DONATELLA VERSACE, from the fashion house of the same name, will be the face of the next Givenchy campaign.
Some might find it strange that such an iconic designer would lend herself to a “competing” brand. Yet the two luxury brands make it a habit of surprising the public with their celebrity muses, and Tisci and Versace, both Italian, are longtime friends, a detail they didn’t hesitate to confirm on social networks once the announcement was made.
Riccardo Tisci posted a black and white photo of himself with the Italian designer on his Instagram account, accompanied by the caption, “So proud and honored to introduce my new ultimate icon: Donatella Versace…,” adding, “FW15 Givenchy Family Campaign MORE TO COME SOON!”
The hashtag “mertandmarcus” accompanied the post, hinting that the famous photographer duo could be responsible for shooting the campaign.
As for Donatella Versace, she wasted no time in commenting on Givenchy’s Twitter page: “For my talented friend Riccardo. Together we break fashion boundaries today!”
