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.
