Versace Men’s F/W 2019
Channeling the spirit of a Friday night out in New York City’s Supper Club when drag queen RuPaul was the host of festivities into a men’s show can only be done by one blonde in fashion. Yes, Donatella Versace. She probably went there to dance with RuPaul just like she went to Sound Factory and Twilo for legendary DJ Junior Vasquez who often made the show music for the house. So her soundtrack of 90’s house classics and her line-up of male models with long hair, parted in the middle, which looked like they walked out of a Bruce Weber Versus campaign shoot in Miami gelled well. To her credit only the attitude, grooming and soundtrack were 90’s, the fashion was solidly modern hybrid street tailoring with lots of classic Versace silks in the house’s signature wild print some reading “Kiss my Versace”. Let’s not forget, Versace is also the woman who pulled off the business deal of the year 2018 by selling her company for $2.1 Billion to Michael Kors. This was her first show since the mega deal and naturally Versace is now here to propel her house forward.
