Versace SS19 Women's show at MFW

Floral prints reigned supreme

Versace SS19 Women's show at MFW Floral prints reigned supreme

Tonight at Milan’s Fashion Week it was time for Versace’s Women SS19 show, and it can be summed up in one word that perhaps isn’t the biggest surprise from Versace, print. But the types of print this season were a bit novel for the brand, with the focus being mainly on two things, tiled patterns, and flowers, lots and lots of flowers was the clear trend from Versace for the coming spring collection.

The range which consisted of 70’s inspired jackets, tops, skirts, and predominately dresses, used layering of fabrics such as satin with more or less see-through fabrics in combinations of various print. Animal prints were also heavily used, as was the trending snakeskin patterns on a few pants and jackets. Special attention needs to be given to some of the new sneaker designs by Salehe Bembury, which showed off an open, sandal-like version of his novel Chain Reaction design. 

Never one to shy away from the use of strong and vibrant colors this year was no excepting and Versace showed off a dazzling palette display. The big model names had been brought for the occasion, with Gigi, Bella, Kaia, Kendall, and Emily Ratajkowskii, all walking the show, which ended with an appearance of Shalom Harlow, a favorite of Gianni Versace, whose shows crystallized her and her peers as “the supers” in the 1990’s. 

See some of the highlights below, and watch the whole show on the Versace site.
