Versace jazzes up Milan fashion week with acid colours and plastic

Donatella Versace's Spring/Summer collection swirls sixties prints into contemporary styles.


MILAN, ITALY (SEPTEMBER 25, 2009) REUTERS - Versace's plastic skirts over sixties style shifts brought a bright mood to Milan's Spring/Summer 2010 womenswear collections on Friday (September 25).
Donatella Versace, who designs for the house, used candy pink and acid drop green for slinky print mini dresses, while black spots were lined up on pink peplum jackets. The spots splashed out over white wellies, too.

The designer mixed stretchy knit tight-fitting tops with skirts covered in metallic triangle patches for a look half-warrior half-waif. Palest cream leather was worked into pleats and then stamped with rivet-like emblems.

A pale apple green shift sported a metallic shoulder strap like an ammunition belt. Versace showed her soft side in chiffon versions of the prints in floaty folds for evening.

Milan Fashion Week runs until Wednesday (September 30).
