Versus – MFW SS13
I like Versace but I really dislike Christopher Kane so why did I find myself liking this duo’s latest Versus collection?
My outsider view on the runway:
Time to hit up Carnival?
WOW that is this creation I see before my eyes? Full on caribbean style fusions mixed with Kanes abrsact designs. I fail to see much of Versace in this collection, I see more of Kane, just with added colours. Maybe the colours were Donatella?
Anyway, as much as I dislike Kane. He worked really well with this Versus collection. The bright fuschia pink splashed mixed with kitsch plastic costume jewellery necklaces and hemlines just added a sense of POW!
The striped numbers and the string vest tee’s were all reminiscent of carnival, just in a more ‘put together’ way. It was more chic than urban chic, if that makes sense. Sixties flower pattern pyjama pants are probably the best i’ve seen on the runway so far as they don’t look ‘overly 60’s throwback’. They actually look original and unique.
Some of the prints and patterns were 100% Kane and I wasn’t feeling them, but the overall cute and funky chainmail infusions were right up my street.
Not 100% but I can see great things emerging in this duo’s collaboration!
