You may have seen that Versace referenced its own decades-long heritage with the brand’s latest Tributes campaign. For this Spring 2018 collection, Donatella Versace paid tribute to her late brother Gianni – and the long list of iconic supermodels who have become a family while working for the brand. But now, the designer has unveiled the Versace Pre-Fall 2018 lookbook, which keeps this personal and intimate connection going.
The Pre-Fall 2018 line combines archival prints and patterns created by Gianni Versace in the 1980s and 1990s with modern street style elements. You will find Neoclassical and Baroque-influenced details, luxurious fabrics, and youthful logo prints all blended together to tell the label’s history. Keeping the themes of home and family in the forefront, the collection is also inspired by the Versace home in Italy.
This collection mixes the vibrancy of neons with the softness of pastels. The unique color range makes the ultra-wearable puffer coats, expertly-tailored suits, and patterned dresses even more striking. Of course, the Pre-Fall offerings also feature a hefty selection of black garments with opulent gold detailing, which has long been a staple for the brand.
Not only is this upcoming launch heavily self-referential, but the diversity in product styles makes it really appealing to a new, younger generation of shoppers. It’s definitely a line to look out for!
