ATELIER VERSACE FALL WINTER 2017-18

In July 2017, I visited for the first time Versace’s private showroom in Paris on rue Montaigne. The showroom is located in the same building as the Parisian Versace boutique. The presentation of the new collection took place during the haute couture week in Paris, given the fact that Atelier Versace is a couture label. In previous years. Donatalle Versace hat opened the haute couture week in Paris with her Sunday night act and a dinner party. This year, she decided to go back to basics and to present the Atelier Versace Fall Winter 2017-18 collection in the private showroom of the company.

The new Atelier collection reflects precision and lightness, tailored lines and graphic volumes. It balances the attitude of Atelier Versace cocktail with the perfection of evening attire. “Atelier Versace is a fantasy come to life. It is about power and fragility, and the inner strength when the two are combined,” says Donatella Versace.

The Mosaic bracelet from the Atelier Versace Jewellery collection features diamond accents, reinterpreting a mosaic pattern in Palazzo Versace in Milan. The Daivi ring features a unique Amethyst stone surrounded by rose gold snakes resembling the mythological Medusa.
