Italy-ALSHARQIYA September 27: Nostalgia for the nineties was evident in the presentation of the Versace collection of ready-to-wear spring-summer 2022, which was presented in the framework of Milan Fashion Week. What is the story of the giant silk scarf that covered the entire runway?
The show was opened and closed by British singer, Dua Lipa, who has moved on from the modeling business, and featured famous models including Naomi Campbell and Gigi Hadid.
Designer Donatella Versace also drew inspiration from two iconic elements of her home's run: the printed silk scarf and the safety pin she has always used to decorate her outfits. The silk scarf was used in the implementation of many pieces of women's and men's fashion, and a giant scarf was used to decorate the entire runway, and the curtains were replaced with huge scarves that fell from the ceiling.
"The scarf is a staple of our House's heritage and part of its style," she said. "It sets the backdrop for our iconic prints and is transformable into a variety of outfits such as a shirt, gown, and pants to a headpiece and handbag. It's a way to add Versace style to any outfit. A look, and the scarf has been with us since the beginning of our brand, but this season it has become the focal point of our collection.”
The show began with a set of black looks that were adorned with various safety pins and combined classic cuts on one side with a youthful sporty character on the other. After that, Donatella used the prints that are usually carried out on scarves to transform them into dresses, suits, and trousers, some of which even adorned the house's name printed on them. This name was also repeated as a print that decorated the cotton T-shirt for the first time in the history of the house.
The leather materials that appeared in abundance in the collection were not only covered in black, but were also decorated with bright colors of pink, green, turquoise, and orange. She coordinated perfectly with colorful accessories that added a fun springtime touch to the look.
The color combinations came bold in this collection in line with the youthful nature of fashion. We saw perfect harmony between orange and pink, green and violet, turquoise and neon green... As for the end of the show, the models shone in colorful metallic outfits, while the models wore stark monochrome outfits before a series of black looks that She dedicates this event as one of the highlights of Milan Fashion Week for the upcoming spring and summer.
