Versace Ready To Wear Spring Summer 2017 Milan
A sporty siren moves sinuously down the Versace catwalk. "Sportswear is the future of fashion, the real challenge is to create a sport that is comfortable and glamorous." explains Donatella Versace, "we need to have the courage to abandon the past. I am ready to make that leap." A tribute to the Empress of working out.
On the front row, Serena Williams. On the catwalk, another cast of stars, the Instagram queen Gigi Hadid, Adriana Lima, Caroline Trentini, Carmen Kass, Mariacarla Boscono and Naomi Campbell, just to ensure no one skipped a beat. Iconic girls tucked between goddesses of the catwalk and social media. Flying down the runway in jackets crafted out of parachute material and jumpsuits for sporty heroines, wearing utilitarian sandals and high heeled lace up boots with soles in high tech materials. From reinvented tailoring to crisp nylon to sharpen up the silhouette, in deep dark tones which made their debut at the label's latest menswear show. Cleverly placed drawstrings to accentuate movement, audacious black hues, chequered prints like racing flags. The new light weight metallics which break up the short dresses similar to those worn by nymphs in the ancient arena: the Olympics and Olympians.
