For the first time the Italian fashion house Versace staged a runway show in New York, taking the city by storm with its instantly recognizable style and unmistakable personality.

 

The pre-fall 2019 collection for both men and women combines the cosmopolitan nature of the Big Apple and the mythological and traditional codes of the brand – the blend that we will be seeing a lot more since Michael Kors bought Versace earlier this year.

 

The Medusa Safety Pin makes its return in a new and contemporary way including the dress that introduced the rock n’ roll attitude to red carpet attire. No collection is complete without a burst of colours and wild prints, and the pre-fall line is no different.

 

Designs intrinsic to the house are mixed in the boldest combinations – zebra stripes and stars intertwined with gold. The ‘Love Versace’ heart print is inspired by Jim Dine’s designs for Gianni Versace’s New York townhouse and decorate a number of standout pieces including men’s shirts and the eye-catching finale dress modelled by Amber Valletta.

 

Bold, bright and beautiful this collection inherits something both cities are known for – freedom and empowerment. Click through the gallery above for our favourite looks.
