The scene Monday night on the fifth floor of Versace’s Fifth Avenue store was at once a page from the playbook of the surreal and business as usual.

The occasion was a preview of Donatella Versace’s latest iteration of Versus Versace, now positioned as a seasonless collection of house classics, and its new, one-season capsule line by J.W.

To label it as such does not do justice to the “happening,” nay “event,” in the words of Versace’s p.r., which will take place from 9:30 p.m. to around midnight at the Lexington Avenue Armory, where performances by Dead Sara, Angel Haze and Grimes will split up the three tableaus of clothes, along with a soundtrack by Lady Gaga produced exclusively for the event. Good old-fashioned partying is encouraged in the interim.
