When different tribes, places and cultures come together, it is a plethora of archetypes that connect their separate identities with one another seamlessly. Versace celebrates the diversity and positivity it brings from the different backgrounds in the latest Fall/Winter 2017 collection.
Dramatised outerwear of long, knitted coats and tailored coats harmonise with nylon trenches with double-length belts that are light and dynamic in volume, while the wild spirit of the shearling coats delve into the beauty of African textiles upon jacquard coats, hand woven like blankets or graphic sweaters. On the other hand, suits are refreshed and lightened with strong silhouettes that fit neatly to the body with a soft construction on the shoulders.
Hand-painted patterns of an ancient tribe and photographic prints of classic sculptures aspire the idealistic beauty of masculinity and the power it brings, whereas affirming messages of hope inspire upon embroidered shirts and nylon zip-ups, as well as sewn inside coats.
In terms of accessories, the hiking sneakers punctuate the collection’s silhouette with energising shapes, giving traditional detailing a modernised technical sole. The iconic Empire bag marks the collection with hand-painted motifs, while the new Palladian bag debuts in a neat, compact and versatile style.
