The Versace Pre-Fall 2019 fashion show recently took place in New York, marking the first American Versace runway show. Donatella Versace officially stated that she wanted to celebrate the city by bringing the "sartorial heritage of Milan and fusing it with the energy of New York and its eclectic nature." The range is comprised of print-heavy luxury items that are true to the label's European heritage.
To reference New York City, there are earthy hues used in collaboration with vibrant designs including the 'Love Versace' heart graphic, which was inspired by Gianni Versace's New York townhouse. Versace aimed to highlight the constant push of boundaries that New York strives for in order to consistently better themselves as a city.
