Versace's Iconic Butterfly Print Comes In for a Second Landing
And it's beach-ready.
In memory of the 20th anniversary of Gianni Versace’s death, his sister, Donatella, resurrected the late designer’s beloved novelty prints for Spring 2018. And much to everyone’s delight, the Versace butterfly resurfaced. The whimsical print first debuted on the runway in the Spring/Summer 1995 collection; the pieces landed multiple covers then, from U.S. Vogue's April 1995 issue to Elle France. The butterflies were such a hit, they were even immortalized on Versace fine china. On the Spring 2018 runway, the motif came in for a second landing, recreated on a beach-ready robe, towel, suit and tote — with new additions that include pool slides and sunglasses.
The print has even made its way to the red carpet. "I'm having a real '90s moment right now," Margot Robbie told Vogue at the New York premiere of Goodbye, Christopher Robin back in October, where she was wearing an archival Versace gown styled by Kate Young.
