Versace for H&M

I was a bit scared looking at the new Versace collection for H&M, a lot of the pieces are extremely loud with enormous fluorescent patterns on them: this is not a collection for the faint hearted, the last image of the horrid pink fridged set is probably the worst thing I have ever seen :S. As I look at more pictures of the collection I am pleasantly surprised as there are a selection of pieces that are much more classic and wearable in my opinion. My favourite piece has to be the little black dress, I'm actually gutted this collection doesn't come out till the 17th November as I need this dress for my birthday on Saturday as it is pretty much what I have been looking for! gutted :(. The lilac dress is also really cute but I can't help feeling it's an odd colour for an A/W collection. The same goes for the neon pink dress below it, the detailing on the dress is amazing but I can see it being worn at a summer wedding not at a Christmas party. The studded black skirt is great, just the right amount of detailing to make it unique without being over the top. Again, the black corset is AMAZING, I absolutely love the structure in it and the little bit of colour just add something a little extra.

Alexander McQueen

Just having a look at the new Alexander McQueen collection for Spring/Summer 2012 and I really like it! Sarah Burton still keeps that kooky, innovative vibe with the face coverings and the intricate detailing on the garments but quite a few of the evening dresses could be worn to an event without looking too gaga. I really admire the way her designs always look like something new and something  I've not seen before.
