What is more challenging: to create a collection based solely on your own philosophy and senses, or having to create something new and fresh yet that which embraces a history and legacy that is known for everything extravagant, glamorous, and luxurious? Yes, you guessed right- the latter, and this, is just what Anthony Vaccarello had to come up with, the designer well known for his unique take on the new-kind-of-sexy that is both feminine and empowering. I personally was skeptical if it would even be possible to beat what J.W. Anderson had done for the brand the past season; but was I wrong- the moment I walked into the venue, my physical reaction was proof that I was in for an adventure of a lifetime, possibly the best 15 minutes of my life- only had I known that it would only get better as night went on- Did somebody say Rihanna? Naomi Campbell? While many are experimenting with colors, prints, and embellishments, Vaccarello decided to stick to monochrome, mostly black with occasional splashes of gold and white- we are not talking about complete muteness however, this is a different kind of black we are talking about, with the Versace’s signature logo Medusa acting as the not-so-subtle connection between the designer and the house- this collection is nothing but monotonous, every piece screams ‘power’ but with a touch of elegance and femininity. If Versus needed an upgraded, modern version of the brand, this is exactly what they needed, and on that note, I’d like every single piece in my closet right about now. Shop the collection here
