The unveiling of the Atelier Versace Haute Couture Spring\Summer ’14 took place yesterday in Paris under the patronage of Lady Gaga and Anna Wintour, to name a few.
Different ways with draping: sculpted and controlled to highlight the lines of sleek tailoring, or liberated and sensual for fluid silk jersey dresses.
Metallic bugle beads are used for geometric embroideries, while silk jersey is often entirely hand-embroidered with Swarovski crystals.
Furs are redolent, from a super-light white mink and fox coat worn off the shoulder with an attached hood of Swarovski crystal, or an oversized fox fur stole.
Full skirts create elegant volume, made radical in a semi-transparent fabric that’s like liquid glass. Hoods attached to jackets and dresses add allure and drama.
Here’s our selection straight from the runway.
