The perfected stance of sexuality and wealth radiates through the Italian brand Versace. Everything from its fashion, its wearers, and its name with the sensual V's and S's eludes to acts of indulgence.
Of all people, Donatella Versace seemed to be the very embodiment of these notions with her platinum blond, perfectly sculptured hair, tweaked features and full assets, and her particular personal style which inspires lust-worthy appetites ... all at an extravagant cost!
That is, until H&M announced their collaboration.
This highly anticipated collection combined elements of Versace's iconic designs molded to suit a broader mass majority alongside the budget of the more common fashionista.
With lower prices and a wider audience, the collection needed no media hype to encourage Asian buyers. However, Hong Kong fans may not always feel like they fit in with the classic Versace look (if we were to go by their catwalk shows, ad campaigns and lookbooks alone).
With sleek black hair, almond shaped eyes and seductively slim bodies, the Asian women is the perfect candidate as a Versace pin-up girl. And so our fashion editorial team got to work...
So there you have it, the Versace x H&M collection with an Asian twist. The only hard part now is getting your hands on it!
