Versace has solidified its place in history for praising and exalting the female form: its every arch, curvation, and bend. Donatella Versace has been at the helm of the brand for almost two decades now and has definitely made the iconic Italian fashion house synonymous with power, sensuality, and strength: yes, the kinds of pieces you would wear for a night out but for the love of your own body and not that of the male gaze. D-ring accented straps, bomber jackets, functional knits, and contrast stripes kicked off the sporty chic vibe that pervaded over its latest Couture assortment.
But let’s not fool ourselves: Versace was not straying from its signature aesthetic. Expertly-tailored power suits, deep-cut necklines, sultry slits, and flashes of flesh were on parade. Midriff-baring bandeaus, pencil skirts accented by thigh-high cuts, sheer sleeves, and poignant perfection were on the agenda out of the gate.
Couture calls for technicality and that was on high by way of colorful woven straps, sexy open knits, smoldering slits beset with sequin embellishment, and flesh-tone under layers giving the impression of almost complete nudity.
