“It’s a little bit crazy, because I feel like this is such an iconic show to walk in”, said Cindy Crawford’s 16-year old daughter Kaia Gerber backstage before the Versace show. And she sure was right about that. As soon as Donatella Versace and her 90’s supermodel squad (including Carla Bruni, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer and Helena Christensen) set foot on the catwalk the Versace show went viral. What a way to remember the fashion creative we lost twenty years ago. “A genius . . . an icon . . . my brother”, as Donatella stated.

And besides the supermodel reunion of women who walked the Versace show over two decades ago the SS2018 collection was of course filled with references to Gianni Versace’s designs. The prints came straight from the key prints in the Versace archives from the beginning of the nineties. Prints Donatella used on blouses, strong shouldered jackets, high waisted jeans, trenchcoats, maxi skirt, leggings and corsets. Accessorized with the fanny packs, caps and statement jewelry that pulled everything together.

Now we shouldn’t necessarily review this collection like we do others. Instead, we should see it as it was intented, an ode, a celebration of everything Gianni stood for. Designs that stand the test of times with a certain sexiness/coolness that makes the brand ‘hot’ even after all those years. Still, those pastel colored looks appeared highly desirable. And the rich styling (cross earrings, brooches and patches) certainly looked appealing. Then again, how could any item not look stunning shown by the likes of fashion favorties Gigi, Kendall and model newby, who’s now making all the headlines, Kaia.
