Versus Versace will present in London for the first time

Anthony Vaccarello's first collection as creative director is headed to our shores

Versus Versace is coming to London for the first time on May 14 in a special digital happening hosted by Donatella Versace and creative director Anthony Vaccarello. It continues Vaccarello's meteoric rise at Versace; he was announced as the new creative director of Versus earlier this year, less than six months after designing his first capsule collection for the brand.

There'll be a special exhibition and performance, details of which are still under wraps. Vaccarello's success should come as no surprise – he's had Donatella Versace's backing from day one. "I’ve followed Anthony’s work from his very first collection, as soon as I met him I realized immediately he was the one, he gets it, his talent screams Versus Versace," Donatella said. "I love his fresh energy and innovation and I love being surrounded by a talent which brings newness to Versace."

Versus Versace was founded in 1989 as a gift from Gianni Versace to Donatella. It's become known for its rock chic flair and rebellious, punky aesthetic. Its long list of collaborators reflect that – M.I.AChristopher Kane and J.W Anderson are three figures who've brought their revolutionary vision and style to the brand.
