The famous Italian fashion designer Donatella Versace has just presented her most anticipated Atelier runway show, again ensuring Versace royal sites in the fashion world. The unique silk-stocking persona of present-day twig reifies couture in multiple ways often controverting one another by demonstrating where the essence of heute lies. Titled “Tough ethereal”, the Atelier Versace Couture fall/winter 2015-2016 collection is all about a woman’s passions, representing her in two totally contradicting styles – bohemian and romantic on the one hand and sexy, kind of wild and modern on the other hand. Versace has constantly been acclaiming that her couture – that will be the hereafter – configures night! In recent seasons, we had the chance to ascertain the veracity of this viewpoint by her perfectly shaped hand-confected inapproachable garments she displayed in Versace couture fashion shows.
On Sunday night, she highlighted her new Atelier Versace Couture fall 2015 collection teaching her peculiar sight of a nightlife woman. The line takes in dresses in almost all rainbow colors with soft, subtle pastel toning. Sticking to tender graphics, Versace went deep into details creating most fabulous ensembles of chic V-neck blouses with skinny trousers ornamented with skin-showing guipure on sleeves and hips, matched with high-platform thin-laced sandals. A ‘70s touch was achieved by adding a strong detail to brave short sheath dresses combined with tall boots on high platforms in matching colors with the dresses. We have always been amazed by the incredible possibility of showing much skin and remaining so elegant and non-blatant at the same time. We guess that is what couture presupposes, and Versace gives the most exquisite clarification of this. The diversity of emotions consumed was achieved by the succession of daintiness of long flowing evening dresses and conciseness of shorter cocktail ones. The floral and leaf patterns set in the atmosphere of upcoming fall season with all its windy delicacy and freshness. The nice ribbon of flowery pattern that matched the fine lace of the dresses created some ethereal sense of a fairytale princess. The fray indefinite edges of dress fabrics made the collection whole and precise allowing the wearer to achieve the abysmal deep character of a mystery.
Modernity was another strong feature of the Atelier Versace fall 2015 line. For instance, the lilac dress with violet stripes and floral-leafy print, short in front and long and wide at the back set about that perfect character of a cover girl combining her audacious and, at the same time, mild gentle nature. This fresh, innocent brevity was kept in other items of the collection as well, like the rosy-violet short dress with an open shoulder and covered sleeves, the nude pastel dress with open V-neck and sophisticated, slightly shiny pattern. The gowns are nothing but luxury with the airy gracious touch of aristocracy.
After all the soft breezy pastel tones, the blacks of the line made a booming effect. The extremely bold exquisite look of short half-nude dresses, long, guipure-skirt transparent gowns prompted our excitement making a mouth-watering impression. And, the final shot of a true couture line was made by deluxe sumptuous feathery gowns showing off the models’ tall slender legs and leaving all us jaw-dropped and jealous.
Most famous celebrities and fashion icons in unimaginably beautiful appearances were adorning the first rows of the hall, but the honor of stars belonged to Versace’s slim models with such anticipated faces as Doutzen Kroez, Anja Rubik and Kendall Jenner. We are fully in love with the collection. Have your way on, Versace!
