It was announced today that Anthony Vaccarello will design the next capsule collection for Versus Versace. The Belgian designer, known for his sexy, audacious designs, will create both ready-to-wear and accessories for Versus. The collection is slated to launch at a “special event,” details of which will be announced sometime in 2014.
Donatella Versace has chosen to steer the younger brand in a new direction – making it a seasonless line, driven by a strong digital presence. Donatella will continue to design for Versus throughout a series of partnerships with young designers who she considers worthy creatives. The announcement that Vaccarello will design for the brand came as no surprise being that at just 31, he has already launched his own label, and in 2012, he won the prestigious ANDAM Award.
“Anthony’s clothes have everything that I love: they are sensual, dynamic, daring. He is a natural, and has the confidence and talent to push fashion where he wants it and where it is relevant for today’s women. I can’t wait to collaborate with him, and to see Versus Versace through his eyes,” Donatella Versace said in a media release.
