Versace is always known for its cutting-edge style and bold aesthetically appeasing garments. The pre-fall collection continues that uniqueness and throws in bold colors like crimson and cobalt to jazz up a neutral palette.
Silk, leather and fox take up space in the collection like satin sheets in an erotic novel, but black dominates the collection, and the colors give it kick. Overall the polished looks aren’t a bad thing either.
The Burberry brand has certainly been serving up some snazzy fashions lately, but apparently they are serving up some great social media posts too. According to a study by Stylophane, the brand received the most likes for Stylophane’s Facebook Fashion Index.
With 18 posts in February, Burberry racked up more than 138,000 likes, nearly half more than January’s posts. The likes were driven by the brand’s posting of images from it’s new Spring collection which features Chocolate model Jourdan Dunn.
Social media has enabled the company to get feedback from fans as well as serve as an interactive platform for exposing consumers to products prior to their release.
