Versace is having a moment right now. The brand has always been in the spotlight, but we can all agree that 2018 is a Donatella Versace year. It all began with the spectacular Spring 2018 tribute collection. Donatella honored her late brother by pulling his infamous prints from the archives and delivering them in an updated format. The grand finale gathered the biggest supermodels of the older generation, Carla Bruni, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, and Helena Christensen. It was a show that went straight down to history.
But the Donatella Versace moment didn’t stop there. The designer got the honors to co-host the 2018 Met Gala: “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.

From Katy Perry‘s spectacular look to Kim Kardashian‘s ultra-glamorous liquid gold dress, Donatella undoubtedly ruled the 2018 Met Gala red carpet. The CFDA International Award Donatella received this year was the cherry on top. Donatella Versace had an energetic, good year and that reflects on the brand’s Resort 2019 collection.

For this collection, Donatella introduced an array of new electric prints in the brand’s recognizable aesthetic. Part of the collection was filled with hard-to-miss explosive pieces. Donatella added a touch of athleisure to some of the looks since she knows that millennials are obsessed with this sporty-meets-chic aesthetic.
The very eye-catching designs will for sure get a special spot in the wardrobes of the A-list clientele, but Donatella made sure the Resort 2019 lineup is well balanced. Part of the collection includes tailored pieces everyone from the young customers to busy ladies would find appealing. The color palette goes from pale pink and other pastel tones to electric hues such as vibrant red, neon pink, bright yellow and more.
