Christopher Kane for Versus Fall/Winter RTW

I last heard of Versus probably a decade ago. So when in 2008 Donatella hired Christopher Kane to revamp the Versus label - things could only get better. Versace is no fool for going after a hip young designer like Christopher, and I'm surprised they haven't done it sooner.

Kane's second collection for Fall/Winter RTW was surprisingly very Versus - he didn't run wild, and injected very little of his own aesthetic. You can clearly see the classic Versus girl with minimal touches of Kane (like his range of punk t-shirts with Bruce Weber photograph prints).

All in all, I loved this collection - Kane did not dilute the brand and has definitely placed Versus back on the map!
