Versace Men's RTW Fall 2010 / MFW-Day03

Heritage seems to be the catchword of the Milan men’s season, and Versace is bang on trend. However, for the Italian fashion house, that involves a trip back to the future via the cyberpunk universe depicted in the forthcoming “Tron” sequel.

"We're going back to the values of the Gianni Versace man from the early Nineties," said Donatella Versace. "Leather, hardware, chains, metal: He's very strong." Indeed, a strong will – and a taut physique - may be required in order to sport several of the pieces from this stick-to-the-ribs collection.

Models in shield-like eyewear sported stud-mottled motorcycle jackets with patent-leather trousers and gleaming combat boots. Fine knits were toughened up with intricately stitched-on leather and topped with epaulettes for an armored look.

Versace has an undisputed knack with a sexy, futuristic wardrobe. But given today’s risk-averse climate, the brand turned back the clock to a tricky time.
