The Top 10 Versace For H&M Items We Can't Wait to Buy (With Prices)
Versace's recently-revealed collection for H&M has been creating lots of buzz on for its wild, colorful Gianni Versace-esque pieces and equally bold campaign starring model/rocker Abbey Lee Kershaw. All the hooplah is great, but what about the clothes?
While they won't hit stores until November 17, it's never to early to start planning your purchases. With big, crowded (as the collection launch will most likely be) stores like H&M, it can be easy to miss the good stuff. So, we've picked out what we believe are the standout pieces from the collection.
Click through for our favorites, plus their retail price (some may seem a bit pricy for H&M, but that's because they're using high-quality materials like leather and silk):
Missoni for Target doesn't drop until September 13th, but lucky New Yorkers will get a chance to shop the collection--which the internet has been practically drooling over--as soon as September 8th.
Missoni and Target are opening up shop at 1095 Sixth Avenue (at 42nd Street) on Fashion's Night Out. But don't get too excited: The store will only be open for three days, or as long as supplies last--which considering the hype around this collection may not be long--and we're sure all three days will be completely BANANAs.
So, in order to stay sane (and maximize your shopping time) we've done some careful research and come up with the top 10 smartest purchases from the Missoni for Target collection.

As we all know, limited edition designer collaborations with mass retailers tend to launch with a bang--and not always in a good way. There are often long lines, pushing, shoving, fighting, disorganization and crazy people trying to buy the entire inventory to sell on eBay. The fact of that matter is that when Marni for H&M goes on sale tomorrow at 8am (!!), you're not going to be able to waltz in on your lunch break and pick up a couple of printed dresses. People will probably have camped out and it will probably be a mob scene by the time the stores open tomorrow. To keep things somewhat in order, H&M has a system in place. Here's the deal:
We've been teased with lots of leaked campaign images for the Versace for H&M collection, but now--finally--the whole collection has been revealed--Vogue UK had it up early today. It will hit stores on November 17, so start making your list now.
Prices will range from $17.95 for crazily-printed men's undies, to $299 for Anna Dello Russo's studded leather dress, according to WWD. The other dresses range from $149 to $249, and accessories like a silk purse will set you back $199. Expensive for H&M, but cheap for Versace, which is the whole point of these collabs, isn't it? There are even some homeware items, like pillows and throw blankets.

It's less than 24 hours until the much-hyped Versace x H&M collection finally hits US stores. While waiting for this day, we’ve been baffled by bootleg Versace x H&M (how did they get that??) and distracted by a misunderstanding over what type of women Donatella wants to be modeling the pieces, but let’s get back to the real issue here: The launch of the collection at exactly 8am on Saturday, November 19 which is TOMORROW. But if past designer collaborations have taught us anything (ahem, Target), actually getting your hands on your most wanted pieces just isn’t that simple. We know you’ve been studiously poring over your look book and planning on arriving before dawn, but just in case you might have missed something, here’s your full-on guide to prep for the Versace x H&M launch. Godspeed.
