Have a Heart
Versace has never seemed romantic--sexy? hell yeah!--but not romantic. However, this season Donatella's literal interpretation of the heart shaped neckline has softened the usually sleek signature look just a smidge. Too soft? Of course not, those hearts still have bite. They are shaped from zippers and lined with little metal teeth, ready to snip at any hand that may get too close. A perfect pairing of sweet and spicy.
Even better than the thumpers, were the amazing Julie Verhoeven prints worked into flowing gowns. Verhoeven's female faces blended with seashells and stars on psychadelic silks.
Her work always makes me a bit woosy with want. Love me some Verhoeven.
