The era of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll is reformulated and modernized by Junya Watanabe and Versace. The Japanese designer’s Immortal Rock Spirit collection harnesses the essence of quintessential ‘70s cultural icons and transports them into the present in a reverent celebration of fashion. Six signature graphics splatter a range of pieces to be sold by Versace and Watanabe, drawing inspiration from retro-rock T-shirts, Levi’s 501—and, naturally, the bold prints of Gianni and Donatella.
