Versace Fall 2013 - "V" + P"UNK" = "VUNK"

“VUNK”, yes this is the name Donatella chose for her Fall 2013 offering, which was nothing but a fusion of p(unk) and” V” of Versace.

Marc Jacobs Fall 2013

Marc Jacobs's Fall 2013 show at New York Fashion Week was one of a kind visual production. The show was centered around a giant orb sun that casts a yellow (sepia tinted) light. In the first half, the models emerged under the giant orb that washed the entire room in spectacular sepia tinted light, which was quite cinematic. To every one’s surprise, each models appeared again, this time under full light, so that one could see the colour of each look.
