Versus Catwalk Fashion Show Milan SS2011
The Versus collection we saw on Sunday was nothing you’d expect from Donatella Versace. The Versace Teatro was decorated by old playground equipment and the ground was covered with real grass and flowers.
The clothes matched the playground equipment in the sense that they had an ‘old’ feeling to them. At the beginning they had blue, yellow and red plaid prints and several skirts and dresses were below the knee.
After a while the plaid details were alternated by tiny flower prints and later by stripes and bright colors. Most designs were a mix of many different prints. Especially when the color blocking dresses appeared we could count at least seven different shades in one dress. The shoes, glasses and clutches matched exactly with the clothes since they had the same kind of prints all over them.
Backstage Christopher Kane told the press that most of the prints came from the Versus archives. He and Donatella just upped the colors and elongated the silhouettes. And we think they did a wonderful job!
