Donatella Versace and Dua Lıpa unveıl La Vacanza collab’ collectıon ın Cannes
Donatella Versace and Dua Lipa presented their summer collab’ collection La Vacanza in the hills above Cannes.
Standing for ‘The Vacation’ in Italian, the collection was unveiled before the pink neo-classical Chateau de la Croix des Gares, offering views over Cannes and the Lérins Islands, and the fortress that held the Man in the Iron Mask.
Co-designed by Donatella and Dua, the collection was made available in-store and on the Versace website immediately following the show. NBA star Dwyane Wade and Formula One champ Lewis Hamilton shared a pool side table, nearby actress Simone Ashley, British thespian Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, very groovy Rina Sawayama, alongside visiting K Pop stars.
The Regina della Moda and the music Supernova opened their gala show with a rather classic Versace pink dress suit, cut with three buttons and flap pockets, before immediately upping the sizzle with a mini skirt and bustier bra top – two wee pockets attached to two straps finished with Medusa heads. A feature that recalled the one worn by Dua in her iconic clubbing video Don’t Start Now.
Metallic pink and azure leather mini cocktails followed worn by Donatella favorites like Anna Evers. The collection cleverly blended two prints – a Smarties worthy colorful polka-dot and a butterfly pattern. Seen in palazzo pants and mini jackets; flared trouser suits and chiffon gowns. A mini cocktail in the print is priced at 3,500 euros on the Versace website, while the pink bustier will cost fans 2,900 euros.
The collection also featured sure-fired winners like a taut butterfly print sleeveless body, worn with a light turquoise miniskirts, and several steamy lingerie looks. All presented on a cast with big bouffant Barbie hair styles.
In the end the most powerful looks were in black cutaway cocktails, slit up the thigh, and finished with Medusa button harnesses, and worn by models like Vittoria Ceretti. Included in the show were some snappily stylish rings, like a Medusa ring at 520 euros, which mixed up the house’s iconic logo and semi-precious ladybugs in red and violet or an aquamarine butterfly. Displayed in a pre-show video on Instagram emerging from an azure pool or on the hand of Lipa, alongside a live butterfly.
