Versace for H&M collection preview

The latest designer collection for H&M will be created by Versace. Get a sneak peek of the collection, due to hit stores in November, on the Vogue website.

Donatella seems to have had a change of heart about high street collaborations, after stating in 2008 that a high street diffusion line wasn't the Versace way. She claims this 'Iconic collection' which will see her raiding the archives of the Italian fashion house created by brother Gianni, will be 'qunintessentially Versace'.

Judging from the preview, the high glamour, sleek and sexy style that Versace designs are renowned for, will be just as full on on the high street as they are on the catwalk.

Luxury silk on the high street

Nothing makes high street fashion look more expensive than silk and this beautiful grey silk tie top, £61 from French Connection is a perfect example. French Connection are my go-to shop for sophisticated, elegant cuts and a touch of luxury.

Pair with jeans and heels for a glamourous daytime look, team with a pencil skirt for super smart workwear or wear as a jacket. The understated dove grey colour will go with everything.
