While the hue duo would probably making any fashion fan reminiscence of the days of Gianni Versace prints from the early 90s, it looks like Donatella did decide to infuse some metallic gold in her Spring RTW 2012 collection, by pairing it up with whites and pastel-colored graphic prints instead of a dead-on black.
