From the safety pins holding some really short dresses to the flesh-revealing black dresses on display, the new Spring 2015 RTW Versus collection by Anthony Vaccarello served up erotic minimalism to the fullest.
Subtlety has never been the Versus style and true to form there were flashes of kinky brilliance and unabashed sexiness on display, the type that would make any woman look flaming hot. There were stretches of black used provocatively throughout the collection in original, yet simple statements. Like the low neck-lined halter dress with impossible high slits, or the very deep plunging v-shaped swinsuit on the flawlessly beautiful Malika Firth.
The Versace attitude was also present, with it’s roccoco prints splashed everywhere and the nod to Gianni’s iconic Greek key design in the form of asymmetrical trims on some truly sexy black short dresses that seemed to evoke the designers obsession with all things fiery and sexy. It was hard not to detect references to Donatella Versace’s love for rock and roll. The body conscious pieces that looked liked they had been taken apart and sewed back with safety pins holding them together was classic Donatella and as Suzy Menkes puts it, “a re-interpretation of the safety pins holding cloth over flesh that put Elizabeth Hurley on the global fashion map 20 years ago. ” Somehow, all these pieces seem to genuinely relate to what every young millennial craves for, fashion that is moderately priced, with cheeky details, and available now. Again, in true form, the entire collection is available on sale right now over at versusversace.com. See the rest of my favorite looks below of Versus Spring 2015 RTW.
