H&M Versace Collection:
H&M (Hennes & Mauritz) is a Swedish retail clothing company known for their fast fashion clothing for Women, Men and Children clothing. The company started in 1947 by Erling Persson in Västerås, Sweden. At the time it only sold women clothing and was called Hennes, Swedish for "hers". H&M is known for their fashion forward designs and affordability. They are also know as a company that collaborates with high end designers. Throughout the years they have teamed up with many designers.
H&M's newest team-up is with Versace. And let me say they have some great items. Here are a few that stuck out to me. Some of these designs remind me of Custo Barcelona. Very vibrant colors and very unique patterns. But you know it's Versace by it's unique design.
Here are some of H&M's team-ups:
In 2004- Karl Lagerfeld. The press reported large crowds and that the initial inventories in the larger cities were sold out within an hour!
In 2005- Stella McCartney

In 2007- Madonna, Roberto Cavalli, Kylie Minogue
In 2008- Comme des Garçons
