Fall/Winter 2017-2018 Ready-To-Wear
Versus - Versace
August 06, 2017
Sharp shapes and contrasting volumes have young fierce attitude, like a strong-shouldered raglan-sleeve scuba dress with moto sleeves and a silver zip down the back.
A brand new print is created from torn-up and over-painted iconic Versus imagery, a fresh play with heritage on everything from padded jackets to dresses and T’s.
Metal mesh is reborn in black-on-black, with black metal mesh bonded onto black scuba for cocoon-shaped long-sleeve dresses with a zip down the back.
Fluffy teddy yarn sweaters come in sorbet colors and cropped shapes. Meanwhile bobble knit sweaters create unexpected futuristic structure.
Shearling jackets are given a tech update for both men and women, cut into panels that are held together by scuba, with oversized scuba pockets.
Leather is key, like the classic Versus leather jacket, an A-line leather mini-skirt, a leather wrap skirt with its long strap held by D-rings, or cropped leather culottes.
Tracksuits are reinvented, like the track-dress with a round cutout at the back.
Super-short iridescent sheer dresses have a twist in the front, or is draped on the front of a tank dress.
Mary Jane sandals and knee-high boots add character, while sneakers are elevated with a thick sole and exaggerated tread, held by a velcro tab.
The key women’s bag is held by a strap decorated with an oversized classic Versus buckle.
“Fashion has the power to send out a message of hope and unity, especially to the new generation. Versus is about passion, optimism and a fierce statement of equality.” Donatella Versace.
