Versace had the oddest of concepts in store for fall: a couple of the looks sported head coverings, in sprinkles of colour ranging from blue to black, which ushered in a rare conservative-tone to an otherwise purely contemporary collection filled with tartan and a certain edginess that’s hard to describe – it’s almost as if punk is actually chic, for a change. The highlight of the show was undoubtedly the vibrant colour palette, which went from yellow to red, very often.
The details were important too: coins, big belts, scarves, powerfully-styled boots, eye-grabbing socks and eccentric leggings, were all part of the collection. The fall show’s notes, it’s important to add, were properly encouraging: it stated that earning-prowess measure achievements, rather than have birth dictate the latter. It was a good demonstration of what the collection overwhelmingly represented – a redefined ’80s vibe, where accentuated-shoulders + form-fitting attires meant power.
