LFW SS16: Versus Versace
Girl at the rock show
Anthony Vaccarello may very well be a long-lost relation of the Versace family. The daring flashes of skin, plunging necklines and sexy rock-and-roll vibe is so very Versace and while Vaccarello remains respectful to the spirit of Versus, his version is tougher, edgier and more aggressive. Vaccarello has hit his stride with Versus and the confidence is evident in his collection. She's got more of a punk spirit, and the risk of a nipple slip from low-cut necklines doesn't faze her one bit; she's comfortable in her skin. Even Donatella is a fan: after experimenting with Christopher Kane and JW Anderson, she now claims to have found "the one" (though she still remains friends with the exes, as Christopher Kane sat front row). And in keeping time with the young heart of Versace, Versus S/S'16 is already available for sale on their website and at select online retailers. Fashion's pace is quickening and Vaccarello's bringing the energy.
