Milan Fashion Week: Versace autumn/winter 2012/13 collection

For spring/summer 2012 Donatella Versace (in my eyes) can do no wrong. I was mesmerised by her brilliant aquatic ‘under the water’ theme and hypnotised by beautiful brights, sea prints and sheer pieces.



For autumn/winter 2012/13 however the designer has decided to switch t0 goth glam. Models skulked down the runway in velvet, stark black clothing with embossed crucifixes, studs and leather materials whilst fishnet thigh-high and knee-high boots (in the same style as tights) came with a whole new seam down the front of the leg.

Donatella threw caution to the wind as she noted that her collection was “a sexy rock vibe against a backdrop of dark seduction”. She wasn’t wrong as this is what I imagine women wearing if we were all were cast in a role as sexy seductresses in Blade Trinity.

Sequin jumpers, leather skirts and dresses and velvet concoctions all embossed or hand printed into the clothing. There was also a selection of chain mail, biker jackets and alligator coats with fringing fur on the shoulders and arms, with dashes of sunshine yellow, bright orange and neutral tones; some pieces were even stitched to produce a Frankenstein effect on dresses. However, the real predator of the night will be the woman adorning these sexy pieces come autumn…
