Versace Jeans Couture introduces their Pre-Fall 2020 collection, fusing ‘60s and ‘90s aesthetics with the irreverent spirit of modern-day street culture. The collection includes style nods to the past, referencing iconic silhouettes and designs. You may not be aware, but pretty much everything you wear is inspired by subcultures and tribes. From the skate scene to outdoor culture, everything ties back to a community and the style that goes with it. Let’s take a look at how Versace Jeans slickly references underground music genres and street culture.
Paisley Fantasy Print Shirt
A toast to ‘90s excess, this shirt revisits the underground rave culture of the era. Imagine yourself in a massive warehouse with trippy, pulsating graphics relayed on video screens whilst dancing for 24 hours. The vivid print on this short-sleeve shirt could easily have been lifted from one of the screens.
Cropped Denim Jacket
The great thing about being in a gang during the '60s was the part where everybody wore matching jackets. Evoking the essence of identical-denim clad '60s girl gangs, this cropped jacket elevates the look via signature triple gold-tone stitching and golden collar tips. Which means you can channel all of the tribe's attitude, without having to worry about rival gang members or messy initiations.
Paisley Fantasy Print Shirt in Black
London gave birth to UK garage in the ‘90s, the genre blended styles such as garage, house, R&B, jungle and dance. The fashion that accompanied the music exemplified 'dress to impress' – it wouldn't be out of the ordinary to see someone wearing a three-piece suit with a bowler hat or an all-over print co-ord. This relaxed yet dressy shirt is a minimal take on the aesthetic, combining paisley and animal prints and finished with a boxy silhouette. Finish the look with a pair of Horsebit Loafers and you will be at the top of every UKG guestlist.
Mixed Print Mini Dress
Riot Grrrl was an early ‘90s pro-femme punk movement. A nod to its ever-so-rebellious attitude, this mini dress revisits the movement's reclaiming of stereotypically 'girly' tropes. Designed with cotton-candy pastel tones and puff sleeves, this bold piece is finished with a flared skirt. Link up with some 6-inch DMs and the look is locked in.
Taking ‘60s style cropped shirts to the nth degree, this piece reimagines the vintage silhouette in a neutral safari-inspired colorway. Made from premium cotton, the relaxed style features triple gold-tone stitching and heritage golden flaps on the chest pockets.
