When I think of Versace, currently and stretching back since Donatella took over the house, I think of three words: sexy, dependable, predictable. I always know that the Versace collection is going to be at least two of these things (though Donatella rarely misses the mark when it comes to sexy.) There is a Versace mold – slinky dresses, cut outs, detailed fabrics, deep v necks, high slits, very light or a very dark palette. On the few occasions Donatella has broken away from these lines and the collection has been a disaster – I believe the Spring 2013 RTW is an example of this. Being a fan of this Versace look, I’m rarely disappointed by the collections, but predictability is not exactly something a fashion house wants. Fashion, especially haute couture collections, are supposed to be the cutting edge of the new, the next thing we’re all going to be wearing or wanting to wear. When you already basically know what a house is going to put out during a show, it’s hard for them to keep the focus, and I would definitely say the Versace is starting to fall out of focus with the head pack of fashion houses now.
