Get the look: Versace's stud filled Summer
Months have passed since Versace caused a storm with another H&M collaboration, and yet here we are, still obsessed, left swooning over the luxury brands Grecian-esque Spring Summer 2012 collection. If you didn't quite manage to wrestle a highly sought after leather studded jacket from the hands of designer crazed shoppers in H&M, and you can't afford a wardrobe to rival Dontella's, then don't despair - we might just have the answer to your stylish dreams! You can always trust Topshop to jump on the fashion wagon, and wouldn't you know, this week the popular brand chose to highlight stud embellished pieces on their website. 'You Stud' showcases some VERY Versace looking items (lots of monochrome colourways and gold embellishement) which we've seen on the likes of Katy Perry and most recently, Tulisa Contostavlos at the FHM 100 Sexiest Women In The World ceremony.
It's safe to say that Versace are having a moment right now, and it looks as though we aren't the only ones feeling the designer vibe - Victoria Beckham graced the cover of Harper's Bazaar China this month in the same leather studded black dress Tulisa wore earlier this week, whilst Kate Moss has snagged the June cover of British Vogue sporting a white number from the same collection. With many of the items in the Versace's SS12 show reinterpreting elements from the brand archives and drawing from Donatella's design history, the collection could have felt stuffy, but it escaped by mixing on-trend fabrics with classic details. The designer has created a studding epidemic that everyone wants a piece of, and with retailers like Topshop and River Island following suite, it's easier than ever for you and I to get the look.
The question is, will you embrace the dark like Victoria, or go angelic a'la Moss?
