This collection looks not at the Versace Man, but to the Versace Men. It represents a next step and move forward, not focusing on the singular but on multiplicity, progression, and diversity – exactly what I see valued by the new generation and the way they express their masculinity. – Donatella Versace
As Donatella said when asked about this latest menswear collection, it’s all about progression and diversity – which is what we should collectively as humanity embrace in 2022 and into 2023. It is high time we started recognizing individuality and celebrating it as a collective. One of the most exciting things about fashion is it lets us show the world who we are as individuals simply by what we choose to wear each day. We can communicate visually how we are feeling that day or how we feel about ourselves in general.
Additionally, the little details like a gold and pearl bobby pin or our choice of Versace Eros over a Dior scent signal how we want to be perceived by others. The devil is in the details, and every day we get to decide what kind of devil is on our shoulders. Keep expressing your individuality and embracing your progression and the world.
“Typically sartorial pinstripe and checks have a painterly finish, as if hazily drawn in pastel or watercolor across voluminous suit pants and unlined jackets. Wool jacquard knitwear and formal coats reimagined in brushed wool, cashmere, and silk blends revel in hand-feel. Bright, positive colors of cerise, pink, and orange are worn as solid blocks of color, while the brand’s heritage ornate prints are honed, rendered as stenciled bicolors like the new Barocco Silhouette. La Greca continues as a brand monogram, interplayed through cable knit sweaters and vivid lurex cardigans. Shoes and accessories encapsulate the collection’s proposal of modern opulence; with wide totes and belt bags in soft grained leather which molds to the shape of the body, and structured options in brushed leather. Subtle La Greca print emboss, ‘V’ motif finishes, and the line’s new hardware are a refinement of brand codes, while the La Greca Signature line in a new gray colorway is finished with a crisp white logo.” – from Versace
