Helming rebellion and urbanity, Versus Versace AW16 makes a case for marrying trends

Count on Versus Versace to nail hybridised trends — delivering the perfect blend of rock ’n’ roll chic and urban edge, its autumn/winter 2016 collection is the definition of fearless. As the diffusion line of Italian luxury powerhouse Versace, the panache of the collection comes as no surprise. 

“I love people with a strong sense of mind. It’s this toughness that we capture in the new Versus Versace collection – the individual attitude of the new generation,” expressed leading lady Donatella Versace. Known for its dauntless aesthetic, Versus Versace definitely lived up to its DNA with its palpable rock energy. The colour scheme is surprisingly understated for such show-stopping numbers, with muted shades of burgundy, olive, and occasional pops of orange. 

If you’re looking to toughen up your fall wardrobe, look no further than the heavy-duty statement pieces in this collection. Woven bombers, checkerboard studs and utility jackets are sure to add just the right amount of edge. And of course, no Versus Versace line is complete without its iconic Greek emblem — which you can find rendered in hardware in its sleek lineup of accessories and footwear. 

Taking on nodes of military influence, the ensembles seem ready for any sartorial combat. In the very same lineup, delicate elegance is conveyed through slinky laser-cut camisoles and sheer maxi dresses. The motive of the collection is clear — to spur on that inner badass.

Versus Versace AW16 is now available instores at Takashimaya Department Store, Level 2.
