Designer / store collaborations have become so common of late that it now takes something truly exciting to catch the attention of shoppers. Well, how about Roberto Cavalli for H&M?
H&M made the announcement yesterday and it’s one we didn’t see coming. Going from celebrities like Madonna and Kylie to a big name Italian designer is likely to be a step in the right direction for H&M, who could never quite compete in the celebrity stakes thanks to Topshop’s deal with Kate Moss.
The “Roberto Cavalli at H&M” collection will be available in approximately 200 selected H&M stores worldwide for a limited period of time starting from November 8th 2007.
“I love freedom and challenges: breaking down barriers, experimenting in different directions. H&M is all this for me. I will add a dash of festivity and dreams,” Cavalli explained.
The line will consist of iconic menswear, 20 pieces, and womenswear, 25 pieces, including lingerie plus matching accessories.
