Versace

Versace has also been revisiting their archives with a Baroque Pop spirit. Latex, ceramic urns, colored-python prints, and exaggerated silhouettes including silken shirts combine sexiness, simplicity, and depth.

Donatella Versace returned to menswear with a fun and inventive collection, full of color, casting images of classical statuary. Reinventing the brand’s iconic Medusa in animated versions that seem to come to life as repeating patterns on silks. In tune with the younger generation’s concern with the planet, Versace substituted exotic skins with python prints featuring neon accents, appearing as trenches or trousers, grounded by oversized pinstriped accent pieces. Leather-looks styled out of eco-sustainable latex were well ventilated with a repeating diamond pattern.
