These days, everyone knows that an emoji speaks louder than words. So it was only a matter of time before big-name celebrities and luxury labels began creating their own iterations of these irresistible little icons. First, it was Kim Kardashian's booty-bouncing, money-flaunting take on the classic emoticons app. And now Versace is releasing its own set of emoji's— as well as a corresponding capsule collection of tees called #VersaceSharesLove.
"I love how the new Versace Emoji app lets everyone in the world express themselves and share their feelings," the house's designer (and queen), Donatella Versace, said in a statement. "To have our own Versace Emoji is a real treat, and I can’t wait to begin creating with it.” The app, which is free and available for both iOS and Android, features the brand's iconic Medusa logo reimagined as a smiley face. Shown in a range of playful expressions and styles, the icons can be used to embellish existing photos in your photo library; you can also create original images using a wide range of stickers, backgrounds, filters, and text options. And considering this isn't the first time Versace has given emoji the high-fashion treatment, we're loving that Donatella is seriously looking at (and catering to) the digital generation.
Check out the selection of tees ahead, and next time you're going to Migos in an Instagram caption, you'll have a whole new way to get the point across.
