versace fall winter 2010

versace was the last show i caught in milan, before jetting back cattle-class style back to london. i've been looking forward to this show all week. i really like what they did last season with the lighter colors and traveller theme. fall winter 2010 took a complete turn, they went cyber and futuristic and tron-ish and biker-ish. the opening was rather amazing, they had the above backdrop, and a laser show before the models strutted their stuff.

before the show started, a bevy of italian stars sat in front of us, and then it was manic flashes all round. can't really tell who they were, but strangely exciting and bizarre at the same time.

the show was a wild departure from last season. the casting was very much younger, more boys than men. where's noah mills, andres segura, david gandy or even sean o'pry??!

very tight shapes, almost all leather trousers dominate the looks. also, the models were marching to the extreme beats, so fast that they could be running down the runway. it takes so much effort to put on a show, i just wish the models would slow down a bit and let others look at the detailing. some of the pieces definitely deserve a second look.

  1. this is such a great blog for menswear and yes, most of your wishlist would be also great for me:)

  2. I continuously love reading your blog even though it's menswear you are the first person I actually pay attention to without drifting off into thoughts about women's clothes. ;-) I am preparing myself for LFW. Hopefully it goes well. Would love to report on a couple of shows.

  3. Versace is awesome! What are your Milan Favorites ???

  4. i have to agree with you Joe, this collection doesn't look Versace at all. Versus maybe, but not mainline Versace.

  5. thanks guys, that's such lovely comments :)

    pana: i really like prada and burberry prorsum, very strong.

    dd: very good analogy. i agree it's more versus than versace, but then again donatella did design versus when gianni was still around...

  6. That's one show i REALLY need to see. Please tell us when it's up on the internet.
