outer verspace

I'm not sure what to make of Versace's return to couture. When I think of couture collections, I think of elaborate, beautiful designs. And while there was intricate embellishment and complex corsetry going on at Versace, it all felt a bit 90s space-age to me, rather than exuding the elegance customary of couture shows. Perhaps I'm a traditionalist, but I'd favour a gorgeous gown over thigh-high boots, exaggerated shoulders and skin-tight styles any day. But then again, Versace herself did say backstage, "I call them my warrior women." Maybe I'm just a weakling.
