Versus Versace started this seasons London Fashion Week with a bang! Showcasing their Spring/Summer 2016 collection by the favoured creative director, Anthony Vacarello.. The collection theme was ‘decorated deconstruction. Tough fluidity. The attitude of contrasts’ featuring a strong, urban and playful mood.. A series of hand-drawn prints featuring palms and pineapple evokes the spirit of LA, dotted with iconic Versus Versace elements. Sportiness and energy run through the collection. And then, there is the always grungy chic feeling of the leather pieces with the hardcore hardware featuring the iconic VERSUS logo and lion icon. “Antony has captured the true spirit of Versus Versace. I love how he is pushing the brand that I love forward for a new generation.” Donatella Versace – “Versus Versace is about being bold and playful. Sporty functionality is fun to wear all season long, while deconstruction creates contrast and shows the skin beneath.” Anthony Vaccarello…
“I am so proud of Anthony. His first collection as creative director of Versus Versace is incredible, both revolutionary and the true essence of the house.” said Donatella Versace at the launch of the Versus Versace Fall/Winter 2015 collection in London, England last week… And I couldn’t agree more! When I was in New York for Anthony Vaccarello’s first collection I knew that he was MADE for to make this collection and again this season he showcases just why! Strong military influences, the signature Versus adornment and the strong and cult-status worthy, cool, rock and roll aesthetic! I couldn’t be happier to see another successful collection for Versus with Vaccarello!
Here are some photos from another wondrous night with the Versace team and some friends, some backstage situations and some other moments from the Versace Versus launch party in New York City a week and some days ago. This was the second installment of my project with Google & Versace and definitely was a great way to end such a wonderful, short, but amazing and seriously magic trip to New York City.. This was also the night of my uncontrollable nipple that was flashing itself all sorts of places, I mean, no shame!
So as you may know today I had the pleasure of hosting a Google+ hangout with Donatella Versace, Jonathan W. Anderson and the rest of the Versace team while here in New York with less than 24 hours to the huge Versus Versace launch party tomorrow here in New York City!

6th floor that is! New York has consistently been my haven for crazy! I mean, crazy this, crazy action, crazy people, crazy moments, all, obviously with an amazing connotation. I mean, in the short, 50 something hours (shortest I’ve ever been in that city mind you) that I was in New York so many things took place!
