Donatella said “When I work, I think of Generation Z and the freedom they have in not being afraid to mix contrasting pieces. Pop art meets classicism—contrast like this is everything to me, it makes you think and feel.”
Versace’s first men’s runway show in three years is a deep immersion into the world of Versace, including homewares! While the homewares offering is not a new addition, it has been introduced on the runway. Not as part of the set, propped up for guests to hover around, but in the arms of the models, who strode through the palazzo clutching urns or with side plates attached to their belt loops, once again as an extension of the brand’s offering.
This collection is the perfect balance between eccentric and refined, as it routinely does so well. Neon snake print coats and pants and lemon latex jackets brought bounce to the collection which included a slew of cobalt blue two pieces which had been layered with mint and lime Greco-Roman printed shirts and pops of raspberry silk and knitwear. Amongst it, navy and grey striped tailoring to offset the zaniness, alongside beige-toned tank tops and outerwear and classic blue jeans. The must-have was a black open knit tank top with slouchy black leather pants, perforated in a diamond shape, just not sure about the leather for summer. VERSACE.
