Designer Donatella Versace opened Paris Fashion Week with her “Athletic Couture” Collection” on Sunday night.
The haute couture collection features design that are edgy, modern, and sexually charged. We saw stylish tracksuit bottoms, shoulder baring tops with racer backs which brings to mind those sportswear. Cobalt blue and acid tangerine, some highlighter orange and neon yellow are the colors that dominated this collection.
Model Gigi Hadid led the models down the runway wearing an all-black pants and suit combo with cutout details that is both striking and stylish.
The head of the Versace family has this to say, “This collection is one of the most complicated, sophisticated, and technically accomplished that we have ever created.”
There is truth in that statement, judging by the design and workmanship of each outfit. What a remarkable way to open a week of haute couture fashion.
