When a whole culture is awakened from a 4-century-long slumber, it is like a Phoenix reborn from its ashes. Greece is revived in the eye-catching spring/summer 2015 Atelier Versace collection and will monopolize every fashionable woman’s desires. What better occasion to present this tribute to my homeland than on her Independence Day...
Impressive but easy-to-wear short Jackie-O-lined and Amazon-like one-shoulder dresses host a limited yet powerful spectrum of intense colors, shiny materials and a kind of 70's use of Greek motifs. Maximized, tilted and broken meanders are used as a modern out-of-the-box version of the well-known classical motif.
On the long evening dresses, monochrome takes center stage and draws attention to the feminine curves of the body, rather than camouflage them. The captivating swirling sculpted motifs are nothing but in the spotlight and follow the female form in a very flattering way. The Aphrodite-like figures of the models allude to ancient Greek sculptures and sirens that have emerged from a dream.
Last but not least, the little black dress - as a classic in every woman’s wardrobe - has gained a Greek/rock quality in the Versus collection, while the longer black dresses expose knee-high sandals which are the final touch to the ultimate Greek-inspired look.
