Versace x H&M

i have to admit that up until i saw a TV special on Versace -- its brand, how their company was built and the amazing siblings who ran the fashion label, i didn't have much appreciation for it. i had this unconscious bitterness over designer clothing which is beyond my reach and it took me a while to realize that although the actual clothing is beyond my financial reach, it shouldn't hinder me from appreciating the art and work that was put into the creation of the designs. to be a renowned designer takes a massive amount of brilliance -- brilliance that is not tapped by just any ordinary being. despite the steep prices, designer clothing are still works of art.

thanks to Lady Gaga who wore a Versace dress on a casual day, Donatella decided to share Versace to the public and collaborate with H&M. when Lady Gaga fans asked where she got her single shoulder shift, a collaboration with H&M was Donatella's way of letting those fans get a taste of the Italian fashion label at a few hundreds (and not in thousands). that leather jacket below can be ours at $299 (still a steep price for the Peso but still affordable compared to the couture line / collection). here are my favorites from the collection:

all images courtesy of -- check out the site for a full coverage of the launch.

my top favorites are the pleated dress with the leather jacket (2nd photo) which was also worn by jessica alba at the launch (here), the purple cutout dress and black chiffon dress on the 5th row -- the black one worn by jennifer hudson at the launch (here). all the lace-up booties caught my heart too, especially the blue ones. simply amazeballs. how about you? what are your favorite/s?

It's good that designer labels are collaborating with mainstream brands and I loved the collab with Lanvin and H&M too. But, it's still way beyond my paycheck. Love the looks in photo number 10 and 12.

H&M = Happy Mart ra man gud ang naa diri. Paets! I can wear H&M when I go thrift hunting.
