British designer JW Anderson is to design a capsule collection for Versace’s diffusion line Versus.
This partnership forms the first of a series of collaborations, which are part of the repositioning of the brand.
The collection will be launched at an event in either March or April next year in New York. The range will include women’s and men’s ready-to-wear and accessories.
Designer Donatella Versace said: “I keep a close eye on young talent, and have been impressed by Jonathan’s work over the last couple of years. Versus is all about fun, change, and digital. I can’t wait to present this collaboration.”
This comes as it was announced earlier this month that Christopher Kane would no longer design for Versus as the company looks to reposition the brand.
