The Versace woman conquers the urban jungle this summer.
Utility jackets are the new daywear essential.
Platform heels with a rubberised sole are fastened with safety buckles, while platform sandals come embellished with sequins and frayed chiffon.
Masculine tailoring is feminised by a darted, elegantly sculptured waist.
Energised animal prints clash and contrast with the attitude of the street, with acid leopard and zebra prints often combined in the same look.
Toughened luxury comes from a laminated boucle jacket with fringed edges of silk chiffon.
Fil coupe animal print dresses are tied as if spontaneously at the shoulder and hip, while lace gives the effect of animal print against the skin.
A new pinstripe appears and fades as if it pulses, on a tailored jacket tied at the waist, or a slashed front dress that’s tied at the shoulder and edge.
“This is a collection for the way women live their lives today, mixing tailoring with sportswear and effortless glamour.” comments Donatella Versace.
