fall collezioni, milan: versus

by Jeremy Danté

strict style & a dark palette allow the versus collection to thrive in it’s youthful approach to fashion design. with a perfect balance of flash & depth, the collection is gradual in it’s release of metallic triangular patterns, that really taps into a surprising direction of creativity which could only be credited to christopher kane. kane was picked by donatella versace to design the versus collection, which is, literally, the sister collection to the versace mainline. the versus collection was notoriously designed by donatella while the versace mainline was designed her brother gianni, whom created the versace label in 1978. when gianni was murdered in 1997, the house of versace rested in the creative grips of donatella who has a wildly successful run succeeding her older brother. the versus collection has been one of the most anticipated in my book. christopher kane is an incredible design in his own right & to combine his genius with that of donatella’s is one of the best collaborations in modern day fashion. here we see a much more developed collection than the last two seasons, being that presentations were used as the main vehicle present the collections. structure & caged element were outstanding elements of the collection & im still waiting to christopher kane really flex his design muscle with these collections. this is just the tip of the iceberg.
