The Versace Pre-Fall collection features a mix of street attitude mixed with glamour with a play on uptown and downtown styles.
Utilizing new tailoring techniques and custom-made fabrics that mostly consisted of laminated tweeds, embroidered tulle, techno threads, and fil coupé printed with curlicue patterns, which indeed helped the overall collection achieve a signature and one-of-a-kind, high-end look.
An elaborate new print graced city parkas in silk jacquard or was knitted into formfitting dresses; it was aptly called “barocco-flage,” a very Versace blend of Baroque-inspired swirls, animal prints, and camouflage. The urban vibe was softened by more feminine silhouettes, as in elongated, fluid midi dresses, where the sporty feel was evidenced through ruched drawstrings. Tailoring was kept sharp and linear; urban bombers, biker jackets, parkas, and city coats were spiced up by the Donatella treatment: a good dose of sexy, empowering, take-no-prisoners allure.
The designer made statements through the accessory line with new it-bags and shoes. Biker boots, platforms, mini handbags and clutches completed most of the looks, adding overall urban-chic vibes that will keep on the ’90s-inspired motifs.
The collection’s color palette focused on darker tones, with only a few rich yellow and light blue accents, designed in the form of Baroque-esque motifs, interrupting the collection. A vivid dark purple dominates the scene, giving us the illusion nothing was created while keeping sportswear in mind.
