Spring 2016 Couture: Atelier Versace

Atelier Versace spring 2016 couture
Paris has finally opened its doors to couture!
Last night the iconic Donatella Versace kicked off couture week with a star studded runway show: Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Lara Stone, Mariacarla Boscono, Natasha Poly, Irina Shayk, Joan Smalls and Behati Prinsloo brought their top model’s allure to Atelier Versace spring 2016 couture collection.
As you all know, Versace is never about dreamy princesses, but fierce and sexy women who spark confidence 24/7: and I guess that confidence is what you need to rock this collection.
All the classic old school Versace’s leitmotiv were there: from the cut out to the sheer panels, not forgetting the fitted mini-dresses or the body-con gowns.
However what surprised the audience was the injection of athleticism that most of the pieces evoked: indeed Yasmine Wijnaldum opened the show wearing an optic white bomber and skinny pants, introducing us to a series of mostly white sporty yet modern looks with neon accents in yellow and orange. Definitely a reminder of the successful urban glam direction showcased with the previous ready to wear collection.
Donatella experimented with geometries both in shapes and graphic, and she spiced up many tuxedos, suits and dresses by adding provocative cut outs (of course) and Swarovski ropes, the real signature of this collection.
TEB’s review:
Overall we loved many things…but not enough to call this collection a masterpiece. 
To be honest we were more fascinated by Versace’s new direction in ready to wear fashion than couture, and not because Donatella cannot give us couture. Aside those beautiful sportswear-inspired pieces and those sheer gowns bejewelled by crystals, the rest of the collection looked a little bit forced. 
The rope detailing looked so prominent on few outfits, that it made us question ourselves about the wearability: some dresses would definitely not work in real life, and since we are talking about couture, they would not work on the red carpet.
Too harsh? Well, then take a look at Rita Ora, who was sitting front row wearing one of the couture creations showcased on the runway…
