A bona fide Versace muse, Dua Lipa has become a permanent fixture on its front rows, a face of its campaigns and even modeled collections on the runway (she opened and closed the spring/summer 2022 show). And now, the singer has co-designed a womenswear collection with Donatella Versace, entitled “La Vacanza”, which will debut at an intimate fashion show in Cannes on May 23.
“I have always been inspired by a collaborative design process,” Donatella said. “Working with Dua on this collection has been very exciting and I love the dynamic between us. Dua is strong, fearless and free and her creative vision is exceptional.” The creative director also revealed that “La Vacanza” will capture the “feeling and colours” of summer – a “magical time”.
Dua, meanwhile, described the “strong bond” she has developed with Versace over the years. “For her to give me the honor of co-designing this collection and letting all my summer inspirations go wild has been a dream,” she added.
Dua has worn new season, vintage and custom Versace pieces on the red carpet, the stage and for personal milestones.
