Donatella Versace: Shoulder Pads Are a No-Go

>> INSIDER WIRE Donatella Versace converses with longtime friend Lenny Kravitz for the June/July 2009 issue of Interview, admitting that she doesn't know how to cook "anything" and asking Lenny to tell her "honestly" what he thinks about her son Daniel Beck Versace's rock band demo.  She also says that she won't be dredging up the '80s:

I knew that trend was coming. I knew exactly when every designer was going to start doing it. And I couldn’t, because I was with Gianni doing the ’80s, in the ’80s. I have so many pieces in the archives that I could put right out on the runway and they’d be perfect. [laughs] In general, I think, yes, we can look back, but not that much. It’s too literal. Like shoulder pads. We belonged to that time. But for me, it doesn’t make sense today. You can play with it for one season, but it’s not going to be revolutionary. I think we should move forward, not back. To define the era we live in is very difficult . . . Fashion is struggling to define itself today. For me, I’m concentrating more on fabrics, on the technological aspect of fabrics.
