Versace’s Colorful ‘Underwater’ Collection For SS21

Selena A. Nutter

Donatella Versace transports us underwater to unveil her new spring/summer 2021 collection, and we are all about it. Discover Versacepolis, a utopian underwater settlement populated by strong and confident men and women.

This is THE handbag everyone's going to be carrying this spring. The bright candy hued top handle chain bags capture a feeling of hope and fantasy.

Don’t be surprised when these gems start popping up in the feeds of all your favorite fashion influencers. After a tough quarantine year, this collection is truly a breath of fresh air.

Explore A New Underwater Fantasy World

Versacepolis is where mythology meets the reality of the unknown. The backstory for the runway show was of a settlement created on the seabed, ruled by Medusa. It’s a dream space where self-assured men and women live together in harmony.


“I wanted to create something disruptive, something that could be in tune with what has changed inside all of us. To me that meant dreaming of a new world. A world made of popping colors and fantastic creatures and a world in which we can all coexist peacefully.” -Donatella Versace-

At the time of production during Milan fashion week, the underwater world of Versacepolis felt like one of the only safe places to travel. The pandemic was still a reality, but the live-streamed show, set in a sand-covered dimly lit space with models that looked like glowing sea creatures gave us a moment of sweet escape.

Then earlier this year, Medusa muses Hailey Bieber, Kendall Jenner, Mona Tougaard, and Precious Lee transported us back to Versacepolis once again when the luxury Italian label’s Spring 2021 campaign was officially unveiled. Recreating the sexy, fresh, dreamy wet-look first debuted on the runway, the photo campaign features wet hair, low-key radiant makeup, and tons of accessories to compliment Versace’s colorful bags and prints.


For the campaign, each model posed with a piece from the fashion house’s new handbag line, La Medusa. The bag comes in a range of shades, including playful color options (our favorite) and neutrals. The campaign is the first Precious Lee, pictured above, has starred in for Versace.

Lee wears the same ensemble she wore strutting down the runway, a Trésor de la Mer-printed dress and the La Medusa handbag in DV blue. We love everything about this look, and think she makes a great addition to the Versace campaign.

“All of us, with our differences and unique characters, we can express ourselves also in the way we decide to dress.” -Donatella Versace-
