#MFW: Versace AW17

‘Love, courage, equality, Versace.’ Just a handful of words and slogans that were printed onto the clothing at Versace’s AW17 show. The message of unity and strength to women is one Donatella promotes regularly in her designs and executes boldly season after season. 

An electrifying array of colours were used in both fabrics and hair including red, blue and yellow. The striking shades danced in details actively whilst contrasting with deep hues of black and navy. 

Although the collection was heavily based on trends such as loud political statements and street culture, the Versace aesthetic remains unchanged: strong, bright and boldly feminine.

Couture Week: Atelier Versace SS17

We may not have received a runway show, but the Atelier Versace Couture SS17 collection is revealed in a breath-taking photo shoot which occurred on a marble staircase. The setting of the images reflects the colours and textures used in the clothing. 

The bottom of the dresses flare with fringed metallic thread and feathers, some are dipped in bright neon yellow The use of rope creates high structure but is softened by the way it hangs on the shoulders. The collection demonstrates the strength of women and the elegance of them, too.

Milan Fashion Week Day 3: Versace

“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. 

Hilarious Fashion Brand Defintions


Monday evening blog-post research for Molicia, often means losing myself through Tumblr, infinitely scrolling and thinking, ‘what was I supposed to be doing again?’. Today, however, my content-digging, okay… procrastination, lead me to Internet gold. Like one of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs discovering the jewels in the mine, I came across a hidden gem. 

‘How I see fashion brands’ by lizthefangirl.tumbr.com is Tumblr treasure. If this doesn’t cure any high-fashion fan’s Monday blues, I don’t know what will…

Valentino: so we want to channel royalty with some gilded details –

Dolce and Gabbana: [covered in gold foil] DID SOMEONE SAY GILDED

Elie Saab: [embroidering at super human speed] MORE SWAROVSKI CRYSTALS AND DETAILED-ASS PATTERNS

Zuhair Murad: YES BITCH LIKE BORDERLINE TACKY 

Balmain: [from halfway up the Kardashians’ asses] WHO THE FUCK JUST MENTIONED DETAILED-ASS PATTERNS AND BORDERLINE TACKINESS

Ralph & Russo: Oh my god stop

Giambastatuatsa Valala (Giambattista Valli): [deadpan] more tulle

Marchesa: More feminine

Gucci: More ruffles

Versace: Shut the fuck up Gucci no one likes ruffles they like sharp lines 

Armani Privé: [mouthing] yaaaasss

Dior: Patterns are in

Chanel: [smoking a cigarette, thick French accent] this is correct. Onto the dress we put one thousand very small Karl Lagerfeld faces, it is good, it is chic

Alexander McQueen: [sewing quietly, giving side-eye]

Jean Paul Gaultier: [snaps fingers] A HUMAN LAMP

Moschino: A HUMAN STAIRCASE FEATURING A NAME BRAND

Alexander Wang: [softly] a human

Stella Mcartney: stfu my dad is a Beatle all y’all bow down

Please note: These are not my true views, it’s just a humour post!
