PARIS — Been dying to snap up Anna Dello Russo’s studded leather Versace for H&M dress?
It can be yours for $299 when the collection launches in select countries on Nov. 17, according to the look book and price list the Swedish fast-fashion retailer releases today.
Alongside a $299 leather jacket, the dress is the most expensive item in the lineup, which also runs more democratic with costume jewelry starting at $19.95, in addition to colorful printed silk scarves and leggings, each priced $29.95.
The designer collection, which includes home furnishings for the first time, will be available in some 300 stores worldwide and online in select countries. It is set to launch in the U.S. on Nov. 19.
“The collection for H&M is the essence of Versace,” stated Donatella Versace. “For the collaboration we’ve brought back from the archives, as well as from more recent collections, some of the icons of Versace, such as the bright prints, the Greek key and daring cuts. I can’t wait to see how H&M’s wide audience will make these pieces their own.”
H&M is expected to unveil the collection at a launch event in New York on Nov. 8 that will include a fashion show, a Versace for H&M boutique and an after party.

In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
