I dunno why but Id kinda sorta like to see a Versace come back...





... It'd take so much nerve to wear Versace these days but I dunno that almost makes it transgressive which is attractive to me.
These are some looks from the recent collection. I like the use of color and sheen. Im willing to bet they make a come back by 2012. You know theyd deliver on ridiculous blade style sunglasses and Im dying for a good pair....

In the triassic epoch, before I became an elderly sausage, I used to love to dress in Versace and Gaultier because nothing else was as provocative on the street.

If you look at the Madonna video "open your heart" there I am wearing my own Versace, Gaultier, Byblos, and Claude Montana ensemble.

The clothes also happened to be great, immensely creative, and well crafted.

GV was a brilliant guy and he really got why he was making his choices. For example, short of Saville Row, you couldn't find a simple black cashmere blazer that was more elegant than Versace. Pair that with a polished silk or ombre shirt and you had something that pushed all kinds of cultural buttons.

A Versace comeback would be awesome, and I agree that saturated colors, delineated silhouette, and meaningful pattern are due for a return. I'm not sure there is anyone in Versace-land who can give it what it needs for a full fledged comeback.
