The Versace SS18 fashion show was a tribute to the genius of Gianni Versace, who ruled fashion in the 90es and tragically died 20 years ago.
Donatella, his sister and current creative director of the brand decided to stage the show at Milan’s Triennale Museum and to take some inspirations from the brand’s
The collection was designed around 12 key print themes created by Gianni: Andy Warhol, Vogue, My Friend Elton, Icons and more.
From each theme Donatella re-created some new pieces, changing silhouettes and shapes: square-shouldered jackets, maxi skirts, high-waisted jeans.
But she also incorporated in the collection some archive pieces, like the black-and-white ball skirt worn originally by Naomi Campbell in the Native American collection.
Everyone on the audience was nearly to tears when the amazing models quintet made by Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Carla Bruni and Helena Christensen took the catwalk for the finale, on the notes of George Michael’s “Freedom! 90”.
Gianni Versace was a fashion genius who knew how beauty and vulgarity can be linked, but Donatella was smart enough to understand how to respect his identity and give to the brand new ideas.
