Milan: High-end outerwear was the focus of Versace’s Pre-Fall message, a season full of slick leathers and shaggy fur. The label gave its signature sexy spin to classic coats, combining motorcross padding with a trench silhouette and shrinking a wool toggle coat into a sporty mini jacket. Beyond these well-executed outer layers, the collection served up schoolgirl minis in lace embellished tweed, cozy cardigans enhanced by a fluffy angora and aggressive over the knee leather boots with spiked metal toe caps. With body conscious fits throughout, the resulting mood was a push and pull of naughty and nice, the perfect summation of Versace’s bold heritage.—Nina Stotler
