Versace Men’s Fall Collection 2017
Gone were the beefcake models, the shiny Medusa logos — not to mention the humor and most of the flashiness that have become synonymous with Versace men’s wear. In their place came subtler elements: blanket coats, trenches and shearlings, and lean, sensible suits.
Donatella Versace’s mission this season was to dress a variety of men — not just showmen. “We’re living in hard times, with problems all over the world,” she said before the show. “I liked the idea of men and a brotherhood, and I believe men are stronger together.”
Versace replaced her tall, buff boys with an international cast of models who were smaller and, well, more “normal” looking.
