MILAN — Friday night in Milan, count yourself lucky if you made your past the formidable cordons placed before via Gesù, 12, the house that the late Gianni Versace built. Inside, the runway space was completely red with a clear acrylic glass runway and at the base two sets of stairs that were erected behind an elevation with Versace meander fenestration. The space was unmistakably Versace as was the collection for Fall 2015 that Donatella Versace sent out on the runway. It was sexy, it was sensual, produced in a bold palette of primary colors and black, and with the most elegant of scalpel-perfect cut-outs. The spirit of the collection was firmly in the early 1990s with a timeless sensibility the sort of that makes Prince’s “When Doves Cry” sound new every time just as it did during the runway finale when it was played at considerable volume. On the evening Grace Hartzel, Laura Julie, and Yana walked the runway and very likely had doves crying with joy. Friday night in Milan, may it never end.
