Milan: Graphics were essential throughout Donatella’s latest lineup for Versace. Constructivist prints, patterns, and iconic Greek keys made a striking impact covering boxy mini dresses and sets. Diagonal angles in the form of inset fabric blocking and wrapping broke up ’60s-influenced silhouettes. A sweet palette of frosted pink and icy blue contrasted against harder black and white. Mesh and openwork created depth when worn over soft colour. Grommets and crystal embellishment added surface interest. –Deirdre Pérez
