Versace and Kane kept the silhouette figure-hugging with their tight, sinewy cuts. Leather tops were slashed and then laced back up with cord, and trousers were worn low across the hip. The palette ran from moody mauves to hushed royal blues and then over to shocking shades of pink and muted yellow. A blown-up print decorated several of the later looks, until the runway took a turn for the psychedelic in the form of tie-dyed dresses. Thigh-high boots clasped the lean legs of the models – boots made, perhaps, for stomping on a few idealistic romantic dreams. This tough, sexy collection was right on the money for the youth crowd that Versus attracts. Stay with this theme, and you have yourself a real moneymaker.
