“Rockmantic” is the word Donatella Versace coined for her strong resort collection, which was centered around tailoring and a colorful new print that combined guitars, flowers, heels, Baroque elements and Greek stripes. The designer also found inspiration in Milan’s Memphis style, the revolutionary Italian design movement founded in the Eighties. Thus a black leather zipped jacket and matching miniskirt were whipstitched with neon yellow hearts and lightning bolts, while an oversize silk shirt, worn as a dress, and a cotton panama jacket both featured pink-gold snaps in the shape of the house’s iconic Medusa head. When open, they added cool, asymmetric shapes to the looks.
