Day three of Milan Fashion Week: the AW19 edition and tonight we’re with Donatella, as the legendary designer presents exactly what she has in store for us next season (spoiler: it’s q sexy). Here’s everything you missed.
Things were pretty stripped back this season, with a black carpeted runway lined by lights forming a figure of eight in the show space. At the centre of it, though, was an enormous gold safety pin embossed with the iconic Medusa figurehead synonymous with the label, which models walked under as they took their lap.
On the line-up for AW19 were satin slip-dresses, pencil skirts, and tight-fitting tops, all in a palette of acid green, orange, and yellow, some of which were overlaid with bondage-y cage-like bras and corsets. Elsewhere, models wore high-shine coats and skirts made from patent leather croco fabric with (faux) fur stoles in bright colours, chunky woolly beanies, and quilted, monogrammed clutches. Finishing things off were a series of printed tees featuring images by Richard Avedon, which were created with the support of the legendary photographer’s foundation, as well as a new print featuring Versace's many perfume bottles.
