Atelier Versace F/W 2012-2013

Every morning when I wake up, I have the pleasure of seeing my email full of messages from Vogue (I highly recommend adding them to your Facebook and/or Twitter as well)…and I often spend the first hour of my day looking at all the images of new collections, collaborations and designs.This morning, I was so happy to see the Atelier Versace collection for this upcoming fall/winter season. Donatella Versace staged this utterly beautiful and feminine show at the last location her late brother, Gianni Versace, held his…the iconic Ritz Hotel. It was also the place where she last saw her brother…so you can imagine the emotions that were felt as the show started and finished. For me, this collection felt like love. Perhaps she had her brother’s presence extra close to her heart as she prepared for this show…I don’t know, but the collection felt emotional, almost fragile and true to Versace form…absolutely gorgeous. The color palette had an array of soft pinks, metallic golds and elegant purples. Donatella’s need for sexiness was displayed in a romantic way. The hair and makeup for this show was reminiscent of a Veronica Lake era…making the mix between the modern woman and vintage glamour a delectable combination. At prices starting at $19,000,  this is a collection that is attained by only the elite few that can afford it…but I have to say, it sure is nice to look at and hey, a girl can dream, right?

What a fabulous collection…you have continued to make your brother’s legacy grow while maintaining your view as a designer and more importantly as a woman.

XOXO,
Martha
