Versace’s 2012 Cruise Collection for H&M;

Following on from the inaugural Versace for H&M collection launched on 17 November 2011, Donatella Versace has created a new cruise collection that will be available from 19 January 2012 as an H&M online exclusive.

The women’s collection is light and feminine, with berries and butterflies print on dresses, tops, negligées, dressing gowns, and a silk cashmere cardigan. It also includes white jeans, bikinis, and accessories such as charm bracelets, print bags, ballet flats and high heels. For men, the focus is on fashion classics like a leather detail wool blazer, jeans, denim shirts, and pleat-front shorts in cotton or denim.

As expected of Versace, the overall look is colourful and includes bright prints and the trademark Greek key. After examining the collection, The Style Examiner believes that the stylish bright blue cardigan will be the most coveted item.
