MILAN - Donatella Versace's womenswear collection for next winter tells a story of a woman who battles and emerges victorious.

The story starts with a simple female warrior, a soldier low in the ranks with just a smattering of gold buttons on the bias-cut uniform, snug-yet-modest dress.

The mood intensifies with double-breasted military style coat with epaulets, a short colored fur with metal buttons down the V-front, a cropped military jacket worn with slim trousers and satin-finish dress capes. And the collection wraps up with form-fitting sensual silky dresses worn with gold-embroidered macrame sashes and one big golden medal, Olympic style. Her victory is clear.

The looks are finished with boots of all sorts: booties, lace up calf boots and laser-cut thigh-highs. The colours are loud monochromes that project strength: red, turquoise, yellow and black.

The bling in the collection is at a minimum for Versace and the message is clear: power comes from within.

"Every woman can find that power in Versace," Donatella said in her notes.
