It’s time to liberate yourself from all sorts of stereotypes about elegance, beauty and styles. At least this is what Donatella Versace is trying to do with her new liberal Versace spring/summer 2014 collection, unveiled at Milan Fashion Week yesterday. As she modestly says she is liberating the Versace woman. “Usually we give them clothes that are very tight to the body but this time they are much more languid – they caress the body.” She is also giving the Versace girl more creativity and self-confidence.
The Versace spring/summer 2014 collection is inspired from the street life and its limitless variety of options, where you see catwalk-like situations every minute. The ordinary and comfy fabrics are just made to form the image of the carefree stroller or the cool swagger. Mostly black, white and some blue and indigo tones create a party mood, and will surely make the street an open air pub for those who just want to enjoy and have fun of every second of life.
The first look of the Versace spring 2014 runway show was a grayish, almost black denim jacket combined with an indigo skirt. The big, antique belt completes the look giving the model a self-reliant and free image. The jacket itself would be totally comfortable and cool for a brave and dashing motorcyclist. It would even be just fine to create a vampire look for Halloween, or to be the lead singer in a rock group.
The other looks of the Versace spring/summer 2014 collection have a bit more classiness. The see-through shirt with a tight black skirt is not a bad idea for business parties. The skinny pants worn with a loose black shirt are ideal to have a nice evening walk in the most audacious parts of the city. The white looks from the new Versace collection are appealing and lovely. You can even find some red carpet luxurious looks in the show that will surely make you stunning and dazzling.
As the fashioner claims, she wanted to give a status of luxury to ordinary things. Well, one thing is sure Donatella Versace can create extravagant looks from the most common shapes and fabrics.
