Gianni Does, Well, Maximalism

I love putting this silk Gianni Versace Atelier blouse on the blog immediately after our softly minimalist white YSL smock top.  It reminds me of the famous article in WWD in 1976 contrasting YSL and Halston.  Halston as the minimalist of course and YSL as the fantasist.  But here we have YSL doing 'clean' and Gianni doing 'fantasy'.

Gianni's fantastic mind created a world of luxe Greek Goddesses (otherwise known as Supermodels) draped in the glory of fluid metal mesh toga style dresses, draped gowns and pieces adorned with the Greek Key.

  So go forth and conquer in an Atelier Versace wild silk top!

Mid 1980s Versace Atelier silk blouse with Greek Key Motif.  Fits a modern size 8.
