I remember Versus from the '90s being Versace's youthful, rebellious younger line. The ads were cool; remember the twin series? While other companies are downsizing, Versace is reviving. Versus is making a comeback. At Milan Fashion Week this week, the Versace group is releasing a relaunch package. First up: An accessories line designed by Scottish boy genius Christopher Kane.
Handbags, shoes and steel jewelry, have a hard-edged, glam vibe. Black, white, and silver make up a renegade collection not for the faint of heart. Donatella spoke of her choice of Kane confidentially, "Christopher is a highly creative young designer and his work impressed me from the very beginning. His rock n roll style is very powerful, glamorous and sensual - perfectly in tune with the mood of Versus - which was always intended for young people who want clothes that project a personal style that is constantly evolving."
