Donatella Versace’s latest collection is aimed at all women.

The Versace head showed off her latest designs at Milan Fashion Week on Friday (23Feb18), with the runway full of bold colours and prints, as well as the fashion house’s signature gold chain detailing.

Talking about the fall 18 line, Donatella told Vogue in a video: “(It’s) a continuation of last year. What (it) represents is the family of Versace. They are different characters. There is a punkish one, there is a more sophisticated one, the mystery woman, and the young, young school girl with sneakers.

“There is not one for this collection, it’s a lot of woman coming together and be courageous and be strong (sic).”

To show off the bold designs, Donatella hired an army of strong models to walk for her. Gigi Hadid, Kaia Gerber, Anja Rubik, Edie Campbell, Binx Walton and Natalia Vodianova were among those strutting their stuff.

Among the collection were pieces that seemed to be a nod to ’90s icon Cher Horowitz, from cult teen movie Clueless. Her iconic yellow chequered skirt suit was re-imagined for the millennial market, with Donatella creating multiple skirt suits, sweaters, jackets and trousers in purple, yellow, green and blue chequered and plaid prints.

During the behind-the-scenes shoot for Vogue, some of the models summed up what they loved about Versace in one sentence.

“She’s not afraid to take chances,” Anja smiled, while Teddy Quinlivan added: “Strength, empowerment, femininity.”
