Paris Haute Couture SS15: Atelier Versace

Cuts and curves

Showcasing her knack for cross-generational designs – with mother and daughter Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson sitting front row – Donatella Versace presented an alluring, bold and eternally chic Haute Couture collection for Spring/Summer 2015...

The point that Donatella Versace wanted to get across this season, as she put it, was "to go back to the shape of a woman's body, which is curvy." With not a single straight line found in Atelier Versace's latest lineup, it was clear Donatella meant what she said.

The Spring/Summer 15 Haute Couture show opened with a trio of black tailored yet asymmetrical looks, which was followed by white, bright red and royal blue dresses which hugged the body as if it was painted on.

Shining a spotlight on the uniqueness of each cut, there wasn't a single bead until look 14, as Donatella explored the curves of a woman's body using swirling shapes to make up the figure-hugging gowns, as well as adding classic Greek motifs (seen in Versace designs before) into the designs.

In addition to the linear cut-out gowns the Italian designer also infused some flamboyancy in the form of bouncy dirndl-style skirts belted at the waist and twisted collars and lapel lines.
