Press Releases
October 31, 2016

A new manifesto for Versus Versace – real attitude and a real wardrobe for a fresh generation. 


The tough authenticity of leather jackets is contrasted with the fresh femininity of pleat miniskirts, while a leather mini has its belt left provocatively loose. 


Cutaway dresses expose the shoulder and stomach with daring sexuality, heightened by its silver zip that runs defiantly down the back. 


Zip-up bombers are cropped, some with exaggerated collar, or oversized and belted, worn almost like a dress. 


Parachutes nylon coats with panels of scuba have fluidity and a utilitarian toughness, especially worn with a wide belt at the chest and scuba pants. 


Iconic metal mesh has been reborn, bonded over the hips of sporty scuba dresses, then shredded and destroyed for an uncompromising new mood. 


Metal mesh is used in innovative new ways, such as the metal mesh base of a double-layer tank, its nylon layer decorated with laminated metal mesh.


“This is about everything real. It’s about how the Versus Versace generation live their lives, and the wardrobe that gives them power.” Donatella Versace
