For Versace AW17, Donatella Versace looked to gangs of men for inspiration – as seen in the symbolic clothing of historic clans and in the modern day boardroom around the world. “This is a collection about the different tribes of Versace men, and the powerful positivity that can happen when men from different places, different cultures join together’, the designer and Vice President of the Versace Group explained post the Versace AW17 show.

Join the Versace AW17 Tribes

Versace AW17 calls for new recruits to its brotherhood. Designing the uniform for this best dressed gang, Donatella Versace combined precise tailoring with Highland checks and sports kit essentials. At the brand’s Milan Fashion Week show, which took place at MiCo Milan, Europe’s largest convention centre, the classic Versace suit was updated with a slim fit, inspired by modern day working wardrobes. The century old dress of Scottish clansmen found their way into the collection via plaid shirts and cropped bomber jackets. Yet another print used in the collection reached even further info fashion history, echoing the hand-painted marks of ancient tribes. Photorealistic prints mixed the likeness of elegant classical sculptures with images of hardware in a nod to traditionally all male vocations. A Milan highlight was the collection’s wide choice of outerwear. A single-breasted camel coat and puffer jackets are worn belted tight;  sweeping knitted coats envelop the Versace gang’s newest members. Instead of Brownie badges, Versace nylon zip up jackets are beautifully emblazoned with delicate embroideries spelling messages of hope. Tailoring and sportswear alike are worn with trainers inspired by hardwearing hiking boots.
