Versace’s sensual nymphs take over Paris Haute Couture week

Donatella Versace left behind the in-your-face sexiness, primary colors and bold logos of her previous couture collection in order to explore for fall 2015 the softer and more romantic side of Versace. The collection was an ode to the classic Renaissance iconography, with some of the models giving the impression that had just escaped from a Botticelli painting, combined with a big dose of rock-and-roll edginess and 70’s glamour, accentuated by the use of The Doors as the runway soundtrack.

Donatella showed and a series of impressive silk chiffon gowns made of bespoke floral cut threads, adorned with embroidery, feathers and chain mail details, which left the fashion crowd speechless. Some designs featured intricately made sculptural bodices that were evoking bird cages, flirting indirectly with Surrealism. The lightly deconstructed, asymmetrical gowns and skirts, all featuring strategically placed skin-bearing cutouts, were flowing effortlessly around the models’ bodies, transforming them into sensual nymphs that don’t take no for an answer.

On the other hand, a series of short, lacy dresses, elegant and sexy at the same time, accompanied by a series of patent leather platform boots, seemed to be the perfect choice for an open air summer festival, bringing a youthful energy to the collection. The hairstyle and makeup was in perfect harmony with the designs, featuring loose, romantic waves, smoky eyes and some marvelous leafy crowns that stole the spotlight. The entire collection was inspired by the purity of the orchids: the palette, in tones of purple, pink, peach, pale green and yellow, had a flowery feel to it, while the runway was made of transparent Perspex, with 25,000 orchids in various compositions hidden under it.

I call the collection tough, but ethereal at the same time,” Donatella Versace said backstage after the show. “I wanted to explore the softer side of the Versace woman,” she explained about the inspiration hidden behind her amazing collection, stating that some of the gowns had taken more than five hundred hours of work to make. This is definitely haute couture, and we couldn’t expect nothing less from Versace!
