VIDEO | VERSACE presents “Chicago is my beat”

The actor Robert Mitchum once told me, "when you first get to a new town, always make friends with a Blonde". Well, when I got to Chicago, I found my blonde in you, Donatella. I wanted us to visit this city together because of its rich history and the spirit of love and harmony you feel in its music. Chicago is going through a tough time at the moment and could use a little encouragement - just like we all need ever once in a while. Because the kindness of its people helped me to make this photographs, I feel like I can now call Chicago "my beat"- Bruce Weber

Bruce Weber is the true master of our times. His photography is deeply personal and rich, a reflection of the world as he sees it. It has been my pleasure to enter once again into that world for this Versace campaign.  With this new campaign, Bruce gave me my history back - Donatella Versace 

The new campaign stars Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss and Dilone in a series of tableaux, some real-life and some fantastical. The combination perfectly illustrates the relevance and wearability of modern Versace for all parts of one’s life, from the ultra-glamourous to the everyday. The images were shot in Chicago and, in classic Weber style, womenswear and menswear are shown together. Some of the campaign photos reflect a take on the modern family, which is wonderfully Weber and very Versace.
