It’s fit for people who wish to express themselves with attitude.

Whether or not your aim is to look play the role with elegant flair, Versace has the selections for you. For the latest collection presented in Los Angeles, Hollywood’s energy, glamour, and power are the reference points for this collection.

Atelier Versace’s craftsmanship and construction inform the silhouette. Dresses with folded structural busts, fluted necklines, and rounded shoulders all reference the Atelier Versace Spring-Summer 1995 collection. Signature Versace straight-shouldered tailoring enhances an hourglass shape. Box-pleat A-line skirts and dresses show expertise in cut with frontal projected kick volumes—a deep understanding of the body’s results in body-sensitive cuts and cutaways.
“This collection starts from understanding and appreciating the body we have always had in
our hearts at Versace. We applied the lessons learned in the Atelier to ready-to-wear: the construction, the tailoring, and the beauty of the fabric. This is a celebration of our craftsmanship and understanding of true luxury to create a wardrobe for the innovators and changers of the world and the people who champion them.
Los Angeles is a natural home because we share the DNA of energy, power, creativity, and imagination. Together at this show we share those values around the globe.” Donatella Versace
