Everyone once in a while a major fashion line will collaborate with stores us regular folks can actually afford. When this happens it’s like the clouds part in the sky and the fashion gods smile down on us commoners. That time has come again.

We reported back in June that Versace is coming to H&M and we now finally have a sneak peak at the collection. New photos of the collection were published in Vogue Russia, and the clothes are as Versace as it gets. Seriously, you would never be able to tell that they were made specifically for H&M.

There are bright colors, crazy prints and some amazing leather jackets. And if you’re not into their bright, bold designs, there will also be some amazing jewelry. Big, gold gaudy jewelry. Very Versace.

The collection is set to hit H&M store this November. H&M has collaborated with some amazing lines in the last few years. Last year Lanvin went to H&M and it caused some serious hysteria. There was so much chaos at the New York store, the president of H&M eventually stopped by the store and helped out on the sales floor. Everything was sold out in just a few hours.

Two years ago Jimmy Choo went to H&M and it’s still one of the best selling, highest grossing collaborations for H&M. I recall waking up at 4:30AM to head over to the Beverly Hills H&M and stood in line until 11:30AM. I scored two pairs of Jimmy Choo shoes, a handbag and some jewelry for under $300. The average Jimmy Choo shoe retails at about $800. Needless to say, I was pretty freakin’ thrilled.

In 2007 Roberto Cavalli collaborated with the line, but his collection was a little more toned down than his usual designs. Don’t get me wrong, it still had leopard prints, gold sequins, and it even included a visit from Cavalli himself. That would have been worth the trip itself! He stopped by when customers were waiting in line and posed with fans, taking photos and just chatting. One woman who spent $6,000 told reporters she beat another woman with a hanger over a dress. Damn, that’s a serious shopper.

But not all H&M collaborations have had that much good luck. When Madonna designed for the line, not only was there no line, it didn’t sell out and eventually ended up on the clearance rack. Guess they learned to leave the designing to actual designers.

Who would you love to see go to H&M next?
