Versus Versace returns to London and their early rock'n'roll aesthetic.
On our minds is Versus Versace’s SS17 showcase, which this season returned to London and the label’s early day rock rebellion rooting back to its birth 20 years ago. “This is about everything real”, were Donatella’s words on the collection which was largely made up of wardrobe staple leather mini-skirts and jackets, ripped denim and zip-up bomber jackets in khaki and black. It was a celebration of millennial confidence and individualist flair, further emphasised by the club-like atmosphere, repurposed vintage parachutes turned nylon coats, and the employment of Central Saint Martin’s students to work on the collection.
