Latex at Versace – spring-summer 2022 collection
The fashion world once again had the pleasure of hosting great designers presenting latex in their collection. This time the new spring-summer 2022 collection was presented by the Versace fashion house.
We all remember the great latex fall/winter 2020/2021 collection from France’s YSL, presented a year and a half ago in Paris. This time with a very interesting collection comes the Italian fashion house Versace. During this year’s Milan Fashion Week in September 2021 in Milan, Donatella Versace presented her new spring-summer 2022 collection.
The fashion show was opened by singer and artist Dua Lipa, who is also the designer’s muse. On the catwalk we could also see Naomi Campbell, Gigi Hadid, Irina Shayk, Precious Lee and Lourdes Leon. The whole show consisted of 80 different outfits, which can be conventionally divided into two parts. The first one is a bit more elegant – jackets, suits, blazers and others. The second part is a typically summer collection, which is dominated by summer and bright colors and cuts. In both these parts and among the stars on the catwalk latex appears. It is either the main part of the whole outfit or is incorporated into it as a component. Versace presents latex dresses, skirts and tops. There are also latex head scarves! The pieces come in a wide range of colors – from classic black to bright and neon hues. At the end of the show, Donatella Versace herself came out from backstage, accompanied once again by Dua Lipa. For this occasion Donatella wore… a latex dress in classic black. This shows that latex is a very important element of the whole collection.
On the occasion of the article from the YSL show, the question arose whether we will see latex in men’s fashion. Versace gives us a positive answer, because the collection features a men’s latex t-shirt! It seems like it’s only a matter of time until there will be much bigger latex shows in men’s fashion.
Below we present the entire show and some of the styles in which latex appeared. What do you think about Donatella’s work and the future of latex on the catwalks? Share your opinions in the comments!
