To celebrate Pride Month and support the LGBTQ+ community, Versace is launching a special limited-edition Pride 2020 Capsule Collection. The selection features warm-weather designs and comfortable activewear such as tank tops, crop tops, and one-pieces, and includes a line-up of vibrant underwear.
Versace has partnered with two charities who will benefit from the collection, both of which are working tirelessly to create a more inclusive and equal world.
In the US, to mark one year since Donatella Versace was named a Stonewall Ambassador, a portion of sales from the collection will go to Pride Live. Versace partnered with Pride Live last year and the money raised has supported fundraising activities for those most affected by Covid-19. Funds from this year’s collection will aid the charity’s follow-up work with its current beneficiaries (Trans LifeLine, Trans Latin@ Coalition, Brave Space Alliance, and The Ally Coalition) and will help to modernize the organization’s donation platform in order to better receive financial support.
In Europe, donations will be made to Arcigay. Based in Italy, Arcigay works to fight against violence, discrimination, and violations of the human and civil rights of LGBTQ+ people. Through lobbying, advocacy, campaigning, and supporting programs and projects, the organization can make positive political, legislative, and cultural changes.
The collection will be available worldwide starting June 12th.
