Versace pour femme’s Dylan Blue. A Modernist Mix of Old & New

January 16, 2018

Versace has long been a byword for glitzy, bold, baroque, fringed and studded glamour. It seems fitting that following the Spring’18 show at Milan’s Triennale museum as a tribute to her deceased brother Gianni’s iconic inspirations and creations (shown above), that Donatella should mark a Spring’18 perfume launch that’s equally as retro derivative with a […]

Versace’s Pre-Fall 2014 Collection

December 17, 2013

Versace’s Pre-Fall’14 is everything you’d expect it to be. A jolt of sassy OTT colour, leather, lycra and studs with Medusa head buttons popping their faces all over the place. What I didn’t expect was the juxtaposition with retro vision (studded classic leather pants, flippy skirts and silver cowboy tipped collars  on shirts say pure […]

Versace Strides Out in Neon Fur & Gold for Spring Couture ’13

January 21, 2013

The most glorious thing about this show was Donatella’s refusal to let go of the past and Gianni’s legacy of neon clad, glarey, lairey, in-your-face, fur, lace and sheeny organza zsa- zsa OTT’ness. It was a triumph. Yes, its critics may say that it hasn’t moved on enough but that is exactly the point. Unlike […]

Donatella’s veh Versace indeed Atelier Versace A/W’13

July 2, 2012

So this was a couture show that channeled ‘sehr typische’ Versace and, while not being an ode to her dead brother, managed to convey the sheer essence of Gianni. And by essence, we mean sex.
