All roads lead to Rome, even in Milan on Saturday evening where Donatella Versace called for a Senate meeting of a rather fabulous nature. The matriarch’s in-house runway room was decked out like a Roman bathhouse (more so than usually, that is) with Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s Welcome to the Pleasuredome casually playing in the background as guests took their seats.
The Versace empire stretches far beyond ancient Rome, though: In her show notes, the designer cited the hot streets of Havana as another inspiration. Versace tapped into the tropical trend being seen on Milan’s runways so far this season with roomy suits in sun-kissed colors such as dusty pink and cornflower blue, while an abstract palm leaf pattern blossomed across silk shirts. Jeans were tailored to hot climes — and toned quads — and came riddled with embroidered cutouts. Tropical or toned, the collection was firmly aimed at the Versace man.
