Versace For H&M: Before You Place That eBay Bid, Read This
This morning Elle UK is reporting that H&M is "overwhelmed" by the demand for the Versace for H&M collection, after the collab shut their website down on Thursday, and sold out in China after only 30 minutes. A spokesperson for the brand revealed what pieces are already sold out -- aka what you need to be bidding for on eBay. (more…)
Versace For H&M Is Already On eBay (A Whole Week Before The Collection Hits Stores)
What happened to eBay being a place to sell old stuff? Our friends over at The Cut tipped is off to the curious fact that nearly 50 Versace for H&M items are now available on eBay, despite the fact that the collection doesn't hit stores until a week from today. Obviously, given the anticipation for the line (combined with the fact that you can't yet get it in stores), the prices are far higher than H&M's price points. (more…)
PHOTOS: The Complete, 52-Piece Versace For H&M Collection
Last night, the Versace for H&M collection debuted in New York with a star-studded runway show, topped off with a performance by Prince. If you're wondering whether the 52-piece collection is worth all the bells and whistles -- see below. We've got every last look for you to fawn over: (more…)
Two Versace For H&M Pieces Cost $299 (I.e. $80 More Than Real Versace Sunglasses)
Remember that gorgeous Versace for H&M dress that Anna Dello Russo was seen wearing during Paris Fashion Week? Well, turns out it will retail at H&M stores for more than $300 after tax. The leather jacket at left will also retail for a whopping $299. Yes - we get it - it's real leather designed by Versace so it obviously comes with a price, but really, almost $300? That's how much I expect to spend at H&M on my whole fall wardrobe AND sparkly New Years Eve dress. WWD tried to quell our shock by telling us the lowest price point was $19.95---for a piece of their costume jewelry. Call me a cheapskate, but this still seems weirdly high (again, this is coming from a girl who's used to spending $3.99 on a 6-pack pair of studs). At the end of the day, obviously I'll still be buying some Versace for H&M when it debuts in select countries November 17th and in the U.S. on the 19th (womp womp), but I'll just start clearing space in my closet for fewer items than I thought. But WAIT---there's one more secret about the line! We'll tell you what it is after the jump: (more…)
Three More Versace For H&M Photos Have Been Leaked
With only a month to go until Versace for H&M is unleashed on the world, (November 17, peeps!) there are still a few photos floating around of the line. These new Versace for H&M photos (at right) courtesy are proving the line will be a little more confusing than we originally thought. While we were initially picturing lots of sequin bodycon mini dresses, we didn't quite expect these Palm Beach-worthy prints. Guess it's all in how you wear it, though. What do you think so far?

Leave It To Anna Dello Russo To Wear Versace For H&M Nearly 2 Months Before It’s In Stores
Anna Dello Russo in Versace for H&M at the Balmain fashion show Somehow, only people like Anna Dello Russo are able to wear H&M to a Balmain fashion show and get away with it. But Dello Russo's studded body-con dress wasn't just any old H&M number---it is actually a piece from the Versace for H&M line, which doesn't début until late next month. Read: the Vogue Japan Editor At Large got her hands on the line really early, considering we just saw the first photo from the collection a few weeks ago. Ah, it pays to be connected, successful, and Italian, doesn't it? Read up on all of our Versace for H&M news or check out who Target just announced as their next designer...

Holy collaboration news! On the heels of the Missoni for Target announcement (coming in September), H&M's really stepping up their game: Versace will be the next designer to create a line for H&M!
