Versace biker girl electrifies Milan. Italian designer Donatella Versace took us in a different route with a collection that recalled the signature Versace style from the 1980’s and was infused with a rock and roll sensation. The tailoring was completely rock and roll with geometric cuts applied to dresses that came in a half-short and half-long length giving great attention to the legs. A hard rock metal sensation was perceptible on dresses with metal leather inserts and on various pieces held together by zippers. The biker impression was obvious in the leather coats and pants that had inserts of leather strips that were placed diagonal. The leather in the collection gave a subtle hint of S&M but did not over power the rock and roll consciousness. Techno fabrics of mirrored leather were visible on a few cocktail dresses had a metallic look and resembled the chrome from a bike. The cut on each piece was exceptionally important in the collection placing great attention on the neckline, legs and shoulders. The Versace look is dynamic with that signature Gianni Versace touch from the 1980’s.
The show was held in south Milan at the Teatro Versace with a custom metallic sapphire runway. Model Jac opened the show in a long color blocked wool coat paired with a black shirt and a mirrored metallic leather sapphire blue skirt and black boots. Metallic mirrored leather was ubiquitously and visible in the sexy cocktail pieces, short skirts and was applied on a few finale dresses. Leather and zippers were the vital apparatus that channeled the 1980’s Gianni Versace awareness with leather pieces inserted on the pants and skirts that were held together with zippers. The asymmetric cuts on the cocktail pieces and the jersey cut dresses came in array of colors of black, white and metallic mirrored bright colors.
An admired piece in the collection was the white paneled cocktail dress that looked incredible. Other pieces include the biker pants were denim pants inserted with diagonal leather strips. The mirrored metallic leather dresses and skirts also looked exceptionally dazzling.
Donatella Versace is a wonderful fashion leader and continues to reinvent the Versace women every season. She recalled the signature Gianni Versace style from the 1980’s and updated the look to recreate her take on a modern strong and dynamic look. The Versace woman is definitely full of life and will always remain to be sexy. –Brent Billiman, Milan, Italy.
