The look Versace’s fiercely tailored collection combined Germanic austerity with New Wave Berlin patterns.
Key pieces The collection served up double-breasted overcoats, formal shirts and ties, long-line quilted leather biker jackets, tailored gilets worn over coats and suit jackets, turtle-neck sweaters layered beneath patterned crew-neck jumpers, an asymmetrically- zipped blouson with notched collar, jumpers in 3D textured knits and skinny leather trousers.
Colours Black, steely industrial greys and camel punctuated with electric blue, brick red and a flash of hot pink. Monochromatic optical patterns were used in technical and engineered knits.
Commercial appeal Versace’s autumn look feels fresh and minimal, but is oddly sexless compared with the Don Draper-inspired sharp-suited trend.
