Versace for H&M Debuts Tonight

In a few short hours the most talked about designer/fast-fashion collaboration since Missoni for Target drove shoppers and the internet wild earlier this year, will hit the runway in NYC. Versace for H&M will be shown tonight at Pier 57 in New York City’s meatpacking district which has been re-christened “Versace for H&M Hall on the Hudson” for the evening’s festivities. Musical Performers will include loyal Versace wearer Prince and Hip-Hop’s fashion forward favorite Nicki Minaj, both of whom will almost certainly be wearing pieces from the collection.

Donatella Versace told Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) that “to have my friend, the great, the amazing, the one and only Price and the extraordinary Nicki Minaj both perform at the event, will create exactly the feeling of joy and glamour I want this partnership to express.” No official word yet but rumor has it the two may be pairing up for a duo during a song that includes vocals from Donatella herself.

The 43 piece collection is full of the Miami chic palm tree prints and wild patterns that Donatella is known for and will be starting at $19.99 for the jewelry with the most expensive pieces topping out at $299. The entire collection will be available in H&M stores and on their website next Thursday, November 17th. According to a story by WWD Donatella was actually approached about doing the H&M collaboration two years ago but declined saying that she “wanted to work to stablilize the main collection everywhere in the world.”

The Versace for H&M collection wont be the only show going on tonight in the big apple, as Victoria’s Secret’s annual show will be taping tonight at the 69th Regiment Armory in Kip’s Bay and according to reports on Nicki Minaj has just been tapped to replace Cee Lo Green in performing alongside Kayne West and Maroon 5 so let’s hope for her sake that mid-town traffic is light tonight.
