The term “Vunk” was created by Donatella Versace to express her take on this season’s punk trend. Whereas Punk was adopted by the anti-establishment of the decade, “Vunk” is more luxurious and seductive. So it is basically a more grown up and refined version of Punk.
Versace’s Autumn 2013 collection was fetishised using skin tight dresses and body suits embellished with metal spikes. She also used a lot of vinyl and incorporated pleated miniskirts and kilts.
A recent visitor to my Studio in Didsbury was Mel aged 21 who was stuck in a rut and had absolutely no idea how to find herself an image. I thought a more edgy “Vunk” look would suit her perfectly. I showed her the best way to follow the “Vunk” trend by using bold accessories, studded shoes and bags. Ear cuffs are very on trend this year so I added this one from Forever 21 plus a spiked gold bracelet from Stella and Dot. The River Island faux leather jacket is really edgy and I love the contrasting material at the hem and sleeves. The rip and repair jeans are from Fat Face – they are generously cut on the thighs and taper to a narrow leg so very a flattering fit! The Juicy Couture studded belt is a bargain at only £12.
My must buy of this season is a pair of chunky heeled ankle boots – comfortable, go with anything, on trend – you NEED a pair. These ones from ASOS are perfect.
Finally a cute little tartan back pack (also from Forever21) to finish the look. Vunked!
