Fashion MFW Runway

Versace SS16

The Versace woman is off to war. She’s an animal, a primal monster of sorts. She’s full of confidence, on both the inside and out. Donatella Versace made that very clear on her runway today. The opening look featured a leggy Raquel Zimmermann in an olive green coat dress kept shut with a striped webbed belt, balancing atop military-esque platform booties. The look was rough and hard and the impeccable tailoring was nothing short of fierce and sexy.

The rest of the collection wasn’t shy of that caliber either. There were boxy uniform style coats and jackets overtop barely there bandeau tops and short shorts. Wide legged pants made an appearance, made out of camo-jaguar silks with matching jackets and pullovers. The collection even had flat slide shoes and sandals (who knew Donatella even knew such a shoe existed!). For those who still seek out the over-the-top sexy Versace we’re so accustomed too, there were barely there silk and lace dresses, with slits well above the thigh to fulfill your need.

I’ll admit it though, I’m not a huge fan of camouflage prints on clothing, especially of such a high fashion show, but what I saw today was almost refreshing to see them used in such a way. They played with the color pallet, playing with bright neon purples, lime greens, and muted yellows. This collection should help sales as well, as many of the pieces of the collection seemed¬†appropriate for every day use. I love a super sexy body hugging dress as much as the next person, but you find your true customer base with the wide-legged pants and blazers. Whatever the inspiration was that brought Donatella to this collection (probably one of the best of her career), we applaud her.

    I loved this collection! Versus Versace by Anthony Vaccarello was great, but Donatella nailed this one!

    Great review, Zachary. I am not a huge fan of Versace but their collections are always interesting. I am hoping with the addition of Anthony Vacarello the designs will become more appealing. Let’s stay in touch.

    Such a great review! I wish I was there to see it. I am a huge fan of camouflage but I agree, it’s a little much for the show.
