Couture Spring '13: Atelier Versace

Although it is cold outside and I'm still longing for the beach, January-February has got to be one of my favorites time of the year because it is just a NON-STOP FASHION FEED! You've got Pitti Uomo, then we immediately go into Spring Couture, and then we slide right on into Fall '13 at New York, London, Milan, and Paris. Overloaddddddddd!!!!!!!!!

....but let's not get too ahead of ourselves here. Couture week in Paris has just kicked off, with Atelier Versace taking the first steps. This is Donatella's 3rd couture show so far and there was all of the ingredients that make a show trés trés Versace: Sexy & tight dresses, bold lines, and lustrous accents in the form of metallic material and beading. On top of that she had many heavy hitters of the runway stomp it off: Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls, and Stella Tennant to name a few.

However she surprised us with some wool pantsuits and sheaths, fitted for daywear, and also some unexpected[well, unconventional for Versace that is] tailoring. There was also a play-round with pops of fur, which isn't something you commonly see with the house of Versace.

I mean, if Kristen McMenamy doesn't set the pace for you, I don't know what will:

PS- She is 47. Just like Cindy in this post here, I want to know the secret!
Overall I enjoyed this collection because of it's uniqueness to the Versace name. Donatella took the advantage of a couture presentation [versus your ready-to-wear, where people almost expect a certain look] to play around with the styling which I definitely applaud her for!

Check out some of my favorite looks from this presentation, after the jump!










COUTURE WEEK, COMMENCE!

      Seriously. I feel that any one who puts on a Versace dress has instant confidence. Now if only I could get my hand on one.
