DEFINING LOOKS 

The Medusa Safety Pin makes its return in a new and contemporary way. The Safety Pin dress that introduced the rock n’ roll attitude to red carpet attire, is reintroduced with the famous Medusa and new pin-clip fusion gold accents that both conceals and reveals; scrunching fabric together to create contemporary silhouettes.

PRINTS AND BAROCCO  

An explosion of prints celebrates Versace’s Italian roots on the New York runway. Designs that are iconic to the house are mixed in the boldest combinations–zebra stripes and stars intertwined with gold. The ‘Voyage Barocco’ print is incorporated into a melting pot of colour palettes weaved together with Versace’s most quintessential motifs–the Greek Key and Barocco.

HEART ON YOUR SLEEVE 

The ‘Love Versace’ heart print is inspired by Jim Dine’s designs for Gianni Versace’s New York townhouse. The colourful hearts are printed on silk chiffon that forms one of Versace’s most legendary silhouettes–long sleeves and naval low-cut front–made famous by Jennifer Lopez.
