Versace Milan Fall 2014
Two words that aren’t often paired together are demure and Versace, but for Fall, the former perfectly describes the latter. Full of long-sleeved dresses with generous hemlines, plenty of pants, and myriad coats, this isn’t quite the Versace we’re used to! Gold details that are synonymous with the label, like buttons and heavy chain necklaces, made appearances, as well as flashy suede over-the-knee boots, and quite a few handbag silhouettes. Among the pieces that Donatella Versace is likely to wear, a black satin suit stands out. On the other hand, Lady Gaga might gravitate to a white dress with epaulettes and a decorated blue leather moto jacket layered over a flowing silk mini dress. Shoulder fringe aside, there were a few militaristic influences, like the button detail on a teal dress and Versace-fied medals of honor. Salute Donatella!
