MILAN — Versace is collaborating with 2 Chainz on a new “2 Chain Reaction” sneaker. In addition, a men’s ath-leisure capsule collection designed with the American rapper will be available exclusively in the U.S.
The shoes will be presented in Atlanta, the hip-hop star’s hometown, during the weekend of Feb. 1, which is Super Bowl weekend. The game will be played Feb. 3 in Atlanta.
Characterized by the sneakers’ staple chain-link sole, Versace’s Grecian frieze, and braille lettering, the shoes introduce an embossed croc Neoprene collar with dual zip closure. The zippers are connected by a nylon strap for ease and functionality.

The collaboration will launch in a pop-up boutique in Atlanta’s Wish Gallery Feb.1 to 3 and on versace.com. The sneaker will be dropping in the Versace Phipps Plaza boutique that week and become globally available on Feb. 8.
The limited-edition sneakers come in a branded box and bag featuring the “2 Chain Reaction” logo.
Born Tauheed Epps, 2 Chainz is also the founder of apparel brand CEO Millionaires, which in 2016 teamed with Julieanna Goddard, also known as Yes Julz on Snapchat.
In November, 2 Chainz released the two-song EP “Hot Wings Are a Girl’s Best
We all remember THAT Jennifer Lopez Versace dress. A bit like the safety pin dress Liz Hurley (also by Versace) wore back when she was with Hugh Grant, it became an instant icon and you couldn’t think of it of one without the other.
As you recall, the singer wore the tropical print dress with a deep v neck to the 2000 Grammy Awards and obviously stole the show.
Now Donatella has decided to take us all down a trip down sartorial memory lane by re-issuing that very dress, with a 2018 twist.
At her pre-fall 2019 show in New York, the designer sent Amber Valetta down the runway in a plunging maxi made of silky fabric.
This season, it’s taken on a different theme though, with pretty metallic hearts adorning the dress, a nice nod to the 80s trend.
Don’t know about you, but I was into it then, and I’m even more into it now.
The remaining campmates were given notes from their loved ones during last night’s episode and Rita seemed excited about seeing her family before she knew she was going to be voted off.
She said: “It’s so tangible that I’m about to see my family. My barriers have come down a bit and I just miss them all massively.”
Rita did not seem shocked or saddened when host Dec announced she would be leaving the show later in the episode.
A delighted Rita grinned and said: “I’m sorry, I’m just so happy.”
