Gianni Versace: a passionate of art
The inspiration of the designer
Versace’s creations combine a unique way of understanding post-pop culture with a sexy and daring design. Gianni was passionate about art, especially Cubists and Art Deco, experimentation with materials and ancient history, comparing his workshop with a Renaissance studio. Declared fan of Almodóvar and Paul Poiret and great friend of Jane Fonda, Cindy Crawford, Cher, Elton John or Sting, among others, it is said that he was responsible for the phenomena of super tops in the early nineties.
Donnatella has continued with this special aesthetic positioning Versace in the top 10 of international luxury fashion brands.
The Versace Empire
It has different lines with its own identity and image that make up the Versace Group conglomerate. Among them are: Gianni Versace Couture, Versace Jeans Couture, Versace Home Collection and Versace Collection. In addition to clothing and accessories, the brand operates under the hotel name Palazzo Versace and has several locations in Australia and Dubai.
The medusa: a logo with meaning
Tradition as inspiration
The brand placed medusa and greca of classical origin as unmistakable icons, unambiguous symbols of luxury, applying them to all kinds of signature items ostentatiously.
Having been born in Calabria, in southern Italy, Gianni was very attached to Greco-Roman traditions, so mythological creatures were always a source of inspiration for the designer. In addition, it was very important for him that the brand logo represented an image of a strong, brave, powerful and beautiful woman. As is the legend of the Medusa.
