Lady Gaga has teamed up with Versace for a colorful capsule collection celebrating Pride Month as well as the 10th anniversary of her landmark Born This Way album. A portion of the sales from the collection will benefit’s Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation.
“Versace has always been a leader. Since Gianni, Donatella, Allegra, and still now they have celebrated the beautiful colors of love we have within us to offer each other,” Gaga said in a post in which she’s rocking a t-shirt from the collaboration, which features the album title in cursive over a rainbow-colored Versace logo.
“We were all more different, and different is beautiful. Thank you Donatella for supporting LGBTQ+ mental health and the Born This Way tenth anniversary.” Her old friend and Versace’s chief creative officer Donatella, posted images of both the black and white versions of the shirt, writing, “I’m so excited to celebrate 10 years of Born This Way with Lady Gaga. This Pride month, we’re launching something special for all those Little Monsters who believe in inclusivity and diversity. See the link in my bio for the products I designed and how Versace are contributing to the Born This Way Foundation.”
Versace also modeled a leather jacket created for the Born This Way Ball tour, noting that a replica is being sold with every entry serving as a donation to the Foundation. In addition to the $250 unisex cotton shirts, the collection also features a $350 black beret with a rainbow Versace logo.
The Born This Way The Tenth Anniversary CD, due out via Interscope on June 18, will feature all 14 songs off of the original version in new packaging and six additional tracks, on which Gaga taps different artists who are “representing and advocating for the LGBTQIA+ community” to reimagine the songs of Born This Way.
