The new Cruise Collection for Swedish retailers H&M, designed by Italian fashion house Versace, has everything from resort-wear to fruity-print robes, sandals and accessories; the collection has been styled to encapsulate the holiday wardrobe. In addition, it is also meant as an instant style update for the spring season. The new Versace collection follows on the success of the first such collaboration between the Swedes and the Italians, offering summery shades and bold prints.
The women's collection is both light and feminine, with berries and butterfly prints on dresses, tops, negligees, dressing gowns and silk cashmere cardigans. The women can also flaunt white jeans, bikinis and summer accessories like charm bracelets, print bags, ballet flats and high heels.
The gentlemen will be treated to a collection based on fashion classics, like a leather-detailed wool blazer, jeans and denim shirts, alongside pleat-front shirts, either in cotton or denim.
The entire range is scheduled to be released on Jan. 19, and will be available as an H&M online exclusive.
For autumn we have looked back at the Versace archives with the iconic collection for H&M, and now we are looking forward, with a first feeling for the new spring season. As well as holiday pieces, there is also everyday wear, with lots of denim and print, all of it with a spirit that's classically Versace, OK Magazine quoted Margareta van den Bosch, the Creative Advisor at H&M, as saying.
