Versace | SS 2014

VERSACE SS 2014 – A fashionshow taking place on a lime green catwalk with models emerging from a giant silver medusa head. The Versace show is Milan glamour at its most relevant.

With sex appeal and music always central to the brand, this season found a rock mood. Moving on “vunk” — Versace’s take on punk – this was heavy metal put in the glamour spinner. The chains that might be seen on a harness in a sex club became a detail on a parma violet-coloured bandage dress and black leather – that rock classic – was here in a swingy circle skirt.

A denim jacket was mixed with linen for a more high fashion finish and a key look was tight black jeans with a cut-out flower design on the thigh. Worn with a rock T-shirt, luxed up with chain mail sleeves, instead of spelling out your devotion to, say, Iron Maiden, this tee read “Versace”.

At a preview, Donatella was wearing said T-shirt with black slacks and pin-thin heels. It was inspired, she said, by a picture of herself in the nineties with “legend” Guns N’ Roses singer Axel Rose. She said the collection was “a rock chick Versace woman, very glamorous because that’s how I like to dress”. She knows her demographic: women who don’t necessarily want to go to grubby gigs, but like the look, especially when it’s polished to high shine as by Versace.
