For the second season in a row Versace is live streaming their Women’s Fall 2011 show in Milan. Last season it was great, so I can’t wait to view the show tomorrow. I watched the Gucci and Alberta Ferretti shows online yesterday and the Burberry show a day or two ago. Watching the live streams are a great way to get into the action if you can’t be there.
The Versace show will be shown tomorrow Friday February 25 at 1pm EST / 7pm CEST. Go to Versace’s Facebook page to RSVP. When you RSVP, you will get a video message from Donatella Versace herself. Happy Viewing!
Everybody, especially on my Facebook page, has been raving about this video.
This is what the press release says:
LOVE AND VERSACE RELEASE TRAILER FOR THEIR NEW FILM ‘MODELGEDDON’
See first glimpse of a LOVE and VERSACE city, the completely original design of which was digitally created specifically for this film by Director and Designer, James Lima, with Creative Direction by LOVE’s Editor-in-Chief, Katie Grand.
Grand says: “Working with James Lima again was of course completely thrilling, and adding Versace in to the mix was very exciting. The models we used are badass cyber chicks who are so cool and fuck-me gorgeous they don’t care that the world is falling apart. James is indeed a genius.”
This city in fact does not exist; Alessandra Ambrosio, Ana Beatriz Barros, Claudia Mason, and Julie Ordon, all wearing Versace Fall/Winter 2010/11, were filmed separately, acting and reacting to the virtual world crumbling around them. Lima describes MODELGEDDON as:”Supermodels, being über bitchy, dressed in sexy Versace, shot with a RED camera, with a huge amount of computer graphic destruction, in a photo-real urban landscape”.
Official Statement From Christopher Kane:
For this Versus SS11 collection I played with combining floral, tartan stripe prints from the Versus archive, to achieve twisted and drape mesh dresses. The colour palette is very bright and optimistic (yellow, green, purple, orange, red and blue). I have worked printed mesh into longer, leaner dresses, and knitwear for a more casual sporty/grungy approach. The core of the collection is multi drape stretch mesh dresses using layers of printed mesh. Short comes in multicoloured pop dresses. Shoes and bags feature print and brogue details.
The first office look came from DKNY. This one is from Versace, and I would probably add a black shell or even a red shell underneath so I wouldn’t get fired. Heh Heh!
