my random musings, now in words.
The House of Versace. Everyone and everybody in the fashion world mourned over the death of Gianni Versace years ago, and as her sister steps up to revamp the image of Versace, many are doubtful. Why you asked? Not many people are as talented and as hardworking and passionate in fashion like Gianni. Naomi loves him, and also many of the souls from the world of glitz and glamour worship his designs. But nobody ever pictured that the House of Versace will be as successful, post-Gianni. However, Donatella Versace had certainly proved all the bloody souls wrong. At that point of time, Versace was stronger than ever, and the fresh ideas of Donatella was soon digested by the minds of fashion critics, and soon enough, Donatella was out of her brother’s shadow.
What i like about the Versace line is due to the fact that it is the epitome of sexiness. You cant never look like a seventy year old grandmama while wearing Versace. Even Hellen Mirren wore Versace in one of the Oscars shows, and she does not look near her age to me. (no offence 70 year old grandmamas out there.) Nobody, and i really mean NOBODY, can challenge the sexiness that Versace uphold since ages ago. None of them in the industry can challenge the image of I-am-sexy-but-not-slutty look made original by Donatella. And please do not let me brag about the silhouettes Gianni was famous for. He is a genius, and so is Donattela.
God knows how much i like to spend my days squinting my eyes to the computer screen to discover how amazing the details and the drapes are done for their Atelier line. The latest line, in my humble opinion, is the best so far.
I really love how Donatella mix the idea of a couture piece that have the essence of sexiness. I love how structures the cuttings are, and the boldness of the choice of color for this collection. I certainly could not wait for the future collection.
