Take a look at what some of our favourite brands have dropped this June, in honour of Pride month 2020.
1. Pride 2020 by Versace
Versace, yet again, has managed to capture our heart and the cash from our wallets, by launching a simple and chic capsule collection to celebrate Pride month this year. The collection includes everyday essential wear like leggings, tank tops, sports bras, women and men’s undershirts, etc. Taking into consideration the lockdown which has kept us indoors, Versace’s drop is curated keeping comfort in mind. When styled right, these pieces are versatile in nature. They can be worn at home and make a statement for the outdoors, both, at the same time.
A portion of the sales made by Versace USA are directed towards Pride Live, and in Europe, a portion of these sales are directed towards Arcigay. Purchasing pieces from this capsule collection go towards creating a more inclusive and equal world with full transparency.
2. Enamoured (with pride) by Marc Jacobs Beauty
