Donatella Versace has had enough, and makes it clear for Spring/Summer’19: “IT’S VERSACE, NOT VERSACHEE!” The brand’s name has been butchered by non-Italians for years now, so the designer finally retaliates by splashing the statement across bags and garments in tabloid print for clarification.
Contrast is the major theme for the Versace man this Spring/Summer’19. Traditional sartorial jackets are matched with baggy denim jeans. Lace, sheer, neon and florals are presented in a masculine manner. The women’s Icon shoulder bag makes an appearance. The looks are finished with sandals or an updated edition of the Chain Reaction sneakers, resulting in a mash-up of street-style star, high-fashion man and boardroom executive — a man in the centre of all attention.
