AFP/AP – Donatella Versace pumped energy into Milan Fashion week with a star-filled runway and front row, and collection strong on the fashion house’s codes: bright colours, safety pins and especially silky foulards.
The show opened with black suits and dresses with tiny flashes of colour in pins and foulards that peeked from hemlines and slits, the colours growing ever more bold until they burst into a vivid palette of pink, aquamarine, seafoam green, acid green and yellow.
The women’s silhouette exuded the confidence, with body-hugging dresses and skirts.
Footwear included wavy platforms shoes in bright satin.
Menswear was more relaxed, with floral suits, sportier varsity jackets with mesh tops, or bright leather jackets paired with tight latex T-shirts and jeans.
