Versace A/W 2017
Mood board: The soundtrack may have been dark and moody, and the models’ hair wet and scrappy, but Versace’s show shaped up to be the most wonderfully wearable and cooly grounded we’ve seen in seasons. From oil slick patent anoraks and hooded sweatshirts, to the most pristine camel coats and grey flannel suits, Versace delivered a whole closet of throw-them-on-now real clothes.
Best in show: Aside from great looking sharp suiting, sweeping blanket coats looked ruggedly handsome in boiled printed wools with huge slits up the sides. Also on point were the perfectly cut bomber jackets in wool felt, that added a preppy edge to street-kid plaid shirts and thigh-clinging pants.
Finishing touches: All of a man’s classic extras came ever so slightly twisted this season. Wing tips sprouted bubble toes, oxfords sported rugged hiking soles, and an oversized satchel came embellished with a bounty of silver studs and a snaking medusa medallion.
