Donatella Versace‘s spring 2017 collection was all about celebrating impressive females, and for fall 2017 she all over again utilized her runway as a system to distribute a feminist message — however this one particular felt much more literal and, perhaps, political. Before the exhibit really commenced, the livestream featured movie interviews with most of the prime styles who walked the exhibit, which commenced with several of them stating their nationalities, nearly all of which had been diverse. When the runway exhibit did begin, a numerous forged of styles stormed the runway to a techno soundtrack with the word “equality” recurring about and about all over again. The same word could be observed printed on hats, scarves and sewn into several clothes, together with “braveness,” “enjoy,” “power,” “unity,” “power” and “loyalty.” The way in which the terms had been integrated into the futuristic, largely streetwear-motivated (but however party-all set) collection was reminiscent of Alexander Wang, but the optimistic sentiment of female empowerment and inclusivity feels universal (and really welcome).

The exhibit is rumored to be Donatella’s last for the dwelling, with Riccardo Tisci believed to be ready in the wings to just take about right after acquiring remaining Givenchy. And the information she aimed to communicate with this collection is really considerably in line with the vibes Tisci brought to Givenchy. Or else, the exhibit didn’t stray considerably from what we have occur to be expecting from Versace: flashy neon accents, physique-hugging power attire, vertiginous heels, assertion outerwear, loud prints and sequins, with sporty aspects peppered all through. And, of class, it featured a killer forged — together with Behati Prinsloo‘s initial put up-baby runway appearance, each Hadids, Kendall Jenner, Adwoa Aboah, Anna Ewers, Imaan Hammam, Stella Maxwell and all those people other women you know. Closing the exhibit, Amber Valletta included a small age variety to the presently-really-numerous combine.

In all, if this was Versace’s swan music, she’s leaving on a optimistic be aware, and we are unable to hold out to see what’s future for the legendary Italian dwelling.
