Active summer: The dynamic Versace life lived with absolute freedom. Our ultra-lightweight nylon has been worked to create a beautiful draping effect, making it billowy and luxurious. Tailoring in technical jersey sculpts the form, confirmed by a harness belt.
Drawstring pulls control the volume of nylon sleeveless dresses, creating ruching that sinuously contours the form. Bonded waterproofs are given Versace attitude: the mac is cropped, the skirt is mid-calf and fluid, with a trim of see-through plastic. A new print clashes checkerboards with fresh Versace lettering, while another new print is like the swirl of baroque waves on a powerful ocean.
Below the knee dresses are liberated by high slashes, pleats and wrapped panels, allowing ease and energy in movement. Strips of specially-created lace trim Versace essentials such as tanks, sweatshirts, shirts and skirts, the lace edges left free to ripple in the air. Versace crystal chain mail is embroidered to create a new mesh, its fluidity echoing in crepe wrap dresses held by a buckle with flowing straps.
Platform sandals have functional straps, while high heel platforms hold the foot with scuba. The new Stardust bag takes inspiration from the guitar strap, either used as a strap or as a fastening detail, the leather soft for a rock’n’roll attitude.
The soundtrack is a specially-written new track by Violet & Photonz, celebrating the strength of women, and the power of the female future.
“Sportswear is the future of fashion; to make it unique and luxurious is the challenge I took this season. This is a collection that is all about a woman’s freedom: freedom of movement, freedom of activity, freedom to fight for their ideas, freedom to be whomever you want to be.”
