Vunk! This will become the new word of the fashion dictionary – punk style mixed with the sex symbol of Versace.
Versace literally nailed it this season. The manner of turning punk into something vunk was beyond perfection. All items – mink skirts, tight fitted vinyl pants, and nail dresses – were convincing enough for any women who loves to take risks. There were elements of Gianni’s past work except they were modernized for today’s glamour chicks. It seemed Donatella wanted to be original…….and she was.
Lately, there have been negative buzzes of people commenting how awful this collection was. Really? It seems they don’t quite understand where the authentic DNA of this brand falls. I wonder what was awful for them, because for me this was extravagant, energetic, and revealing – typical of Versace. What was the surprise? Too much Vunk in your face?
If they ever asked me to describe this collection in one word it would be vinyl. It may sound dirty for some, but boy did Donatella know how to make this fetish fabric sexy and wearable. She added some plaid to some of the dresses and skirts, but I never remembered them extremely vividly as I did with her vinyl. Suits had no button, for nails closed the deal (don’t mess with me). I could go all day watching the models wearing those designs in various colors – white, black, purple, and yellow – which screamed party.
A yellow mink coat was one of my favorite outerwear pieces. I was intrigued by its unique tipard (tiger and leopard) print. Fun and deceiving. Another that made the list was a yellow mink skirt I will be rooting for someone to wear soon. Will it be you?
Accessories were another big hit here. Spiked chokers and necklaces seemed painful, but wanting. Nail earrings seemed daring and could become the next must have accessory of the season.
For evening, slits, spikes, and vinyl portrayed the sexual vunk. Cara Delevinge ported an intense red number with spiky pride. A purple evening dress wrap around with nails was striking. Karmen Pedaru in a white vinyl slit dress was too high we could even notice her underwear. The last two models finished Donatella’s glorious triumph. She took her bow like the queen she is……….in vinyl pants.
