Black has been banned from the Versus girl's wardrobe in favor of steely grays and peachy pinks, punctuated by stiff injections of neon pink, acid yellow and aqua green. Donatella boldly paired striped spaghetti pants with a black-and-white floral-print blazer. Graffiti-print jackets and halter dresses matched her artfully decorated runway. For extra impact, there was an orange-pink mod coat with patent detailing.
Those Versus enthusiasts for whom clubbing comes as naturally as breathing did not go home disappointed, thanks to scalloped minidresses laden with rhinestones, tiered miniskirts, flouncy tops and snazzy ankle-sock booties in assorted colors.
