Donatella Versace and Dua Lipa unveil their collaborative women’s collection, Versace La Vacanza. A celebration of endless creativity, collaboration, friendship, and a life lived by Versace, this collection marks the first time Versace opened up the design process to a collaborator.
For La Vacanza (Italian for “vacation”), Dua Lipa and Donatella Versace present a modern and elegant vision for the entire Versace lifestyle, including tailoring, evening gowns, bikinis, and beachwear.
Returning the Versace Spring Summer 1995 collection, the Butterfly & Ladybugs print iconography finds a new phase of life in La Vacanza. In addition to the introduction of tailoring layered over swimwear and bralette tops, the collection sees a family of accessories offered in laminated metallic leather and stack loafers and boots. Like a Dua Lipa album, the collection is immediately available, a see-now-buy-now collection inspired by fashion and music.
I love the summer and for me this collection celebrates the very best of that time of year. Gorgeous colors, fun prints, and light silhouettes. 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 in the perfect evening dress—these clothes immediately make me think of my holidays and being in the sun. Dua loves Fashion, I love Music—we are the perfect duo! We had such a good time designing this collection together. We felt like we were on vacation and that is exactly the spirit we want people to feel when they wear our clothes.Donatella Versace
Donatella and I bonded over our shared love of this time of year while making this collection. Digging through the archives we discovered we were drawn to a lot of the same references which was such an inspiring and fulfilling process. La Vacanza ranges from metallic miniskirts and sexy bikinis, to butterfly rings and printed pieces inspired by the Versace SS ’95 collection. There’s always an occasion to wear Versace, and I know I’ll be spending my days (and nights!) in La Vacanza all summer long.Dua Lipa
