MILAN — Donatella Versace delivered a two-part fashion extravaganza on Tuesday, with her dual show for her Versace and Versus collections, held in a big television studio with 1,000 guests. Her message was that, regardless of the difficulties of the times, people want something to enjoy and desire. The clothes looked great, many with a luxed-up, rock ’n’ roll Western theme, including tuxedos styled to resemble Western shirts and bold coats with fringe. Here, her fringed pastel lynx coat, little top and ultralow-slung leather pants for Versace. For more on the season, see pages 4 to 7.
