On the other hand, next season Versace x HM partnership entices the guys with a less showy, and perhaps a more built-together wardrobe, with monochromatic colors like blue, white and black dominating the entire collection. These are the items that I like from the preview images...
Denim shirt with Versace's ubiquitous meander pattern (also known as Greek key pattern) - suitably apt for a casual/semi-formal mix on a lazy Sunday afternoon, reading a book on history of Greek art, perhaps.
The white equivalent of similar design is a more formal option - a wedding reception in a hotel, maybe? (I always visualise all things formal has to be a themed hotel-related occasion, blame it on my middle-class mentality...)
The shorts section similarly offers tailored/casual options. I don't really wear shorts but if I was born with a tall lithe figure in the next karma I'd wear these any time of the day...
In addition, the collection also attempts to lure gentlemen with loungewear, which comes in the form of this silky-looking robe, again with the Meander pattern (in a more ostentatious way, of course).
The accessory department otherwise reverbrates with the sheer luxury excess very familiar to Versace. I don't really fancy them, but I would snap up these had I been a label-hungry university student with cash to burn (gone were the days of excess indulgences on Italian labels).
Tell me, which item(s) do you like?
