Versace has unveiled “Le Muse” its Pre-Fall 2021 collection for men and women.
Inspired by modern muses the collection is all about the Versace essentials for the men and women of today.
Donatella Versace has created designs that celebrate personality and individual identity, presenting the new must-have pieces for the new world that we are living in today. She focuses on new cuts, new silhouettes and unexpected pairings of fabrics and colours; representing the unexpected world we now live in.
Sleek black leather comes in the form of tailored blazers, A-line skirts and dresses. Silhouettes are clean and the colour palette focuses on black and caramel with pops of red, electric blue and orange.
Sporty dresses are given nipped-in waists, while this season’s little black dress comes in heavy jersey or leather fabrics.
Accessories are bold in bright colours as well as the key shades of black and caramel. A new bag is introduced; the hobo-style La Medusa handbag which comes in three sizes and the classic Virtus line sees new finishes including an option in ecological faux fur.
When it comes to menswear this collection presents a uniform for today’s modern man. Athletic sportswear, cashmere pieces, flannel-trimmed oxford shirts and utilitarian outerwear address both functionality and style.
There are clean-cut overcoats in vibrant blue and green while the Baroccoflage (Versace’s take on the classic camo print), comes in khaki and brown and navy and electric blue combinations.
In tailoring, suits are sharply tailored and come in new fabrics. Some feature the Baroccoflage prints and are paired with relaxed sportswear for a clashing effect.
Jersey and sweatshirts have been crafted from eco-sustainable fabrics, and the formalwear is made from over-printed deadstock as part of Versace’s ongoing commitment to becoming a more sustainable brand.
