An acquisition by Michael Kors would be a landmark deal for the fashion industry, with an American company taking over an Italian icon.

Meanwhile, Michael Kors previously acquired ladies shoe brand Jimmy Choo for $1.2 billion previous year. Previous year the American company acquired Jimmy Choo for $1.2bn.

Four years ago it sold a 20% stake to USA private equity group Blackstone.

The family will reportedly retain a role after the takeover.

Investors appeared mixed on the linkup; Kors' stock fell six percent following the stories reporting the deal.

Blackstone, whose stake acquisition valued Versace at $1.4 billion in 2014, declined to comment. CEO Jonathan Akeroyd stated that the group boasted sales of $760 million in 2016 and turnover is expected to exceed by more than a billion in the "short term". Versace has been pushing for an initial public offering, or IPO, but they failed to reach the goal due to a fluctuating market. Donatella Versace now serves as its creative director, while Santo Versace is its chairman. Tiffany & Co. LVMH, PVH Corp. and Tapestry have all shown interest in purchasing Versace. The 40-year-old fashion house returned to profit in 2017 and reported revenue of almost $800 million.

Last year, Versace brought back former top models Carla Bruni, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Helena Christensen to the fashion house's catwalk.
