ATHLETIC COUTURE

“I move to the beat of my own drum, I sing to my own melody.” These were the lyrics pulsing at Donatella Versace’s 2016 Spring/Summer Couture show in Paris. Oh how fitting these words were! The empowered modern day female was expressed through crisp white pant-suits, plunging necklines and skin baring cutouts. Daring strikes of bold color emphasized the risky nature, while knotted accents and buckled straps exuded strength. The collection bearded influence of Gaultier's

unforgettable futuristic looks from the movie The 5th Element. Versace was able to fuse these impregnable components with her familiar goddess silhouettes. The structured looks were softened with silky textures and star-like jeweling, creating the ultimate balance of feminine power. This is yet another collection that speaks volumes of the designers understanding of emotion evoking color play and attention to detail.
