Versace's Gladiator–Continuing a bright-colored trend from her last spring collection, Donatella Versace's latest was not for the faint of heart. Taking fashion to a fun, frivolous place, today's showing was all about excess and bling. Dressed in sheer fabrics, metallics and showing a lot of skin, Versace's man is most definitely not the average but the exception. With enough robes to open a bathhouse, the Italian fashion house's signature print made the finished product an easy season standout. Combined with emblem encrusted gladiator sandals and oversized belts to cinch jackets and robes at the waist, the accessory won out, even when it came to suiting. With a hint of the iconic power suit, ties and pocket scarves were finished in metallics. When it came to buttons, they as well were anything but subtle. Oversized and gold, buttons adorned jackets, ranging from double-breasted to halved at the sleeves. Meanwhile, a certain sportiness and a tendency for the exotic came into play as the collection progressed with oversized t-shirts, large chains and a plethora of prints that complemented the loud range quite well.
