Enlisting the talents of Belgian model Simon Van Meervenne, Italian fashion house Versace showcase their latest ‘Versace Collection’ autumn/winter 2012 offerings, through an elegantly styled lookbook.
The range focuses heavily upon well-cut, tailored garments, with suiting and outerwear taking centre stage.
The range follows a classically refined aesthetic, with many pieces coming in more subdued and conventional colour ways of grey, black and navy – this palette reflecting the seasonal change. However, throughout the collection there are noticeable splashes of colour, with knitwear and outerwear benefiting from an injection of deep burgundy and camel.
With the colours being kept to more traditional rich shades, it does not detract from the refined and elegant aesthetic the brand were seeking to achieve. These hues also add a slight sense of playfulness to the range and shows that, although the collection isn’t trend-led, Versace are still up to date with all the key trends. (The brand has incorporated a number of colourful patterned shirts within the range as well.)
Overall, it is an extremely desirable and wearable range, and will make a welcome addition to any modern gentleman’s wardrobe.
