VERSACE RESORT 2022 COLLECTION
Donatella Versace gives the Cruise collection some summer of Love with a luscious twist.
June 22, 2021
The Versace Resort 2022 collection was telling of hopeful thinking, sparking joy and optimism with flying colors.
“I think there’s a renewed sense of optimism right now and I wanted this collection to speak to that,” said Versace via email. “This season is about having fun again and it feels right to put something positive into the world. We’ll never return to the old world or to the old ‘normal,’ there’s no going backwards. This is what the new now looks like to me.”
She cleverly kept the collection’s silhouette svelte and neat: A-line, ’60s mod-ish, and slashed short with conviction. Summer tweeds in acid sherbet colors looked fresh and luxe, signaling a desire for more dressed-up situations.
Riffing on the house heritage, Versace offered little tweed skirt suits in vibrant colors with hand-finished fringed hems. The primness of A-line shifts was sharply contrasted by doses of slick, liquid latex in a sort of ‘sickly bubblegum pink’ and a new baby blue shade, called DV. It was rendered into a couple of ultra-short bustier slipdresses that will be headturners wherever they go.
