VERSACE FALL-WINTER 2024: SEEING THE ART IN DECONSTRUCTION

Sex appeal was no secret for the Versace FW24 - 25 collection. Giving off a rebellious spirit featuring a touch of playful punk and dark color spectrum, the show was about a good girl gone bad with a wild soul: prim but sexy, conservative but confident, rebellious but kind.

 

Taking on strong, formal identities, the collection showed disrupted tailoring, deconstructed print, and shredded Atelier Versace fabrics hand-woven as new materials. The inspiration behind the House’s power tailoring lies in being extreme as well as gender subversion, where masculinity in women’s was countered by femininity in men’s.

 

Looks like the structured bodice dress adorned with a sequined brown hue where the lower half draped at the hips embodied the confidence of the Versace woman. The use of ombre black sequins was also seen on brown cardigans and shorts.


The matching jacket-and-skirt sets were studded in unmissable gold buttons, and pieces like duster overcoats, prim spencer jackets, patented boots, side-slit gowns, and leopard-printed skin-tight bodysuits all exhibited the feel of power-dressing.

Sheerness was fancied on button-down shirts, turtlenecks, and dresses that were embellished in silvers and Versace’s ornate gold buttons and patterns.

 

A pop of rich lipstick red against the foundational black also imbued a punkish feel to the collection, mainly seen in looks like tweed co-ords, leather jackets, office-chic blazers, casual mohair cardigans, and animal-printed distressed knitwear.  The models with spiked hair and heavy eyeliner further embodied the wild and rebellious nature of this time’s collection.

 

For the men’s look, playfulness was brought to the collection through sheer cropped tops, clean gray blazers, tweed overcoats, boldly printed garments, fur-laden jackets, and sexy striped button-up tops meshed with leather and mesh. Given that the collection played with the idea of a good girl with a wild heart and her shy genius soulmate, the menswear incited a feeling of quiet rebellion that simultaneously embraced glamour.

 

With an illusional backdrop that reflected the collection’s considered wildness, the runway included many distinguished models including Gigi Hadid, Mona Tougaard, Liu Wen, and He Cong as well as TikTokers like Elevator Boys’ Jacob Rott.
