Recently I’ve been seen LOTS of runway pictures, and I thought I could share them with you. The spring 2013 collections were very intricate, some were hot, some where not.
When you think of the word ‘runway’ with all the big names, you instantly think… Elegant? Refined? Posh? But is it really the case with Donatella Versace? I think the collection says it all.
I saw lots of golds, blacks, some neutrals, and some neon. Who would’ve guessed? Not me.
Versace said that she had been inspired by Le Centorial, the glass, iron and steel domed building in the heart of Paris.
Probably my favourite out of the whole collection!
The white mink coat (above), which, reworked with mirror, python and crystal embroidery, took 500 hours to construct. But 500 hours for a single jacket? That sounds museum-worthy rather than real fashion. But Versace insists there are no plans to open a Versace museum. “We keep one of every item for our archives, ” she says, ” but while I love museums, I prefer to see my clothes on living bodies”.
‘It’s all about gold,’ said Donatella Versace immediately before her Atelier Versace show kicked off the spring/summer haute couture collections in Paris. And indeed it was – from the 24-carat pinstripe patch-worked into narrow–waisted, strong-shouldered jackets and cigarette-leg trousers, to the talon heels of shoes. More precious metal came in the form of gleaming oversized epaulettes and exaggerated cuffs that were part must-have accessory, part weaponry, and the house’s signature metal mesh. It’s safe to say that Versace chainmail is as razzle-dazzle spectacular now as it ever was.
ON THE MAKEUP:
“Donatella was really obsessed with a neon green metallic that’s in the shoes and in the clothing – really lime, hot green metallic,” explained McGrath Sunday night backstage. “So we added just a little strip of eyeliner to the outside of the eyes as a line and a little bit on the inner corners.”
So I did like the detailing, but is it something I’d wear? Hahaha no. Do tell me guys what you think about Versace newest collection!
