In our interview with Donatella Versace for the September issue, the designer said that the brand is “as about strength, individuality and empowering other people. It’s about supporting one another and being inclusive. It’s about enjoying life.”
This pure energy with superior craftsmanship, creativity and innovation pulsed through her SS19 collection that she presented in Milan tonight. Her Fall range was all about ‘no barriers, no rules and no compromises’ and she has continued to push this momentum with an array bold hues, psychedelic prints and fearless silhouettes.
The clash of motifs was wild, while the sheer panels, thigh high splits, and flirty fabrics added the Versace sensuality that Donatella does well – very well. Get party ready with a tailored blazer styled with flamenco flared trousers, hit the red carpet in neon orange slip dress or show off those legs in one of her daring mini’s.
But it’s the hippy inspired, tie dye denim, rose tinted sunglasses and silk headscarves that deliver something fun for every day. We guarantee that the cropped jackets, neon sneakers, medusa hair grips and flowing floral dresses would sell out in a flash.
“My goal is to keep the brand relevant in today’s society and culture and to keep on promoting those messages of women’s empowerment, equality, freedom that we have always supported. Versace will also always evolve and be excited about the future,” she said in our interview.
After today’s show, we are even more excited for the continuing evolution of Versace.
