Versace Fall 2010

The sound of motorbike engines revving before the Versace Fall 2010 presentation was a clear indication that this show was going to come at us hard and fast.

It was so fast that the pictures I took were nothing but a blur as the model stormed the runway.

The biker influence was evident in the first half of the presentation as models were kitted out in leather jackets, suede pants with leather panels and plenty of zippers.

The Versace gowns had a futuristic feel to them with geometric metallic panels, but they still retained the signature high splits and multiple cut-outs.

As the models stormed the runway one person sprang to mind. Kate Hudson.

Her body would look outstanding in these looks. She would equally do justice to the many mini dresses presented.

Like the gowns they had metallic geometric panels plus fringed details which worked both the futuristic and biker theme.

I especially liked the finale silver strapless dress with the fringed skirt.

It wasn’t all about sexy dresses.

Donatella also presented turtlenecks, sweater dresses, wool coats, furry gilets and a tuxedo jacket as worn by Freja who has the most controlled confident walk of all the models I’ve seen this fashion week.

Versace finale’s are always interesting.

This season the mirrored panels which separated the room lifted skyward to reveal the models perched on podiums or standing on the stage.

    Hooonestly.. I didn’t like it at all. I’ve just seen so so much better from Versace that this looked rather boring. And it didn’t look very fashion forward either. The gowns with metallic panels reminded me of an old Versace collection (actually they were rather copied).
    I expected a lot more.

    it is a gorgeous collection and with most versace collections filled with bright colours. my only fear is those gowns will end up being worn by trashy people like j lo, blake livley and “lady” gaga

      Blake Lively isn’t so trash! Maby Lady Gaga (but in an artistic way) but Blake is ok. No?

        personally i think she is, she wears clothes that show off way too much cleavage and far too much leg at the same time, which is find slightly trashy. but each to their own.

    awful collection, the designs look dated and tacky.

    I’m not really crazy about this collection and I don’t know who could successfully wear the gowns, but the silver fringe and the blue-yellow-black mini next to it would look fabulous on fabulous Fergie.

    • Fashion Critic March 1, 2010 at 23:02 #

      Fergie is a very good candidate.

      As like Hudson she has the legs for those minis

    the orange and royal blue is rich and breathtaking, i luv the cutout details of the white and the concept of the fourth look on the first row.
