Versace resort 2019


Apparently Donatellamamamia has a large design studio and each dedicated group of designers was given the spotlight in this collection. To say that this is an odd collection is like saying la Signora is a natural beauty.

Perhaps it is the styling, perhaps it is the proportion, perhaps it is the been there done that aura or maybe some of it is just plain bad fashion.

I thought we passed the era of tee shirts under strapless tops and dresses but apparently not at casa Versace, so the Versace signature tailoring may be present and accounted for but alas look at how it was represented….  Scary no? The supposedly sexy leathers look a tad overworked, heavy handed and perhaps clumsy.

Let move on to the supposed “archival” segment which in a moment of understatement might be seen as cacophonous. More is better has always been a part of the brand except Donatellamamamia takes it to new heights with the over patterned, over mixed  dizzying combinations and the extrapolations from Gianni’s archive. Un poco moderazione might have served the collection better than the over the top blinding combinations.

What i found most appealing were the brightly colored knits which looked alarmingly fresh for this brand as well and the much simpler dresses with a minimum of logomnia. What was also most appealing were the handbags which while the fringed ones might have been a bit “referenced” were especially appealing as well as the quilted possibilities.

What I will never understand are the rapper denims, the clunky shoes  and her need to think she does the brand any service by consistently pushing those concepts. By far this was not her worst outing but hardly award winning.
