"Brave, new and fresh" is how Donatella Versace descried her Spring/Summer 15 collection, shown in Milan today
It was an unexpectedly minimal approach taken by Versace for this collection, and a welcome change of pace for the brand.
The tricky conundrum as to how to make wearable clothes that look and feel expensive – at a time when their clients' lifestyles are increasingly casual – is becoming a challenge. Apparently, we must "Be bold with less." Said the fashion house's platinum haired leader... And that led to spring's template to go with. "I didn't look back. I tried to strip off all the unnecessary," she said during a preview, resulting in a chic and succinct edit, and entirely covetable at the same time.
