We are almost positive we have died and reached fashion heaven; at least where Versace is concerned. Those pieces that were worn as the gorgeous models glided down the catwalk for the Atelier Versace Couture spring/summer 2015 collection were positively dazzling, in reds, blues, whites and black sequined designs.
The pieces that Donatella Versace began the show with were highly glamorous, accentuating the curves of the body by keeping things rated below the X-level but still showing off enough skin to tantalize the senses and truly drive one mad. The dresses were all long, form-fitting and with waving cut-outs that showed off peels of skin. It’s as if the whole inspiration was brought about by use of a lemon zester. The message is simple; there’s a certain encouragement in developing confidence in one’s own sensuality, showing off parts of the body that normally stay covered up. Each dress literally does the signature Versace sucker-punch, which makes the whole Atelier Versace Couture spring/summer 2015 collection even more appealing. Donatella Versace has described this collection as being about cuts and the curves of a woman’s body. And in truth, it appears that there are no straight seams to be found in the whole of the series, each dominated with curved designs. Despite including daywear, the whole of the collection seemed to focus more on red carpet-worthy styling, with the hourglass curves on the gorgeous elongates silhouettes creating a vision of winding, undulating and sinuous lines.
Gorgeous black pantsuits which broke apart on one shoulder opened up the Atelier Versace Couture spring/summer 2015 collection, while we were all treated to youthful emoji-embroidered mini dresses with matching knee-length boots, as well as captivating evening gowns with swirling arabesque insets of nude mesh. With few that included beading, this line for the spring/summer seasons has its focus on the cut and the fit of each dress.
Model Natasha Poly presented the first of the collection at the haute couture show on Sunday night, showing off a rather intriguing pantsuit look that fit tight around the hips and want on to fall in a light manner to the floor. The suit jacket appear to be made of two different pieces, at least in terms of cut, with one side chic and sophisticated and the other cut out at the shoulder to reveal smooth skin, a defines collar and a section of the center right side of the chest. Definitely set the tone for the rest of the collection that was to be presented.
The pantsuits themselves are all incredibly tight at the waist, around the hips and the thighs, showing off your curves (or lack of them) with clear intent. Every edge of your hipbones will show, while you bare the top of a single breast along with your shoulder as you have a long sleeve on one side and more of a halter design on the other. The asymmetrical lines and curves are definitely to be applauded.
So typically gorgeous, with batching royal blue suede boots and a puffed A-line skirt, the royal blue full-skirt dress is spectacular in design and articulation of fluid imagination. The cut out at the shoulder over the longer sleeve compliments the sliver of skin that shows below the left bust, as well as the bare arm on the other side. The large belt brings the focus down to the center of the dress and allows the eye to enjoy the curving waves of royal blue fabrics.
Of course, we are treated to sequins as well, in the form of all types of dresses, particularly the red mini that has images that somehow remind us of the sea, curving sequin lines that bring the focus up to the chest, and matching sequin suede boots that certainly look just as amazing as the dress. It’s easy to imagine ourselves donning such pieces.
