Two Versace For H&M Pieces Cost $299 (I.e. $80 More Than Real Versace Sunglasses)
October 20, 2011
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:
ALERT: The Versace for H&M Collection will also feature Home Décor! For the first time ever, you can buy your pillows ($29.95 to $39.95) and bedspread ($149) at H&M. We’re crossing our fingers that the Swedish retailer will start to make this a regular thing…
