VERSACE - Spring 2013 RTW

The Versace woman has always been a creature of consummate self-control, a perfectly polished testament to the craft of the makeup artist, the hairdresser, and the designer who clothes her. So it was rather wonderful today to see that woman cram herself into a pickup with a gang of her girlfriends and head for the desert, Queens of the Stone Age blaring, with a shoulder bag of crinkled tie dyed silks and because she is a V-Girl, after all some heeled gladiators and a grunge goddes gown. But only if that's tie dyed too.

Donatella's been riding a high-low wave since the coincidence of her collection for H&M and the reintroduction of Atelier Versace. Today, Donatella remodeled Versace for the Coachella set. "Tailoring with a lingerie edge" was the anodyne inspiration claimed by the show notes. There were a few jackets, the oversize kind that are popularly known as boyfriend jackets, but they paled beside the lacy tops and they were definitely more tops than dresses which, with their crinkles and slashes and low slung belts, had the carefree sensuality of festival gear. The casual almost nudity of slashed and laced skirts and slipdresses fitted right in. They demanded concentration, or luck to avoid the kind of wardrobe malfunction that popped out at least once on today's catwalk.
