Opulent Pool Party Attire: The Versace Spring/Summer 2015 Collection Heats Up the Runway

The Versace Spring/Summer 2015 collection sets an opulent tone for the season and reminds one of 90's nostalgia. The Miami-themed menswear presentation pays homage to its founder, late designer Gianni Versace, an icon known for his lavish lifestyle and love for the beach-side city.

Sand, sun and cocktails come to mind when looking at his sister, Donatella's latest showing for the Italian fashion house. The brand's latest collection is youthful, daring and makes us long for our next tropical vacation.

Standouts from the opulent line include baroque print swimwear, perforated denim separates and medusa head pendant necklaces that are a signature to the label. Models are styled to resemble Greek gods and pull of masculine one-piece suits and towel toga ensembles that show off their toned bodies and perfect tans.

Once again, Versace doesn't disappoint with this opulent beach-wear line that is perfect for luxe pool parties or rooftop tanning sessions.

Little Mermaid Menswear: The Bobby Abley Spring/Summer 2015 Collection Shows its Love for Ariel

Incorporating facial features from the most beloved characters of Disney’s ‘The Little Mermaid’ on boxy, structured sweatshirts, the Bobby Abley Spring/Summer 2015 collection re-appropriates Princess Ariel, her friends, and her foes into a rad line of streetwear that echoes styles from the era the film was produced.

Iridescent fabrics and tinsel-like fringe play on the fairytale, sea theme as well, while distressed pieces add masculinity to what is an otherwise playful menswear collection.
