Versace Fall 2015 Ready-to-Wear #MFW

"It's essential to remember that Versace created this fashion alphabet in the first place. When Gianni made his beaded James Deans and Marilyn Monroes at the beginning of the '90s, he was trading in what were still some of the most potent icons of that time. Donatella did the same things tonight, but she was using digital symbolism: has tags, @ signs, emojis, emoticons. The cutouts from Couture were carried over with spectacular subtlety in the random sheer slices on one leg of an otherwise sober black suit, but elsewhere cutout black coat dresses were played against a red or green thigh-boot in patent leather. The Versace Greek key, a classic graphic detail for the house, was transmogrified into #[Greek] all over pert little ribbed bombers, tucked as a metal plaque inside bags, and quilted into suede jackets and coats." -
