Global luxury brands Balmain, Dolce & Gabbana, Isabel Marant and Versace release this September and October limited edition and one-off pieces in celebration of the fashion icon’s 50th birthday. Inspired by Claudia’s personal style and her positive approach to age, health and well-being, select items and sales will go towards a number of charities including Unicef, Heads Together and Humanitas Ricerca.
“Versace is a brand which is very close to my heart, so I’m really excited to be curating my own capsule collection for them which will retail online, in celebration of my birthday. The edit will include their signature, sexy black dresses, both mini and in full length with the classic Versace side slit, as well as stunning gold and leather detailing.”
“The first time I met Olivier was on a rainy Sunday in uptown New York for the Balmain SS16 campaign shot by Steven Klein. It was a great shoot and I loved working with him, so I’m so excited to have my favourite dress from that collection re-issued and handmade to celebrate my birthday.”
Dolce & Gabbana
“I’ve loved working with Dolce & Gabbana throughout my career, so I’m so happy that Domenico and Stefano have curated a collection of pieces from their Devotion collection for my birthday, including a handbag they have signed and customised personally. I love it!! “
“I love outfits that feel effortless, so Isabel Marant has been one of my go-to brands for years. The capsule collection that we’ve curated together, released from their archive for my birthday, includes some of my favourite wardrobe staples. The perfect jumpsuit – so easy to dress up or down, a great slouchy knit – perfect with jeans for the weekend and a figure- hugging sweater dress that I’ll wear with these super cool, cowboy boots.”
