It is evident that the Italian fashion house Versace has undergone a quite remarkable and perfectly recognisable change to the eyes of any human being, since far from continuing with its characteristic style or prints in the shape of fretwork and jellyfish, it has decided to place them in the background, at least for a few seasons.

Quiet luxury has been one of the clear trends of the year and Donatella Versace, creative director of the firm and queen of opulence like any mortal has noticed this, hence the company took a new direction and its proposals now look different, much more attractive and curated but without losing the essence of the house. The latter has been seen in some of the recent Versace shows, but especially in the last one held in Milan during Fashion Week, which was characterised by its elegance and minimalism. That was the moment when it was officially announced that the company was in a new era and that what was to come was interesting, to say the least.

To prove our point, just take a look at the Pre-Fall 2024 collection that has just been presented, where, incredibly, grey and black are the two main colours, except for a couple of garments that are made in shades of brown and gold. The whole colour palette used is oriented more towards the neutral type, fitting at first with the relaxed silhouettes of the clothes. Gone are the tailored suits or skinny trousers and welcomed are loose-fitting coats and blazers, worn with oversized trousers, be they jeans or suit trousers.

Sartorial is one of Versace’s areas of expertise. Few do suits as well as they do, and once again they have proved it by introducing new models (for the firm) of blazers, such as the one in look number 9, featuring a collar and a five-button system, allowing it to be worn as much for a more formal option as for a less formal one.

When it comes to casual or everyday situations and we relate it to the new line, we will find many pieces in this style. Versace has it all under control and doesn’t want you to lose your style even in the most casual moments, where jackets with zips are worn, or shirts layered over tank tops with the XS logo and combined with cargo jeans with several pockets.

Closing the collection, the design department team has chosen almost a dozen looks where one of the colours mentioned at the beginning, black, is predominant. This colour continues to be the perfect ally for the longest nights, where the quiet clothes are put away again to bring out more opulent ones and the house’s most iconic prints. Bags in different shapes and sizes finish off all the looks in the Italian company’s latest work.
