Versus Versace SS 15

Versus is the youthful diffusion of Versace; hailed as the rock-chic fashion line, creative and innovative, it was Gianni Versace’s gift to his muse and younger sister Donatella – by all means the first woman to merge the music world with the fashion world, just as he brother did before her.

So, naturally, upon seeing the latest Versus line has incorporated safety pins – not only an homage to punk subculture – but also a throwback to Gianni Versace’s clothes in the early ’90’s – I bought a couple of bags because, well, punk and couture is a perfect marriage of juxtaposition and contrast, and it’s insanely aesthetically pleasing. At least to me, anyway. 

  

Band shirts: 95% of my wardrobe

I swear, I find the best places to buy band tees. I love old 80s-90s britpop/alt rock/indie pop and buying their merch has kind of become a necessity for me.

I can’t attach videos on my phone (I mostly use the WordPress app – I hardly come on the computer anymore) but I thought I’d attach a mini playlist of songs by the artists on these shirts as they’re some of my absolute favourite bands.
