Cher and Versace team up for a Pride Month collection
Fittingly titled “Chersace”, the T-shirts, socks and baseball hats feature a colorful version of Versace’s iconic Medusa logo. The collection’s highlight is a diamante T-shirt, hand-signed by Donatella and Cher and priced at $3,350. Other T-shirts are priced at $425, sporting printed versions of their signatures.

“Donatella and I have been dear friends for a lifetime,” Cher said in a press release. “It just felt right for our very first collaboration to be one about LGBTQ Pride and celebrating a community that means so incredibly much to both of us.”
Cher has long been considered both an ally and an icon for many in the LGBTQ community, tracing her affinity back to a childhood memory.
“That was my (introduction to) the gay world,” she said, adding that “gay people don’t feel like they fit in, and I never felt like I fit in.”
In a tweet about the Versace collaboration, Cher wrote, “Special (love) 2 amazing son Chaz.”
