The beginning of a beautiful relationship...

So, after much faffing (something which I am particularly skilled at) I have finally created my first blog!

I've heard that creating a blog is like starting a new relationship, so lets consider this blog a blossoming romance in the honeymoon period, where everything is new and exciting, and I am discovering new things! I guess we'll have to wait and see if were in it for the long haul..

So from my one new relationship to another I would like to dedicate my first blog post to the recent exciting news of luxury fashion brand Versace joining forces with high street retailer H&M.

Following in the footsteps of designers Lanvin, Roberto Cavalli, and Jimmy Choo to name a few, it appears it is now Versace's turn to step up to the high-end meets high-street collaboration plate.

From the previews available, at present the collection appears to showcase exquisite tailoring, leather dresses, and studded detailing in the plenty! Quintessential Versace indeed, and all at high street prices!  

“Versace is one of the most important brands of recent times and their collection for H&M will be glamorous and flamboyant – everything Versace stands for. Donatella Versace is sharing with us iconic designs from the archives. This is such a celebratory collaboration and is perfect for the festive season,” Margareta van den Bosch, creative advisor at H&M.

So till November we shall have to wait, and never have I wished for the autumn season to be here sooner! In the mean time here is a teaser video credits of H&M and Youtube.
