In the Versace fall 2013 collection presented at this Milan Fashion Week 2013 edition it was all about punk with a glam vibe, which is the quintessential characteristic of the brand. The label is known for its bold, sexy yet still classy ensembles and this time around Donatella Versace did a “vunk” version that instantly mesmerized the audience. Opulent vibes and a few trendy touches which managed to give off a fabulous modern allure that was immediately apparent. It was immediately apparent, that this wouldn’t be a literal throwback to the past glorious era of rock and it didn’t aim towards perfection.
The designer told Vogue.com that: “Punk was the last movement that really combined music, style, and attitude, and I wanted to translate that for today. It’s elegant and glamorous, but it’s not perfect, because, you know, women can’t always be perfect”. The Versace fall 2013 collection brought exotic prints back into the spotlight, with fabulous accents of fur and even vinyl. A few fetishistic vibes with a subversive allure could also be spotted. The abstract appeal of geometric motifs wasn’t completely left aside as the brand used it to make its daring designs classy and appealing to a wider audience.
Though boldness was the initial impression, at a closer inspection, the Versace fall 2013 collection abounds in feminine pieces which exude sexiness. As always, body conscious designs were the focus of the new line. Sexy cutouts made the new options even more daring highlighting the theme even better. The new Versace fall 2013 collection used spikes, chains, studs and even nails liberally for a fab effect bold effect that left no room for doubts as far as the theme of the new line.
Since the Versace fall 2013 collection impressed through fab alternatives which drew attention through their very nature due to the texture and proportional contrasts, the need for accessories was fairly diminished. Still, the footwear choices were chosen with a clear desire to complete the theme so the edgy allure ultimately extended to the few accessories added. The new season will be all about stealing the spotlight and having fun doing it, or so it seems from what we’ve managed to see so far.
