Versace *officially* signals the end of Fashion Month, with a star-studded show
Dua and Elton. Paris and Pam. Cher and Miley…I mean?! Versace opted for a celebrity-heavy city to show its Fall Winter ’23 collection in, and local and far-flung A listers alike rewarded the brand for that choice. Speaking of stellar names, Donatella’s runway casting also blew every other label out of the water this season, by sending the likes of Gigi Hadid, Stella Maxwell, Kendall Jenner, Irina Shayk, Naomi Campbell, Imaan Hammam, Liu Wen, and Emily Ratajkoski down the runway. As for the wares, Donatella looked to the archives for her jumping off points. Ditto: her late brother’s mastery of fit and fabric, in a collection that was ultimately a celebration of the human form and one mid-90s collection in particular too (Atelier Versace SS ’95). After all, “the understanding and appreciation of the body” that has always been at the heart of the Italian label. This leant itself to precious across the board; whether seen on sharp tailoring, structural busts, or peplums; the thoroughly modern reuse of vintage Versace prints and hues; or indeed the strong offering of eveningwear that—if you ask us—might just appear up on a red carpet closeby in a mere few days’ time. All eyes on Los Angeles!
