Versace is a top luxury brand in the fashion industry that has collaborated with several brands over the years – here are 5 Versace collaborations you need to know about.
Versace was founded by Gianni Versace in 1978 and has since become a highlight of Milan Fashion Week each season with the creative director and visionary designer Donatella Versace creating incredible collections for each show. Gianni intended the clothes that he made to convey a celebration of women, something that Donatella has continued at the Italian brand.
Versace, like many other luxury brands, has taken part in collaborations over the years – bringing together two different fashion houses, brands, or artists to create some totally unique pieces. If you love the opulent style of Versace, we have created a list of the top 5 Versace collaborations you should know about.
5 Versace collaborations
1. Versace x Fendi – Fendace
One of the most talked about collaborations of recent years is that between Versace and Fendi, aka Fendace. Fendi’s creative directors, Kim Jones and Silvia Venturini Fendi teamed up with Donatella Versace to create an incredible collection that combined elements from both luxury houses.
There was a joint Fendi x Versace runway at Milan Fashion Week to display the full collection – modeled by icons such as Kate Moss, Amber Valletta, Gigi Hadid, Adut Akech, Naomi Campbell, and Shalom Harlow. Dua Lipa and Elizabeth Hurley were just two celebrities on the front row of the show.

In 2019, Versace collaborated with the streetwear and sneaker brand, Kith to create a collection that brought together the opulence of Versace with the casual, athleisure style of Kith.
The collection included puffer jackets, biker shorts, leather trousers, joggers, and shirts decorated with the signature Versace gold Barocco patterns and the Versace and Kith brand names.
This Quarter Zip Pullover from the collection is the perfect example of how the two brands combined – with the street style silhouette by Kith and the brand names and Medusa head logo in the style of Versace.
