Desert spring

Versace has always been about exploring different cultures, regions and periods and juxtaposing these with iconic brand codes. Inspired by the American Wild West, the pre-spring collection uses amber, sand, green and fire red to mimic desert tones.

It also introduces Barocca print and new-to-house Gianni Versace’s original signature. The new motif is found on dresses, denim, shirts and evening dresses, and is interpreted through embroidery, all-over-prints, and crystal embellishments.

Silhouettes show the house’s inherent sensuality.

A new sleeve is elaborated in dresses while exaggerated shoulders get their form from twisting and tying silk in bandana knots.

Looks include a crystal detail blazer paired with a crop top, wide-leg pants and pumps, and a pink suit matched with a yellow silk shirt and sneakers.

The collection is available at Versace’s recently reopened flagship store at Harbor City. Conceptualized by architect Gwenael Nicolas, the shop design echoes the golden tones of the brand and uses metallic structures to connect each space.
