In the previous post we have talked about a new Versace woman and now we are going to have a look at her a little bit closer.
A new Versace girl is young, athletic and full of energy. That is why Donatella Versace puts comfort first with her fluid nylon and silk dresses. Girl’s eyes are shining, her make up is quiet simple and transparent but she has confidence in her look.
All colours in the collection are combinable with each other. There are no radiant colours yet they are still intense. Sky blue is mixed with black, navy blue, emerald green, ruby, purple, a dash of grey and some lemon yellow ingrained in details, patterns and accessories.
Immersing in spring-summer collection, we are observing different shapes: tailored suits contrast with short dresses, mini leather skirts alternate long pleated ones, jackets are cropped and at the same time parkas are oversized. In spite of all these varieties of shapes and forms we do feel integrity and harmony not only of the outfits but in the message that is being conveyed. The sex appeal of Versace’s woman is undeniable.
Vigorous girls choose light materials that are full of movement thus creating an effect of a gliding silhouette. Silk and lace provide outfits with delicacy while jersey and leather create structure. Basic elements of Versace collection such as sweaters, blouses, skirts and dresses are adorned with stripes of exquisite lace. Its edges peek from underneath the base material and float freely in the air. A new version of a chain with crystals and embroidery appeared in this collection. Its flexibility and softness are reflected in dresses with zippers with hanging straps. While a touch of glitter is appropriate for eveningwear.
As for the accessory line, there are a lot of items which are playing a more functional role then a decorative one: such as belts repurposed with an attachment for carrying cardholders or keychains. Platform sandals made with functional straps and high heels are adorned with scuba elements.
The whole collection is quiet peaceful and balanced just as the new Versace woman. She is the one who takes her maxi backpack or the new Stardust bag made of butter-soft leather, puts on transparent colourful sunglasses, wears just one (but very noticeable) earring and brings a little bit of rock-n-roll into her life.
