Let’s Hear It For The Boys! Versace Strips Down to Simplicity for Their Fall 15′ Menswear Collection

As much I enjoy woman’s fashion, I have to admit; there’s a certain excitement I get for menswear as well. The pristine tailoring, the undeniable polish, and the overall simplicity of menswear collections tends to bring on a specific giddiness in me. For Versace’s Fall 15′ Menswear collection, that titillation escalated to full-on arousal. There seemed to be a profound effortlessness incorporated into Versace’s Fall 15′ collection. There were no overpowering prints, no dramatic decoration, and almost no color.

The collection could be described as muted but if one looks closely, there is nothing plain about the collection. Donatella Versace describes the overall collection as “Versace striped”. She went on to explain that collection is a representation of Versace’s soul, focusing on the silhouette and cut. When I look at the collection, I see a great softness that somehow appears to be missing in many of the menswear collection today. I feel that many brands focus on the edge and masculinity when it comes to creating a menswear collection, which is understandable.

But I wonder, does a menswear collection have to be overly powerful in order to be considered successful. Judging from Versace’s Fall 15 Menswear collection, that doesn’t appear to be the case. As it turns out, a menswear collection can be totally stripped of it’s robust aesthetic and still be considered menswear. Who knew?

I am a journalistic enthusiast, born and bred in Washington, D.C. When I'm not busy meticulously constructing posts, I can be found burying my head in an epic novel, cooking a delicious mess in the kitchen, scouring local thrift stores, and spending way too much time binging on Netflix (Arrested Development anyone?). I cannot live without a good playlist (Billy Holiday is preferred), working wifi (sometimes not always working), and Dunkin Donuts coffee (caramel swirl is my go-to flavor). If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to direct them to the email below. Happy Reading!
