Versace announced today that Anthony Vaccarello, the Creative Director of the Versus Versace brand, will be departing the company effective immediately.
Donatella Versace said: “While I’m sad to see him leave the Versace family, I wish Anthony Vaccarello tremendous success with his next chapter. In the past several years, I have worked with three great young talents on Versus Versace: Christopher Kane, JW Anderson and Anthony Vaccarello. In each instance, their time on Versus Versace led to them making a huge advancement in their design career. I appreciated the chance to work with each of these three designers, and I enjoyed seeing what they brought to a brand I truly love. I’m proud that Versus can be such a remarkable global platform for emerging design talent. As for the future, I’m most excited about taking on a bigger role with Versus, and doing what I always do – surprising everybody!”.
