For Fall Winter 2016, the Versus Versace collection by creative director Anthony Vaccarello features a tough, rebellious attitude reflected in a utilitarian mood for the city streets.
Trench coats, zip-up bombers, double-breasted coats and cargo pants define the season for both women and men. Camouflage prints are reborn with the head of the Versus Versace lion, while paisley prints bring softness and leopard prints have rock energy. Mini skirts in either print or pleated with the Versus Versace lion hardware, are daring, a playful contrast when worn with utilitarian coats.
Everything in the collection depicts attitude, especially the fur-trimmed parka, or the men’s blouson with a fur collar. The shirt is the new city essential, like the women’s black shirt with epaulettes, or the men’s camo shirt, always with a covered placket. There’s tomboy toughness to women’s pieces like the pinafore body miniskirt or the loose fit jeans, especially when worn with flat ankle boots.
Checkerboards of patent or studs turn bombers and miniskirts optical, the perfect combination for shirt prints that remix the iconic Versace Greek key. Fearlessness is innate, like the diamond slashed lingerie top for women, or the black sheer long dress with utility pockets at the chest. A one-sleeved black mini-dress is held by the Versus Versace lion, while a black T-shirt dress has a bold trim of Versace metal mesh.
“I love people with a strong sense of mind. It’s this toughness that we capture in the new Versus Versace collection – the individual attitude of the new generation.” Donatella Versace
