the items so I guess I’m gonna pass..

  9. Arantxa says:

    I knew about Versace collection but had not seen anything. Personally I don´t like this clothes, is also true that Versace I never liked too much. If I have opportunity to see any clothes in person maybe I change my opinion, for example, black and pink dress that you have selected, but nothing else catches my attention. I am much more classical …
