Versace’s Killer Style Modeled On Modern Day Sicario

Donatella Versace’s Fall 2017 menswear collection in Milan was an acknowledgement of the uncertain times ahead. After a year that included not just Brexit, but also the election of Donald J. Trump  There was a mood of caution in the air. “We’re living in hard times, with problems all over the world,” she said before the show. “I liked the idea of men and a brotherhood, and I believe men are stronger together.”

The first half of the show was filled with sleek Versace suits, topcoats, skinny ties, and Vibram-soled boots that looked both tough and sensual. Woven jacquard topcoats came patterned with digital checks and were worn over turtlenecks and a single gold chain medallion. Waistlines were extravagantly emphasized; outerwear was fiercely cinched including a dark satin mackintosh, a wide-hooded shearling, a lipstick-red leather coat, and two down parkas, one in a buffalo check towards the end. Apparently, Versace had been thinking about clans and their tartans, which is why checks were a recurring theme through the show.

 


Versace’s selection of suiting teamed with topcoats, skinny ties, and brogue, Vibram-soled boots, should appeal to non-conformist types, and guys who worship actor Jason Statham’s elite killer character roles. Sliced-hem pants have zippers to accommodate boot, while sleek car coats and patent leather backpacks give off the vibe of a modern day sicario.
