Donatella Versace and Dua Lipa join forces to present their co-designed La Vacanza 2023 collection, marking a historic milestone as the fashion house opens its design process to collaboration.
The La Vacanza 2023 Collection embodies the reverie spirit of summer, featuring elegant evening gowns and playful printed swimwear that pay homage to Versace’s previous iconic collections while exuding modern luxury.
“I love the summer and for me this collection celebrates the very best of that time of year. Gorgeous colours, 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” said Donatella Versace.
According to Dua Lipa, “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.”
Set against the picturesque backdrop of a French Riviera villa’s gardens, the La Vacanza 2023 Collection features buckled bralettes, dresses, and men’s gilets inspired by the Versace Fall-Winter 1992 collection. With twisted and knotted jersey accents that beautifully highlight the body’s lines, these pieces reimagine the essence of the Spring-Summer 1995 Atelier Versace collection.
Aside from embracing the ’90s Supermodel era with metal mesh elements, the La Vacanza 2023 Collection embodies the signature ladybug print and butterflies reminiscent of the Versace Spring-Summer 1995 collection.
The La Vacanza 2023 Collection is available for purchase in Versace boutiques and on its website. The collection will also be made available in a number of pop-up shops, custom in-store displays, and temporary retail locations. These will be set up in major cities, including Bangkok, Chengdu, Hong Kong, Seoul, and Shanghai, as well as well-known holiday spots like Forte dei Marmi and Mykonos.
