Versace SS 2018


How amusing to see some of the original 'supers' reunited in middle age, still showing the young 'uns how it's done, working the catwalk at Versace's Spring Summer 2018 show last week for Milan Fashion Week. They evoked the glamour and hedonism of the 90s when a true supermodel "wouldn't get out of bed for less than $10,000 dollars a day!". The show was a tribute to Gianni, and raided the archives to revisit some of the original prints that adorned his designs from that era. I well remember the butterfly prints from the Versace 1995 collection, and below are the original Gianni butterfly print designs updated with new clothing patterns by Donatella Versace.



Original vibrant 1990s Versace butterfly prints are featured below, as well as the designer himself with a clutch of his beloved supermodels.
