The Nine Wildest and Wackiest Looks From the J.W. Anderson x Versus Versace Collection
Ever since it was announced that design wunderkind J.W. Anderson was stepping in to design a capsule collection for Versus Versace, the fashion flock's been wildly wondering what a team-up between the avant-garde Irishman and glitter-and-glam-loving Donatella might look like. Well, last night, we found out. Versace threw a clubby bash to fête the collab at New York's Lexington Avenue Armory, which was attended by the likes of Heidi Klum, Joe Jonas and (somewhat inexplicably) Woody Allen.
In between performances by rapper Angel Haze, rock group Dead Sara and electro-indie darling Grimes, we got to check out Anderson's capsule for Versus up close. Rather than presenting the line in a traditional runway format, Donatella and her new collaborator dressed and prepped the models inside of a giant transparent box. This allowed guests to see not just the finished looks, but the entire styling process as well.
As for the clothes themselves, we have no doubt they'll find a place in the closets of club kids in every major metropolitan area across the globe—but there sure were some tricky-to-pull-off pieces mixed in. Click through for some of the most head-scratching looks. Would you dare to wear them?
