For the past few seasons Donatella Versace has been hitting fans with a healthy dose of nostalgia. She’s been crafting recreations of some of the house’s best-known looks, and just recently she put a new twist on a house icon: the safety-pin dress! Yes, for Pre-Fall 2019, which was shown in New York City, the designer has brought back a dress that was an absolute scandal in the ’90s.
The original dresses were designed by Gianni for his Spring 1994 collection. One of them went on to become a pop-culture icon when Elizabeth Hurley wore it on the red carpet that year. In 2012 Lady Gaga introduced it to a new generation when she wore it.
Donatella didn’t stop at the dress though — the ’94 collection featured safety-pins on an array of sexy wares, including blazers, and the Versace matriarch made sure to give us updated versions of those looks as well.
