mmmm it’s way too much. I only could wear (if I had the money to afford it) the long red and blue coats and the brown short jacket with beige pants. Those are the only clothes I’d wear from this entire collection. Thank you Donatella, now, sashay away my dear.
Too much is right. What to wear at an upscale leather bar in Montana, maybe? Except for the guy in 5th last photo. Who somehow ended up in the leftovers from the wardrobe department of Young MC’s “Bust a Move” video shoot.
Very very bizarre, yet amusing, collection.
This is hilarious
That’s what I thought too. The whole thing made me smile because it’s so over the top. I had to keep scrolling down to see what the hell else they made these boys wear.
Sorry “down voter” but this is actually and totally hilarious (except the red coat is gorgeous!)
Genuinely sincere question from a non-Disqus-pro: why do people care about down votes? Is it just about hurt feelings, or is there some kind of Disqus algorithm that counts them up and holds them against you in some way?
I don’t speak for everyone of course but I think it’s just the idea that someone who “downvotes” rather than commenting directly is just being negative without letting the original commenting person know why… some times it’s obvious (the original post itself was body snarking, a mean statement, etc) but sometimes it’s impossible (and annoying) to know what the hell the “down voter” is objecting to…. which is why I think most of us dislike it…
Ah, ok. The whole concept is interesting! I guess there’s a reason Facebook doesn’t have a “dislike” button…
In addition to what Imasewsure said, the interpretation around here is that downvoting is almost like saying “I don’t like what you said” as opposed to “I don’t agree with what you said.” One could argue that that’s all semantics, but it’s just something that’s not generally done on this site.
I agree…this is a site for opinionated people…down voting anonymously without comment just seems…juvenile, like y’know?
I’ve always viewed the voter thingy as a means to agree or disagree whilst saving paper. most of my posts are entirely unnecessary – heh – but it’s nice not to have to drudge through post after post of the same sentiment. so, the votes give people a means to chime in without overburdening the pace of the conversation. however… a down vote can be chickenshitish – unless the poster you’re disagreeing with is being a total turd. then it’s ok to just vote the post down and move on. peer pressure can be a wonderful thing.
It depends on the culture of the site. On some, a downvote is just a “hey, I think Versace hung the moon and you think differently”. On this site, differences of opinion are celebrated as long as you can make your point clearly and (if at all possible) hilariously and with no ad hominem attacks.
The only problem I have with them is that if the comment collects enough of them Disqus will eliminate it entirely, which then leaves a thread of people responding to something that isn’t there. Otherwise I don’t care if people downvote me – we disagree, that’s fine.
This is all very illuminating. Thanks, everyone!
Yes to the long red trench. Nice! Though I think the sleeveless bandanna-inspired shirts are pretty imaginative and interesting.
The brown windowpane plaid suit in shot 5…not the trench, just the suit…yum.
Oh yes, that too. Even the tie there is interesting. Why can’t ties get more creative like that?
Took the words right out of my mouth.
The Village People: 2014 edition
Once again, I post before looking at the others. Great minds?
I almost said it too. It really is blatantly VP, which is amusing but not necessarily how I imagine most men want to look.
Was just about to say the same. For the reunion tour the construction worker has been replaced with a very camp hedgefund manager.
My first thought was Castro street on Halloween.
Bedazzled bikini bottoms under bedazzled crotchless leather chaps. What.
I’m doing that weird silent laugh thing at my desk right now. I just can’t…
Sex costumes. It’s a growing field that Versace just had to get into.
For the Texas gay who can’t go home alone in all of us. or for male prostitutes
Well, Yippee-i-o-ki-ay. Weren’t we done with chaps-over-underwear after Al Pacino in “Cruising?”
BEDAZZLED Village People!
Chaps and panties! The helmet will protect your head, but watch out for your junk.
Versace even makes sure your junk is fashionably covered with diamond-studded codpieces.
I know. Right? Are codpieces a thing again?
Women get unnecessary warm-weather scarves; men get diamond-studded codpieces.
And crotchless chaps. Argh!
Also, the underwear with chaps made me laugh out loud. Also also, all of the black leather stuff looks like it came out of George Michael’s closet ca. 1988.
If Liberace ever had a kid, as a toddler, this collection would have been what it wore.
Sorry but Baby Liberace would have been in head to toe gold lame and/or sequins and glitter!! This might have been his teen look however
There are a few great pieces mixed in among the overly loud cray cray that is the signature of their menswear line. Both red coats, the brown plaid jacket with the leather shoulder insets, and the short double breasted plush coat. The rest? Insane unwearable crap.
Oh my, I’d like those red coats for me!
These boys’ cheekbones could open a can of tuna.
This is mostly hilarious, but that 2nd red coat is pretty great.
If the runway music wasn’t Kid Rock’s “Cowboy” (I wanna be a cow-boy bay-bee) then I don’t want to know about it.
So this year Versace is taking inspiration from Tom of Finland?
The Lone Ranger Goes to South Beach.
…sigh… the only thing that makes sense is the leather chaps….
That being said… love the plaid suit & jackets and the red coat. The rest is chaps….hahahahahahahha
And the bandanna print undies! Ha ha
Donatella discovered Deadwood I see.
In fairness there is some cool, chic pieces.
othere than that this one of the gayest collections I’ve ever seen. I give it to the models for their professionalism.
Oh well at least the runway is amusing
It IS Versace.
Hahahaha, crotchless chaps. What will they think of next?
Clothes for assholes.
Oh, Versace menswear…always good for a laugh. Even gay men in West Hollywood in the early 90′s wouldn’t have worn these clothes.
Is this collection for Jewish cowboys, or do sheriff badges always have a 6-pointed star?
Like most things Versace you have to pull out separates from each outfit.I LOVE that brown plaid suit, I even like the plaid jacket with the leather shoulders. and some of the short jackets would work on the young male celebs. The chaps are just silly and most of the prints are cringe inducing.
Versace chaps? That’s a bridge too far.
Somehow they all look like pimps. Spanish pimp….Texan pimp….Scottish pimp…..Russian pimp…..Mexican pimp…..
I am foreseeing…guytorials of boy celebs in the desert dressed like cowboys. “Look at me and my bale of hay and my $8,000 leather jacket”. Still, I would shank a ho for that red motorcycle sweater…
If Nudie Cohn were still alive, he might have a lawsuit on his hands.
The jokes, darlings. They write themselves.
I will cut you with my cheekbones and/or my steely stare of disapproval. And my clothes are cowboy-pride-parade-fabulous.
i’m sorry but could this be uglier?
damn most of those cheekbones can cut glass
I was only giggling until I got to the bikini bottom/chaps outfits. Then I was cackling along with a few guffaws.
I like some of the pieces individually, but what’s the aesthetic here? College professors vs. Indians, in a motorcycle gang?
Who do I have to cut for one of those bandanna-inspired sleeveless tees?
Ugh, cowboys … must we?
Hell’s Angels should be calling for these soon.
This is pure gay Oklahoma (the musical) camp! Styled for the “talent” portion of the Mr. Gay Universe Pageant, “Bronco Busters.” Thank you for the laughs this evening Versace!
Did anyone else spot the cameos by Woody from Toy Story and Spock?
I wanted to make a Spock comment but thought it was silly! Thank you!
Oh My! And the clothes too!
I canNOT stop laughing!
That first boy is giving so much face…he’s the best thing here. I need those cheekbones for the next time I need to cut some paper!
#8 – Did Lurch and Grace Jones have a son?
And I thought the Dolce and Gabbana was literal. I laughed out loud when I got to the first chaps-and-manties ensemble.
The operative word here is TACKY.
That is Versace’s modus operandi.
whelp, there’s my hatred of Versace reaffirmed
You can never have enough pairs of chaps.
I’m glad they found the cowboy inspiration in Magic Mike.
What Adam Lambert sees hopping over fences when he’s falling asleep.
Dammit! I’ve been working on my thighs since they’ve recently been “in”, now they go and switch back to cheekbones. It’s so hard to keep up. I’m calling my surgeon now to book a consultation.
Some of these are clearly sex costumes, and others need to be seriously broken up just for eye relief, but I get it all and see how some of it could work. That bomber jacket is awesome and the models are appropriately smoking, so I can’t hate.
Love the plaid, but the rest is just mofo crazy.
I call it “Donatella invades West Hollywood.”
Too much with the leather pants as it is, WAY OVER THE TOP with the chaps.
I know there are still some gay men out there who want to dress like that, but should they?
