Versace showed its Spring Summer 2011 line at Milan Fashion Week this past Friday. The show was also live-streamed via Facebook to over 200,000 fans. The collection featured bold colors and interesting cut outs; and emphasized the idea of opposites while playing with proportions. All this while retaining the sexy silhouette that has come to be recognized as a Versace signature.
The collection's pieces included fringework of varying lengths, macramé juxtaposed with rubber and shiny pvc on matte fabric. High waisted skirts contrasted with short jackets offers conservative coverage while displaying a line of flesh. According to Versace, the shoulder is the new erogenous zone and is featured prominently throughout the collection; unlike seasons past, the shoulders are softened! Prints feature the Versace Greek fret design, but it is used as a decorative device and not as a logo.
