Brass tacks

VER­SACE

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style File -

The hair was high, the boots were higher: it was pure Donatella. Some of the best­look­ing mod­els on the cat­walk, in­clud­ing Ge­or­gia May Jag­ger, formed a sassy Ver­sace army to showcase sexy mil­i­tary looks that were pure frock­ish fun. Large brass but­tons were worn dou­ble-breasted on dresses (cut on the bias for the first time), blaz­ers and swing coats, and there was epaulette fringe on shoul­ders. Colour was in­spired by pre­cious stones—a ruby silk slip and shaggy coat, and a sap­phire evening gown slashed to the thigh. And speak­ing of jew­els, ac­ces­sories were gold, gold and even golder—em­bel­lish­ments on boots, an In­dian-in­spired be­jew­elled sash, chunky medal­lion wrist cuffs, belts, hand­bags and over­sized chains swing­ing from chests. Look out for the cheongsamin­spired lit­tle red dress and match­ing bag as Donatella wages a fash­ion war around the world.
