Versace being the powerhouse that it is, showcases it’s Pre-Fall 2016 collection prior to the January 2017 fashion weeks.  A stunning collection, laser cut clothing, with machinery precision.  What could be considered a clean looking modernist style is clearly accentuated via technological processes.  Daunting and probably overwhelming for a younger designer to grapple with, but with the mega finances and established branding this is the reality.  Satin and silk overlays, furs, immaculate cotton weaves and pleats.  Modernist /mid-century inspired pattern work.  Black as the base with deep purples, red, orange and grays.   A broad collection and produced (mass) as an high end range that would be readily available.  Most likely aimed at Russian and Chinese/Hong Kong markets.
