The womenswear collection focuses on cuts, new silhouettes and unexpected matchings of fabrics and colors.
Sleek black leather, a material that has always been integral to the brand, comes in the form of tailored blazers, A-line skirts and dresses. The silhouettes are clean and the color palettes center on block black and caramel with pops of reds, oranges, and electric blues throughout. Sporty sweatshirts are turned into dresses with nipped-in waists. This season’s little black dress, which is made from heavy jersey or leather, goes from day to night and is sometimes embellished with broken-up Versace bijoux. Accessories are bold this season and come in punchy colors as well as black and caramel. We introduce a new hobo-style La Medusa handbag in three sizes and refresh our classic Virtus line with new finishes including ecological faux fur.
The menswear presents the modern uniform for the guy of today. Athletic sportwear, tactile cashmere pieces, flannel-trimmed oxford shirts and utilitarian outerwear. There are clean-cut overcoats in vibrant blue and green. Versace’s version of a camouflage print – Baroccoflage – comes in khaki-brown and navy-electric blue combinations. Suits are sharply tailored but come in new fabrics. Some feature faint Baroccoflage prints and are worn 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 become a more sustainable brand.
