Guess Which Other U.K. Designer Is Next In Line At Versus?

With quite a number of designer shifts over the past couple months, more new appointments are beginning to shuffle into place. In this case, one London Fashion Week fixture is stepping into the shoes of another at the Donatella Versace-led diffusion label, Versus. Following Christopher Kane's departure, J.W. Anderson is next in line to collaborate on the upcoming collection for the Versus label.
Recently celebrated for his Topshop collab, Anderson will now be joining Versace's team to create a capsule collection set to debut in New York next spring. Drawing away from the traditional fashion seasons, WWD also reports Versus' desire to create a "season-less" line that caters to a more digital age, according to Ms. Versace. While Kane's former place at the Italian fashion line lasted an impressive six seasons, the future of Versus may seem more like a designer revolving door, as they plan to collaborate with more young talent with each collection. And Anderson, whose four-year-old namesake label has many enthusiastic fans (including us), is undoubtedly a smart choice to kick it off. (WWD)
