Anthony Vaccarello is collaborating with Versus Versace.

The Paris-based designer has been chosen by Donatella Versace to create a collection of ready-to-wear and accessories for the Italian fashion house's sister brand.

He enthused: ''I am so excited to be collaborating with Donatella on this collection for Versus Versace. Versace is a house that has always used extraordinary techniques to create its bold, contemporary fashion. I feel like we share a similar spirit, so for me it is a dream collaboration.''

Donatella believes Anthony was a natural fit for the brand because he is known for his sensual and bold clothing, which ties in with Versus' ultra glamorous aesthetic.

The fashion icon commented: ''Anthony's clothes have everything that I love: they are sensual, dynamic, daring. He is a natural, and has the confidence and talent to push fashion where he wants it and where it is relevant for today's women. I can't wait to collaborate with him, and to see Versus Versace through his eyes.''

Anthony follows in the footsteps of Christopher Kane, JW Anderson and rapper M.I.A. as a guest designer.
