MILAN – Gold studs and grommets on white tops, bandeaus, and skirts make for a resort-inspired Italian and Mediterranean collection from Donatella Versace for the Versace Spring/Summer 2012 collection. It was the idea of scuba in a very neoprene and sophisticated sort of way. “Leave it to Donatella to take a different approach–a sexy approach,” quipped Ken Downing from Neiman Marcus. Models had straight hair that cascaded down their shoulders. Arizona Muse had hair extensions! According to Downing, Donatella loved the idea of the transparent heel as if one is walking on water! Sea shells and corals wear also emblazoned and printed on dresses and shorts.
