Yes, Please | Versace Men’s Spring-Summer 2020 Fashion Show

“For this collection, I wanted to explore the elements that empower a man. It’s definitely the confidence, the freedom and desire to express himself without hesitation.” – Donatella Versace

The patent leather pants. The black trench. The chained black tote bag. The moto jacket with the fringes. The slacks with the flared bottoms (I’m not sure if I can pull that silhouette off. But I can’t knock it until I try it!). The sparkling blazers! The boots!

Damn, why don’t I have any friends at Versace yet?? This collection is insanely good.

Lady Gaga’s Versace Super Bowl Style Scored Big, Says Fashion Pundit Cameron Silver and Beyonce’s Stylist Ty Hunter

I spoke with Beyonce’s stylist Ty Hunter and pundit Cameron Silver about the fits Mother Monster got off. Cameron referred to the jumper as “ath-leisure on steroids” (that was a compliment, by the way). Ty, who helped style Beyonce for her 2013 SB halftime concert talked about his experience there, while also complimenting Versace for capturing “the Gaga style we grew to love.” Her costumes gave just enough adventure without scaring off simple middle America viewers who might be frightened by a jacket made of Kermit heads.
