The new essentials of Versace: stripped back and bold, sexy and fresh. Lines are clean, colours are strong, details are playful.
Black tailoring is trimmed with oversized white stitching, while black long skirts are cut away at the side.
Colour-block dresses are cut across the body by an exploded Greek key, while wide bands of colour run diagonal across dresses, skirts and tops.
Knitwear is sporty, with symmetrical patterns on a sweater like racing jerseys, or cropped knit racer vests worn under tailoring.
Laser-cut tops and dresses bring lightness; leather has a punched-out pattern, while metal rings puncture dresses and leather jackets.
A new Versace print clashes images of metal rings with the Medusa and abstracted optics. Swarovski crystal mesh dresses are youthful and strong, with straps held by utilitarian buckles.
The Signature and Palazzo bags have been laser-cut, while evening clutches come in Swarovski crystal mesh.
Patent laser-cut boots, sandals and mules are all on a high transparent Perspex heel with the Medusa head cast inside.
The new collection of Versace pens is decorated with the icons of the house, while limited edition Versace watches are in vivid colour croc straps.
“This is about a fresh new Versace, one that is contemporary, clean and strong. It is the way women wear Versace now, and in the future.” DV
