Viva Versace

Leave it to Donatella to create a very sexy men's collection for Spring/Summer '09. I love the fact that she opened and closed the show with Halle Berry's boy toy Gabriel Aubrey. He is so beautiful, and made the show just that much better. But back on the clothes, the look was very tropical and very Milan. The whites and the light colours and even some pastels were very beautiful. I love the fact that her shirts are so thin that they just cling to the men's bodies without looking cheesy. I even love her use of the fringe-tipped scarves as decoration for the suits. This wasn't a collection that was ground breaking or different for men by any means, but that's the beauty of it. Most men (especially the straight ones) are not very daring with their fashion, so therefore, producing a men's collection can get very repetitive. But Donatella is commendable because she creates timeless pieces that could stay in a guy's wardrobe for many years. Another good thing about the Versace clothes was the fact that it appeals to any age group. Even though all the models were very young, you could still see the same suits on an old, balding guy. My only negative critique has to be those dreadful male purses that have been coming down every catwalk. Hopefully with the economic crisis, designers will stop producing this hideous accessory.

  1. I loved this collection too. Donatella has used Gabriel Aubry since FW2005 to open/closing her menswear line. What are your thoughts on The Versace Winter/Fall 2009/20010 line? BTW can't wait for Milan's next fashion week in May.

  2. Cool summer collection but you can also add Big Suit to your collection.
