Versace: The Next Generation

Following in the footsteps of fashion heavyweights Roberto Cavalli, Stella McCartney and Lanvin, Donatella Versace has announced she’s designing her own capsule collection for H&M. The Swedish retailer has a history of establishing partnerships to bring high fashion to the masses at affordable prices, and Versace is one of their biggest partners yet. The collection has been dubbed the Iconic Collection and Donatella says it will be quintessentially Versace. Debuting Nov. 19, it will include women’s, men’s and, in a first for the retailer, housewares all bearing the signature Versace aesthetic. Expect leather, luxurious silks and bright patterns. H&M has also announced that Versace will design a pre-spring collection available exclusively online Jan. 19, which makes us think it’s a shame the Italian luxury goods maker hasn’t expanded its e-commerce site to the States. A girl can only dream it’ll up and running by then. H&M, inside the Forum Shops at Caesars.

Our most prized possession is this bar we bought from Retro Vegas. It’s the first piece we purchased for our new downtown studio when we moved in last year. It’s where we brainstorm design concepts, celebrate when we get a fantastic new project and have drinks with clients, friends and neighbors. We love the mix of gold vinyl, rhinestone tufting and the antique mirror on top. Plus, owning a small business can be stressful and challenging. Having a cocktail helps to alleviate some of that pain.
