Donatella Versace could not have chosen a more appropriate locale for her Atelier Versace show.
She presented her spring couture collection at Le Centorial, a turn of the century restored building in the Bourse area of Paris which was, at the time of its construction in 1876, a revolutionary architectural project built by Gustave Eiffel’s firm.
Kristen McMenamy opened the show in a structured pantsuit done in gold pinstripes with 24-carat epaulets. The line of the gold pinstripes delineated the precise cutting techniques employed to craft this suit.
A series of baby-doll gowns towards the end of the show demonstrated Versace’s remarkable control in keeping the shapes simple and the embellishments subtle. Case in point: The number Stella Tennant wore to close the show. It was yellow sheer chiffon covering a gold corset with a skirt of pleated tulle embroidered with crystals peaking out.
