Huge congratulations to Donatella Versace and the rest of her team, as the Ritz in Paris played host to Atelier Versace’s fist ever Couture show since 1997 on Sunday night. Christian Dior wasn’t the only show we were waiting with baited breath to see!
We had a small feeling the autumn/winter 2012 show was going to be quite the spectacle, but that turned out to be a massive understatement. In a word… it was epic!
The Atelier Versace collection was “built upon the idea of deconstruction and reconstruction in all its various forms.
“Inspired by the imagery and decoration of tarot cards, powerful symbols such as the sun, moon and world are reproduced on weightless fabrics with a glass effect,” reads a press release from the fashion House.
“The elements of these tarot cards have been rendered and embroidered as though seen through the eyes of Pablo Picasso, giving them an abstract feel.”
Pretty cool concept, huh?! Predictably, the front row was laden with only the most famous of faces (naturally clad in their Versace ensembles), the likes of which included Jessica Alba, Christina Hendricks, Lea Michele, M.I.A, Fan Bingbing and Pierce Brosnan among others.
Welcome back Atelier Versace Couture!
