Atelier Versace

Spring-Summer 2014 – By experimenting with classic shapes and adding a feminine twist to traditional male tailoring, Donatella Versace created a Haute Couture collection that oozed sexual appeal.

Although the colour palette, a lively combination of neon brights, pastels, monochrome and metallics, felt anything but uniformed,  the recurring sequin embellishment provided a sense of consistency within the collection.

When comparing this collection to the others showcased so far this year, the combination of unique hood shapes, draped tailoring and deep plunge suit jackets make it, ironically, incomparable.

Yet, the ladylike pastels, intricate sequin detail and luxurious fabrics all come together to create a collection that screams ‘high fashion’. By daring to be different with an inconsistent colour palette, updating old silhouettes with new ideas and finishing it all off with a heavy sequin embellishment, this unique collection proved to be the ultimate lesson in power dressing.
