Versus announces new designer

The next chapter

Versace has today announced that the next designer to collaborate with them on their Versus diffusion line will be Anthony Vaccarello. There are some big boots to fill over at the Italian fashion house, where Christopher Kane and J W Anderson previously cut their teeth, and M.I.A. created a capsule collection.

With several prestigious fashion awards under his belt and his own label to boot, we have not doubt that 31-year-old Vaccarello will step up to the mark.

Speaking about the designer, Donatella Versace said, '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.'

We couldn't agree more, Donatella; we can't wait either.
