Editorial

The first Versace men’s show since the brand was acquired by Michael Kors Holdings stayed resoundingly close to the brand’s tradition. If anything, the clothes on the runway further underlined the bondage iconography that Gianni had such fun with in the early ’90s. Firstly, there was lots of black leather and harnesses were printed onto T-shirts and silk shirts, some in sinful red, while knits and coats were decorated with safety pins. Secondly, there were lots of logos, some used alongside Ford branding in pop colours on outerwear, neon feathers used to trim blazers, other iconic all-over prints on tracksuits, boxer shorts peeking out from under trousers, little gold chains and necklaces – all of it accessorised the black blazers in the finale. It was still very Versace.
