Collaboration Flashback: Versace + Julie Verhoeven

I think “Flashback Friday” has a nice ring to it, so maybe I will start to make this a weekly thing…

Julie Verhoeven’s whimsical fashion illustrations have caught the attention of a number of high end designers, including Louis Vuitton and Mulberry. Both brands have collaborated the artist to design capsule collections for their lines, as did Donatella Versace for her Spring 2009 collection. Versace commissioned Verhoeven to rework the Versace iconography, and the artist designed a bright, colorful medusa pattern that Versace scrawled across handbags, clothing and swimwear. I wish I could find one of these gowns in a vintage shop!
