The 'extreme McQueen' will always stay close in our hearts & minds, but alas the king is dead and now it's time that someone transform the avant-garde into read-to-wear. Returning back to La Conciergerie, where McQueen originally showed a collection that saw Lily Cole walking a pair of wolves...

After the tribal hip-hop looks of spring, it feels that the label has done a dramatic change, to work with a softer element that can easily be pictured on a girl wanting to wear similar looks. My favourite piece in the collection, the floor length python coats with patches of that neon pastel...

Subtlety and Versace go together like pickles and peanut butter. One doesn't wear Versace to blend in, nor does one eat P&P for a bland sandwich. Donatella Versace knows this and designs clothes for women who want to be the garner attention. Versace's ready-to-war collection for fall 2013...
