karlie kloss, lexi boling and caroline trentini for versace
The trio front Versace’s black and colour-blocked autumn/winter 15 collection.
Karlie Kloss, Lexi Boling and Caroline Trentini are the faces of Versace's autumn/winter 15 campaign, presenting the bold black and primary colour-blocked collection of mini dresses, cut-out gowns, step-hem coats and thigh-high boots. The models are arranged on black-painted scaffolding, against a cracked concrete wall, mirroring the catwalk backdrop and the menswear campaign that has also just been revealed. Kloss looks like a badass in a logo-banded bra top, silver Versace lettered choker, patent over-the-knee boots and a big-bird style, shaggy jacket.
"My new campaign is pure Versace, remixed and revolutionised. The power of colour, cut and the new #GREEK motif speak for themselves," says Donatella. Shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the campaign treads familiar Versace territory with 80s-style bold colour and branding - "The letters of VERSACE playfully decorate clothing, as if remixed by a DJ," says Donatella. But she also looked to the internet age, layering coats with rash vest-style tops printed with what she has called the #GREEK print, describing the new icon as an "emoji".
The men's campaign feels more outdoorsy, with models River Viiperi, Oliver Stummvoll and Alessio Pozzi in active poses, wearing soft, luxury fabrics in natural hues.
