Insta-Critic: Emoji-Dressing at Versace

A heavily-sequined, glam-fueled affair is par for the course when it comes to Versace–and today’s show in Milan was no exception. What sets this season apart is a new approach to the label’s heritage. In a bold but basic palette of red, yellow, green, and blue, the Versace logo emerged as a design element, winding its way across shoulder straps and shoe heels, while alphabet letters spelled out the label’s name on sweatshirts and suit jackets. If this seems like a return to 90s logomania, think again. Donatella Versace had a decidedly contemporary take on the matter: her show notes called all those reworked logos “the emoji of the future.”
