      I really like the blue and the grey pinstripe suits in the first couple of rows, and the burgundy one further down.

      • carlaaxtman

        The cut out cardigan sweater thing on the far right, first row: A WHOLE BUCKET OF CRAZY. And those sandals. I just can’t.

        • marlie

          Oh, yeah. The rest of the collection is batshit crazy. No doubt about that.

        • jenno1013

          Henry Cavill could wear that very look when he comes over to my house and I would find it in my heart not to mind the crazy.

      • drdarke

        I can’t agree, @disqus_zkPCxYvnya:disqus – look at how those damned jackets bunch on the models! How the Hell are they going to look on an “Executive Fit” kind of guy like me?

        That is a whole bunch of ugly and crazy going on there….

        • e jerry powell

          I don’t think these are intended to be worn by any men over about 28 anyway. Donatella has no fucks to give about people who actually have to work to afford her clothes (unless it’s a direct commission, and frankly, who’d go to her if they can go to Armani?).

          • drdarke

            Well, I’m sure not going to wear any of these outfits, @ejerrypowell:disqus !

    • crash1212

      Large colorful leeches have attached themselves to those models – alert the authorities.

      • Domo_Konnichiwa

        Some of them are mating, mostly orgies on the thighs.

        • DilettanteDeconstructed

          Hmm. But can you blame them?

          • conniemd

            LOL really. I almost spit out my wine on my laptop at the thought of being a large colorful leech attached to a nice muscular man-thigh.

      • Qitkat

        And the creepiest ones have large black tongues reaching out to, uhh, best not to go forward with this thought!

    • PastryGoddess

      By powerful…she means thighs

    • Domo_Konnichiwa

      Hypercolor T-shirts are back! For 10 times the price!

    • random_poster

      Something is seriously wrong when abut a third of the way down I just start scrolling to see how many colors of that athletic tape they used. Seriously, people? You ruined the effect of some very nice suits with that crap.

      • Sara

        You weren’t the only one. They do realize the kt tape is only effective when put on the body, not on suits?

        • Glam Dixie

          And according to my daughter’s orthorpedist it doesn’t work on the body either. Purely decorative.

      • fursa_saida

        SO DISTRACTING. I had to scroll back up and force myself to look at the clothes. I’m still legitimately unsure whether most of the ones on clothes are actually part of the designs or if it’s just…the inexplicable runway gimmick. This should not be what I’m thinking about when I finish looking at your collection.

    • StellaZafella

      The color pieces are Peter Max-ilicious…but Speedos and sweatshirts AND body art???

    • Blair Sylvester

      Suede shorts? Finally where have you been my whole life!

      • AmeliaEve

        I think the term you’re reaching for is “Lederhosen.”

    • j_anson

      I’m assuming they were drawing inspirations from GI Joe, Saved by the Bell, and You Can’t Do That on Television.

        .”timelessness of Versace’s iconography”
        Or as I like to call it, retread nightmare

      • demidaemon

        I also see a bit of Blaine of Many Colors here (PR Season 5). Perhaps he found a new job?

    • majorbedhead

      Someone tell me those are bathing suits and aren’t meant to be shorts. Because if they’re meant to be shorts, I think I’m going to have to go lie down. And not in a good way.

    • PastryGoddess

      These guys need titles:
      King Dandy
      The Prince of Fops
      The Duke of Natty
      The Earl of Vain
      ….continue

    • Shawn EH

      At least the shoes are never afterthoughts for Versace.

      • Pudgy Possum

        Yes, they are some beautiful sandals and dress shoes on display!

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      Can’t. Stop. Laughing.

      • Clueless_Jock

        Versace always seems like a parody of its 80s self.

    • http://dontmakeitlikeimdumb.blogspot.com/ annabelle archer

      OK…I’m going to ask…are they stuffing? ‘Cause there’s a lot of not so subtle bulge action happening here. Also, Gay Terminator in Old Man Leisure sandals has made my day.

      • TAGinMO

        Except, weirdly, in the speedos, no?

      • CommentsByKatie

        And this comment has made mine. Bless you.

    • Frank_821

      As often the case this runway is way over styled and stylized. There are actually several good and sell-able pieces in the collection. And even a few pieces that can accommodate a broader demographic. You just can’t tell that from the way it’s put together. The paint swirls are stupid.

      • MilaXX

        I was thinking multicolored ceti eels.

    • Sara__B

      (It’s always hard to notice the clothing more than the models.) At first I was amused by the silliness, but I quickly got bored. There are definitely some wearable suits and separates in there, but nothing special.

    • Lori

      “the force of tailoring”

      I like well-tailored clothes as much as the next person, but this made me LOL. And then I looked at the clothes and LOLed again. Thanks for the mood-lifter Versace.

    • TAGinMO

      HHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

      No.

    • Danielle L

      LOL! Expensive bandaids!

    • Glam Dixie

      The whole first row and some of the suits are pretty fabulous, after that it gets a little lolzy.

    • JP

      For some reason I had a brain fart and thought the headline said “Ralph Lauren” and I was all “WTF is this crap?” But then I double-checked and see it’s Versace. Carry on.

    • Synnamin

      Christ on a cracker. Do we REALLY need to back in 1989??

    • MilaXX

      I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it’s not that bad. The way the runway is styled makes it hard to tell, but there’s a lot of workable looks there. Most of the suits are pretty decent and even the patterned pants could work on the under 30 hipster crowd.

    • sleepycat

      Give me a T-A-C-K-Y, what’s that spell? Versace! Goooooo team!

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gaby

      Distracted by the technicolor worms crawling all over them. Ewww.

      • Kathryn Tewson

        I think it’s supposed to be athletic wrap tape

    • Jake Donohoe

      I think it might be indicative of this collection that I started immediately singing “Its raining men…” in my head. Sweet little homo sexiness. I want to eat. them. up.

    • Fordzo

      They’re all reminding me of Max Headroom. I really don’t want to revisit Max Headroom.

      • NOLA_gal

        The clothes are fine, but the models are scaring me to death! They’re like Max Headroom without a sense of humor. Yikes!

    • Wendi126

      Guy on left six rows from bottom appears to be sporting an enormous red boner

    • Slade Thunderdragon

      I think I may be the only one, but I really think this collection is cool and fun. I want some of the really colorful pairs of pants and the sweatshirts/tank-tops with the paint swirls.

    • EveEve

      Top row, right – those are the most perfect pair of legs on a male model, ever. I stopped there.

    • quiltrx

      I like the pants with all the button tabs, and the leather jacket with the, well, balls on it. That’s about it.

    • JauntyJohn

      I call a cheat! The neon arm eels pop so hard that they drastically change the look and line on the sleeveless shirts.

      And, private to Mr. Cavill: Pssst. Henry! If you must do wide ties, check out the small knots on these babies. Makes for interesting contrast and much more contemporary than those fabric throat-broaches you’ve been sporting.

    • joything

      Erm, what exactly is Versace’s “iconography”? And why is it “timeless”? Plus the guys in the all-color suits look like they have been at a Holi street festival in India. Which is not a bad thing.

    • a_liking

      i’m sorry, but eighth row down on the left — literally looks like a comically large erect penis sticking out of his underwear. why.

    • Annarosa

      the sweater in the first row is so Channing Tatum.

    • demidaemon

      It goes from “hmm, I like” (the earlier suits, especially the red one) to “crack is wack” (pretty much everything else) pretty quickly.

    • demidaemon

      Holy crap, I just scrolled up again and saw the tie-dye unzipped prison suit. Why, Donatella, why? *cries*

    • hellkell

      A jumpsuit? A multi-colored but mostly orange JUMPSUIT? Donatella has up and lost her mind.

      OK, I totally want to see Walt and Jesse rocking those on Breaking Bad.

    • ChaquitaPhilly

      Love a lot of these nutty looks but I’m not sure about the leeches. Do I sense the next movie trend? ATTACK OF THE DAY-GLO LEECHES 3D-Christmas 2014!

    • PeggyOC

      When did they lose the ability to design a crotch? All of these trousers are super baggy in the rise and bunch oddly. It’s like bad PR work out here.

    • AmeliaEve

      They forgot to wear their smocks at art time and got poster paint all over their primary school uniforms.

    • Alyssa

      Why are they all wearing KT tape? Do the models all have joint problems like me?

    • Sunshine16

      Donatella – please be a dear & make those tan pants with the black buttons down the side for us ladies!

    • Sushy Gooroo

      I don’t understand why the very first model wears GRAY GRANDPA SHOES to this multi-coloured orange yellow red green ensemble that looks a bit like something Edina Monsoon from ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS would wear. It makes no sense to me and it bothers me more than words could ever express.

    • formerlyAnon

      Some nice suits. Love the fabric (green with a windowpane? design woven in) on the left in row 5, want to see that in long trousers.

    • KTBSN

      really loving the colors with this one

    • lalahartma

      Eww

    • sunnycalif

      They can’t really sell this stuff–can they?

    • CommentsByKatie

      Even the 1980’s would have laughed at this collection. Multi colored penises tacked all over everything? For Christ’s sake. This is a joke.
