Donatella Versace is taking playful sister line VERSUS in a new direction: working with different designers and artistic talents to produce one-off capsule collections. After Christopher Kane and J.W.Anderson, Anthony Vaccarello’s capsule collection for VERSUS is a provocative and rebellious statement and by far one of the best.
Those who love the explosive and structured sex appeal of Versace have enjoyed Sunday night’s VERSUS Spring/Summer 2015 by Anthony Vaccarello. The best part is that the collection is already available via NET-A-PORTER.COM. Almost exclusively in black and white, punctuated with touches of gold, the show started with femme fatale dresses with provocative cuts that reveal the thighs, cleavage and precise tailoring with broad shoulders. Certainly a retro collection, but the ability of the young Belgian designer to create perfectly cut dresses made it a full success.
“I love Anthony, so authentic and young! ” said Donatella Versace, while posing with Rihanna.
Beauty wise Pat McGrath explained that the task for her and hairstylist Guido Palau, was to “enhance” each girl’s unique, natural beauty.
Guido, Redken Creative Consultant, enhanced each model’s natural hair texture, whether wavy or straight, using Redken’s new Wind Blown 05 dry finishing spray. While the look may not be exactly the same for each model, the naturally undone look created an overall cool, sexy feeling on the runway.
“This sense of individuality was inspired by the Versace ads from the mid-90s and how the girls were captured for who they were, not what they were made into. Each model had a very natural, undone style, but each was slightly different depending on the model’s hair type and length. I added texture and lift at the roots with a generous amount of wind blown 05, and left the part messy and natural. Then, to add a bit of modernity and richness, I lightly sprayed Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist all over the hair at the end to give it a nice sheen, which played up the sexiness of the collection.” Guido Palau
