With the new collection, designer Donatella Versace wants to take us away from the scary reality to an optimistic, underwater city, Versacepolis, where strong and confident people live. The clothes are meant to bring us joy. In a statement beneath the livestream on YouTube, Donatella Versace shared: “I wanted to create something disruptive, something that could be in tune with what has changed inside all of us. To me, that meant dreaming of a new world. A world made of popping colors and fantastic creatures and a world in which we can all coexist peacefully.”
Now, you understand why Jill Kortleve, Precious Lee, and Alva Claire, the three curvy models, wore bold, exuberant colors to exude a future of optimism and hope. So, let’s get to know these three faces.
