The show started off with shirtless men wearing black masks and golden chains walking out, they took positions in the stands behind the audience holding on to thick ropes. Each of their pull brought a dramatic flair to the iconic printed tent acting as the roof. Dua Lipa started the show with her own song Physical playing in the background .Platform black strap heels, green eye shadow, a black suit with slashes fastened together by the brands iconic coloured safety pins.

“The foulard is a fundamental component of Versace’s heritage and character. It acts as a canvas for our iconic prints and is worn in multiple ways from knotted tops to headscarves to bag accessories, it’s a way of adding Versace attitude to any look. The foulard has been with us since the very beginning of the brand, but this season turns everything on its head, it is no longer fluid or dreamy, the scarf is provocative, sexy, wound tight.” Donatella Versace

Similar silhouettes with Versace’s iconic silk foulard peeking from underneath black sleeveless suits. Accessorised with Colourful bags ,both in solids and Versace print. The scarf top using the foulard on a male model with a clean black blazer on top.

It’s as though the components have been pulled apart and then quickly reassembled.

The brand’s signature Safety Pins are used to carelessly fasten slashes in the clothes. The Safety Pins have been updated in a variety of bright hues to serve as both a functional fastener and a dramatic adornment.

Trench coats with silk foulard print with otherwise a simple wrap coat.Size inclusive models were seen as well as good representation of people of colour. Sleek latex dresses, tops, and skirts in a striking colour provide a textural variation.

This season there’s a celebration of brand code La Greca, as well as fresh designs. Royal Rebellion presents crowns and crests in bold colorways, and Banquet Aftermath features dishes and cutlery from the Versace Home collection — the cutlery is also translated to knife and fork jewelry. Acid Bouquet is Versace’s answer to spring florals and is characteristically unromantic in clashing acid tones.
