Last night Versace held a catwalk show for the launch of its collection at H&M.
As you can see from the photos, Donatella Versace has designed a collection that is quintessential of the Versace brand. From silk miniskirts to garish florals in flamboyant colours.
Perhaps I will be hung by my Wolford tights when I say that I really expected more from the collection. H&M guest collections are always held in high esteem (bar Madonna's travesty), and I don't think that this has lived up to expectation.
In my opinion the collection is far too cheap looking, especially the fringe dresses and sequin pieces. It provides the kind of clothes that just simply don't translate to the high street. I think that Donatella has fundamentally forgotten that designing for a high-end catwalk show and the high street are two very different concepts.
