Versace AW18 at MFW

Aptly set at Milan's Royal Palace, Versace celebrated rock & roll royalty for Autumn/Winter '18. Inspired by the Gianni Versace: Rock and Royalty book, a the true manifesto of modern Royalty, and the fusion of fashion and music, Queen Donatella presented a cornucopia of colour for the kings and queens of rock & roll.

There was plenty of classic Versace sass and sexiness in this collection, with lots of logomania for the die-hard fans. What was different here was the punk references: studs, buckles, tartan, leather, and lashings of clashing colour and print. This is a side of Milanese fahsion we don't usually see!

Our favourite looks were those in a bold purple and yellow tartan, including a skinny city suit and pleated ultra-mini dress; giving us Clueless vibes but with a punky edge.

For eager buyers, the brand offered up endless it-accessories, including- but not limited to- yellow tinted sunglasses, oversized logo scarves, colour blocking berets, adorable miniature chain handbags, sparkling tinsel boots, and gold coin earrings (the new currency on the market is Versace don't you know).

Models also wore chic, tightly wrapped headscarves that skimmed and slimmed the silhouette, allowing the loud, bold and brilliant clothes to shine without distraction.
