Anyone betting Tom Ford would design H&M‘s next designer collaboration is going to lose. Word has it that Donatella Versace enjoyed working with H&M so much the first time around that she’s designed a pre-spring collection that will go on sale early next year. And this time, there’ll be no pesky lines or shoving involved.
Women’s Wear Daily reports that Versace’s second (yes, second!) capsule collection for H&M will go on sale online Jan. 19 in countries where the Swedish retailer sells things online. So far that includes Sweden (obviously), the United Kingdom, Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands and Norway.
What about the United States, you ask? H&M promised the USA a fully functioning e-commerce site some time around the end of 2011 or the beginning of 2012. But even if the retailer manages to get its digital act together before mid-Janauary, we wouldn’t hold our breath for this collection to be sold stateside. After all, the US is the world’s biggest online market, and we’d bet H&M won’t produce enough of the second collection to satisfy all of us, plus most of Europe.
Like what you see below? You might want to make a few calls to your long lost cousins in Oslo and Copenhagen and butter them up before the new collection goes online.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
