Atelier Versace Couture Fall 2014
Atelier Versace kicked off the Couture season yesterday, and Donatella Versace‘s latest was seeped in glamour, but that of a tailored sort. Her first look was a woolen rounded shoulder jacket paired with a wrap skirt that was fairly subdued, save for a panel of sheer boning at the waist. This subtle nod to the art of tailoring ran through the collection writ large. Another important detail throughout the show? The art of deconstruction. Ball gowns were paired down to a bustier and a voluminous silk skirt that didn’t quite make a full circle. Then, there was the evening dress slit to the waist, revealing some trou underneath, or the white dress with a sparkly bodice that seemed pieced together by only a few strips of fabric. On the beauty front, things were quite put together, including a strong cat-eye and a slicked back chignon-ponytail hybrid. Other polished flourishes included leather gloves, or a single dangling earring. Donatella’s take on tailored works wonders in our book.
