Versace RTW Fall 2015

Versace 4Versace is a brand I have always admired in terms of their creative direction (and their perfumes!) but in terms of their collections they never really scream out to me personally until I seen this collection for Fall 2015. The show started out very simple and chic with a collection of black pinstripe office style wear with suits, jackets and pencil skirts. Each look had a slight pop of colour injected which seemed to be an indication of what was to come.

Thereafter was an explosion of colour onto the runway. Bold hues took over through a collection of capes and coats with 60s style wide belts. The 60s theme continued with a range of geometric prints and the silhouettes took an interesting turn with cutouts and high slits up the leg. The collection certainty carried the Versace name not only through the style but it was clearly emblazoned on a number of pieces through the collection.

The end of the show was really the wow moment for me. Mainly black based mini dresses and sheer tops featuring rainbow hued embellishments stole it for me. Donatella certainty showed her inspiration of the digital age with hash-tag and ‘@’ symbolism embellished on the designs. Karlie Kloss sported the winner for me with a sheer top halved dress featuring a range of Technicolor embellishments which certainly was a fresh take on the classic LBD. The collection was bold, bright, current and had the Versace name all over it (literally). Check out the rest of the collection here.

Topshop vs Burberry Prorsum


The Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013 collection has been very popular lately and one piece in particular that has stole the hearts of the public is the heart print shirt that was wore by Karlie Kloss on the runway earlier this year. It has already been spotted on many celebrities such as Victoria Beckham and Harry Styles so no wonder Topshop have created their own cheaper version. The Burberry version retails for a pricey cost of £495/$795 while Topshop have released their own mark on the Burberry shirt for a cheaper £38.00/$76.00. I personally love this shirt and the heart print is one that is very popular this season so I would snap it up fast! What do you think of this shirt? Follow the blog on twitter @5tyled
