“Sportswear is the future of fashion.” A statement made by Donatella Versace about the SS17 collection’s context. The aesthetic of the Italian fashion house is about the power of women and as always, was reflected in the show; 90’s supermodel Naomi Campbell made an appearance and the rest of the cast didn’t fail to impress either.
Nylon becomes sports luxe when combined with colourful leather jackets and knee-high lace sneaker-style boots. Collars are turned up to the jawline but there are still elements of the superhuman Versace woman with buckle-belted blazers and black wedges. Versace SS17 provides the chance to be any kind of woman you want to be in gracious pride.
