As the days go by, the image of the many potential style elements that will come to define the new season is becoming more and more clear. Bringing both sexiness and a touch of subtlety, the industry is definitely taking a series of interesting statements into account. The Versace spring 2013 collection embodies these fab characteristics in the style that the label has become known for over the years. Subtlety does not equal modesty, however. Donatella has not given up high split dresses, bold cutouts or the desire to steal the spotlight through her designs.
Instead, we’re seeing less body conscious styles and a focus on textural contrasts. Lace is making a comeback as far as the label is concerned as well as another fun trend which took a backseat this year: gladiator inspired footwear. Though sheer touches and daring cutouts immediately give a modern vibe, subtle bohemian style inspirations can definitely be seen at a closer look. Leather touches are definitely a great choice for a fab contrast that is sure to get you noticed.
Dip die accents, golden metallic elements, sleek blazers, figure-enhancing belts, rich tones, statement flowy dresses and even fringes were some of the main highlights of the new collection. The new season is all about having fun while still feeling sophisticated in the process. Print-wise, we also notice the label’s logo being reflected in some of the designs albeit in a fairly abstract manner.
The hottest tones of the new season according to the brands? Orange, teal, gold, red tones, black or red. Aside from the daring and edgy pieces presented, the label also endorses leather clutches, cross body bags, studded belts or gorgeous metallic sandals to really bring interest and complexity to your new season looks. All in all, finding balance between sexy, trendy and fun will likely prove a lot easier in the warm months to come.
