This morning, a few lucky members of our team had the opportunity to get their mitts on the long-awaited Versace for H&M collection that launched in the UK today. We've already had a mini fashion parade in the office, and I can honestly say that the collection is worth the investment: it's true Versace without any of the high street watering-down that some of us had feared.

The studded leather jackets and structured bodycon dresses really do amaze: it's the materials that let you know the pieces are top quality - but here at Shoewawa we're of course itching to find out what the footwear is like, and the image above should give you a little taster.
Hot pinks mingle with classic black shades in flat, sky high and boot styles, each with real character of their own that you won't find on the high street again any time soon. We love the attention to detail: the little round metal studs in the heel of the boyfriend shoes and the pointed gold buckles on the boots to name but two. All in all, this is a surprisingly desirable and smart collection. Go Donatella!

the collection is only available in selected stores: check out a list of Versace for H&M stockists at our sister site, Catwalk Queen. If you can get the page to load any time today, the collection is also available online at H&M.
