Last season’s Versace collection, for which Donatella Versace resuscitated the bold, brash prints made famous by her late brother Gianni in the 1990s, was an outright success, striking a chord with young customers who hadn’t experienced them the first time around. Not surprisingly, Versace continued to allude to the house’s playful heritage for autumn, this time with a new batch of strikingly vibrant patterns. Tartans mixed with florals mixed with Medusa heads covered the models from head scarf to toe. Indeed, at times, the styling was uncharacteristically modest – a clever foil for the eye-catching prints.
