There might be turmoil in the Versace
boardroom, but it wasn't present in the house's straightforward, if bite-sized, Resort collection. There were two stories here: prints and embellishments. Classic tailleurs, offered in solids and color-blocked combinations, were given some oomph with the application of shimmery faceted gemstones, oversize buttons, or the more humble silvery snap—used decoratively rather than functionally. Additionally, an archival jewel-pattern print from Gianni Versace's day was cut into cheerful summer-bright separates and a swingy little dress. Whatever the back story behind this return-to-basics collection, it was a welcome palate cleanser.
