Hey there, Medusa. As Versace mania looms ahead of the houses H&M collaboration, Donatella has delivered a maximalism manifesto in the form of reissued blouses.
The three silk shirts come straight out of the newly vintage 90s by way of Casa Casuarina. Theres a black, ivory and gold blouse with Greek-style scrollwork, a red-dominated design with trompe loeil gold chains and Chinese fans, and a pink confection strewn with flowers and harlequins.
Why now? Blame it on (or thank) Lady Gaga, who revived a vintage Versace corset in her Edge of Glory video; on the runway volte-face from minimalism to hyper prints, or on the racing hearts of those H&M shoppers. Whatever the source, the current mood makes Versaces vintage pieces more attractive than ever to many shoppers.
True vintage blouses from the Gianni era are growing increasingly hard to find, owing to what we hear are concerted efforts by the brands agents to buy in any examples still in the wild. No one can do Versace better than Versace, the brand said in a statement. In other words, more is definitely morenow, more than ever.More
