Runway Closeup: House of Versace

Anyone else tune in to House of Versace on Lifetime this past weekend? We did and were pleasantly surprised by the network’s portrayal. From the edgy, sex-infused styles that brought life to the Milan fashion scene under Gianni’s reign of the 1990s, to the new vision of Donatella after his tragic death, Versace is a powerhouse that continues to send breathtaking designs down the runway.

In honor of the Italian-based fashion house, we thought now would be a perfect time to catch up on Versace of 2013. Check out these gorgeous looks from Atelier Versace’s Fall/Winter 2013 and Spring/Summer 2014 collections as we pay homage to the iconic designer.

Fall/Winter 2013

This collection had a very minimal color palette, focusing on darker shades typical of fall and winter season such as black, burgundy and navy. While the classic shapes and S&M inspiration of leather and harness tops were a throwback to Gianni’s days in the house, Donatella added her own modern touches with pops of leather, lace and metallics.

Spring/Summer 2014

While the dust has yet to settle on the runways of Milan Fashion Week S/S 2014 which ended mere days ago, Versace’s new collection has us anticipating the arrival of next year’s trends. Although black and leather maintained a presence within the collection, brilliant whites and splashes of brights and pastels such as lilac and yellow were the focal point. Flowing and futuristic shapes with metallic and feathered accents made the gowns showstoppers, as always.

So what do you think? Do you think Donatella is doing a good job of carrying on Gianni's legacy?
