The South of France is abuzz with activity, and the latest buzz is one we’ve been waiting for. Fashion icon Donatella Versace and pop princess Dua Lipa presented their much-hyped co-designed collection last night in Cannes, and it was exactly what you’d expect from the duo. There was glitz, and there was glam; all part of the new collection, aptly dubbed La Vacanza.
Pretty Prints, Metallic, and More!
Described as a celebration of the endless opportunities of creativity, collaboration, and friendship, La Vacanza encapsulates the shared vision of Donatella and Dua’s modern but playful elegance. For the first time, Versace presented in a see now, buy now model, and all of the pieces shown yesterday are now available to shop. La Vacanza is the Italian way to say vacation, and the pieces presented ooze glam resort in a way that only Versace could nail.
“I love the summer and for me this collection celebrates the very best of that time of year. This is the perfect summer collection—from lying by the pool in a fun printed bikini, to dressing-up to dance on hot summer evenings” -Donatella Versace
While yes, there are evening gowns and pieces to wear out at night, the collection is meant to encompass the full Versace lifestyle. Beach-ready bathing suits and terry cloth pieces sit alongside sky-high shoes and metallic mini-dresses. Bags are playful and fun, complementing the RTW in bold metallics. A focal point of the collection is the butterfly and ladybug print that was designed by the duo, which is shown on mini dresses, swimwear, shoes, and even a Versace Logo tote.
