Kim Jones and Donatella Versace pulled a "Freaky Friday" fashion stunt and temporarily switched houses. They showcased their sartorial experiment in a joint Fendi x Versace runway, called "Fendace," at Milan Fashion Week on Sunday night. "It's a first in the history of fashion: two designers having a true creative dialogue that stems from respect and friendship," Versace said in a press release. "It led to us swapping roles to create these two collections."
Earlier following this trend, Gucci and Balenciaga have also collaborated naming their collection as "hacking". For this collaboration, Jones has created 24 looks of Versace with a '90s approach mixed with Versace's signature and Fendi's monogram pattern. On the other hand, Versace created the designs with a punk rock accent taking the '90s route.
With their cross-pollination came an excellent cast of models, from older supers like Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Shalom Harlow, Karen Elson, and Amber Valletta, to the newer bunch like Adut Akech, Imaan Hammam, and Gigi Hadid.
