Yesterday in new York held a screening pre-collection Versace autumn/winter 2019. On the podium this evening Irina Shayk, Emily Ratzkowski, Gigi Hadid, Kaia Gerber, which was nominated for the title “model of the year”, and many others. There was no shortage of guests at the star — collections of this Italian brand are always in demand among celebrities. So, among the guests was Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Blake lively, Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus, who began again to go out after the birth of a child, Paris Jackson and many others.
The show aroused interest for several reasons: fashion critics looked to a reasonable possible change in Versace after the brand was acquired Michael Kors, and local fashionistas rejoiced at the first fashion show of the Italian brand in new York.
Some reorientation to a new audience, indeed, happened. Of display pre-collection 2019 Versace seems to have made a kind of benefit in the style of “the Best, favourite and only for you.” There came the retelling of favorite stories of the brand like the legendary dress with safety pins or chiffon outfit with a plunging neckline, which became a cult thanks to Jennifer Lopez and also sets of vinyl mini-skirts and crop tops. Familiarity with a colorful heritage of Versace alternated panels of more subdued images with black jackets, plain dresses and t-shirts printed “I love New York”.
To prepare for future winter is necessary, obviously, again, the mix of patterns, high contrasts, colour furs. Animal prints also are not going anywhere.
