Atelier Versace Haute Couture Spring Summer 2016





Athletic couture – for women who move to the beat of their own drum.

Femininity, dynamism: the strength to overcome obstacles, the beauty of the female body at its peak.

White- on-white ergonomic lines are traced over rounded jackets and parkas, with intersected by yellow or orange straps like harnesses.

A white jumpsuit has an open and draped back, a harness of hand-embroidered micro paillettes holding the body.

Interlocking panels like functional sportswear create an exquisitely sharp Smoking, as well as a strict paillettes dress that is as if overwrapped.

Panels of silicon gel gives the mood of performance, with dresses caged by cutouts, or draped dresses held and controlled by silicone bands.

Velvet backed by leather is cut by water jet for strict cages of great softness for draped dresses, with hand-embroidered crystals that trace the body.

Hand-crocheted pieces are linked together by flocked chains and ropes of Swarovski crystal, as if the laces of a trainer.

Bands of flat sequins suddenly burst apart on a sleeveless dress as if shockwaves running across the body.

Transparent ergonomically embroidered bodies give energy with different tones of black to a nearly sheer dress.

Gowns and tuxedos are as if exploded, then held together with extravagant knots of Swarovski ropes.

The soundtrack has been specially written by underground musician Violet, her performance responding and reacting to the energy and power of the collection.

“I believe women can be powerful and achieve their dreams while also having great elegance and beauty. This is a collection for all women who walk their own path.” Donatella Versace, Atelier Versace.
