Versus is the diffusion of noted Italian fashion house Versace. Versus Versace launches 2016 spring summer collection, the mood of this season is strong, urban and playful. Versus Versace’s creative director Anthony Vaccarelos focuses on a series of hand drawn prints featuring palms and pineapples aiming to induce the soul of LA, dotted with iconic Versace origins. The rhythm is most noticeable in zip-up bombers and sheer shirts to miniskirts and draped pants, as well as prints on faded denim jeans.
The collection features a variation of attitudes; Vaccarelos decorates and deconstructs. He manages so by tailoring with subverting men’s sleeveless blazer, or a women’s slim-cut black military coat. Salient essence of athleticism, a biker feel, especially the silver zipper down the front of a patent leather strapless dress adorned with hardware, all contribute to what spells out Versus.
Furthermore he manages to create provocative fluidity, with black sleevless gowns and ankle straps decorated with Versus’ silver lion heads, while for men leather sneakers rule.
As can be seen, a decorated and deconstructed attitude of contrasts, Versus Versace is pushing the brand to a new generation.
