If you’ve ever wanted to snatch the clothes right off a model, we’ve got the next best thing. Just days after showing the latest Versus Versace collection, Donatella Versace has opened up shop with a Versus Versace pop-up inside L.A.’s Beverly Center. The collection, which was done in collaboration with Anthony Vaccarello, is available to shop now, so you get a taste of the Rihanna and Naomi Campbell-endorsed line.

Gianni Versace established Versus in 1989, giving complete control over the label to his little sister Donatella. Since then, the brand has gone through a few changes, with the latest being a platform for different designers to collaborate with Donatella. Past designers include the androgynous J.W. Anderson, Brit wunderkind Christopher Kane and rapper M.I.A. The latest collection features the work of Anthony Vaccarello, a designer known for showing major swaths of skin and creating barely-there dresses for supermodels and celebrities that feel the urge to defy gravity and show off their hours in the gym.

The temporary store will be open for about a year and is currently stocked with the M.I.A. and new Vaccarello collection that just walked in New York. The Vaccarello designs (inspired by the famous Versace safety pin dress Elizabeth Hurley wore) are heavy on skin and very sexy — think sheer panels done in Versace’s signature Greek key and hemlines that are just short of scandalous — in shades of black and gold. Accessories such as handbags and shoes are also available in addition to menswear options. The shop is the only dedicated standalone Versus Versace boutique in the United States, so if you need your fix, it’s the only place to see the entire collection in one place.

Versus Versace is located on the level 6. For more information, visit www.versusversace.com.
