Prince lives on in the hearts of his friends.
Donatella Versace, the iconic fashion designer, was close friends with the musician and used the runway presentation of her Spring 2017 menswear collection to pay tribute. Not only was the Purple One's style a huge influence on the fashion, but a number of his never-before-released hits provided the show's soundtrack as well.
The collection blurs the line between masculine and feminine, just like Prince so masterfully did. To go one step further, Donatella played a number of Prince classics, and several unreleased tracks as the models walked the runway. She explained, "He sent me those songs five months ago. he sent me music all the time. People look for the vault - I am the vault!"
A statement from the brand read, "Donatella would like to use this special occasion as an opportunity to share this incredible music from a dear, and much missed friend." She also dressed like Prince, wearing a deep purple suit, and black ruffled blouse.
Clearly, Prince's legacy and influence isn't going anywhere.
