The Versace for H&M collection hits stores in just two weeks (are you camping out yet?) and with excitement building, designer Donatella Versace is again speaking out about the line. In an interview with, the couturier says, “it is amazing how H&M has taken these icons of Versace to make the pieces in this collection.”

One dress that “will always be so special” to Versace is the black leather studded frock (above and below, right). “It was the dress I wore to take my bow at the Versace menswear show this summer, the day before we announced our collaboration with H&M to the world,” she recalls. “It was so exciting, everybody was saying how good I looked, and nobody knew it was H&M!”

Another favorite is a printed dress and leggings combo (below, center) with a “Techno Japan” print. “We have used it in different colors and on different designs so that it can be worn in many contrasting ways,” Versace explains. “We had so much fun designing the print pieces for the collection (below, left), which can be worn individually or mixed and matched as wild as you dare.”

Additional highlights include a metal mesh mini and a darling LBD, but there is one item Versace promises you won’t find in the collection: flat shoes. “There are only high heels,” she shares. “I never wear flats, ever.” Tell us: Are you excited for Versace for H&M?
