Called Versace Flash, the Versace Resort 2021 collection was a coed lineup, inspired by young musicians’ attitude of rebellion and their unconventional style choices.
The collection featured a loud, strong mix of Versace acid brights, pyrotechnical patchworks of archival prints, and sexy snakeskin patterns. Silhouettes were shapely, short, and structured, with powerful ’80s shoulders; gold rings and peep holes were cut into the fabric, revealing flashes of bare skin on glam, form-fitting black jersey numbers.
The menswear was sportier, with sweats, surfer tees, wide-leg shorts, and tracksuits featuring a bold Medusa Amplified motif mixed with snakeskin patterns. Cropped-wide-pant suits in pastel colors—lavender, mint, baby blue—provided a tongue-in-cheek soft-tailored alternative to formal dressing.
The jerseys and sweaters in the men’s line were crafted from responsibly sourced materials and dyes; in both collections, deadstock fabrics were upcycled and reused. Making do with what was available under the circumstances felt right for the moment. Versace seems to be as committed to propagating sustainability as she is to delivering high-octane glamour.
