Anja Rubik by Mario Sorrenti for Vogue Paris March 2013.
Go behind the scenes with French Vogue at Haute Couture spring/summer 2013 Fashion Week in Paris. This episode features Versace, Dior, Giambattista Valli and Iris Van Herpen’s amazing 3D fabric designs.
Striking a mood between baroque and rock, Donatella Versace named her pre-fall collection “Barock.” She played with the house’s iconic emblems to enrich the daywear-focused lineup, putting strong shoulders in the limelight and keeping pants slim. The clean pieces were embellished with opulent decorations, such as baroque embroideries made with flattened gold thread on denim pants, jackets and tops. Leopard patterns also were prominent and came printed on a velvet tuxedo and mixed with Medusa and other Versace symbols as the season’s new pop print.
