24 Feb VERSACE | Fall 2018
80’s Glamour. Who better to bring it back? Donatella Versace. She lived it, she triumphed through it. Last season’s retrospective for her brother Gianni was so good, every piece was as spectacular as the genius he was.
The play on classics this season, the trenchcoat, the schoolgirl shirt collar, the tartans! The house amazingness continues, in the 80’s the hair was such a focus, now the head coverings is set to reinvent the spirit of glamour. With one accessory, Donatella remains currently significant, the years of bouncing Cindy blowouts now becomes political. The tightly-wound jersey scarves and dark glasses rendered the ultimate visual impact. Subliminally, they signaled a lot of things which are now up for consideration. Donatella said that to her, those pieces meant “mystery”. She and Gianni were always open to diversity and nothing has changed. Today, inclusiveness takes in the fact that there are so many cultures in the world where modesty is STILL a standard.
