The Many Faces of Versace
December 30, 2016
"I believe in breaking rules...I want to get rid of the old system, work together, support each other and make fashion a true global community."
- Donatella Versace
And she has - Versace is well-known for its opulent trademark logo, flash colours and bold print and is worn by the elite and the biggest stars in Hollywood.
There are the spin-offs Versace Collection, Versus Versace and Versace Jeans, but the top designs remain under the main Versace brand.
The Spring/Summer 17 Collection tastefully combines street with Versace-style luxe Versace touch - not many brands are able to skillfully blend green, purple, blue and black in one garment. Their tastes are always somewhat edgy, yet functional the colours are easily blended into daily wear.

We've picked out our 5 Favourite Versace Glam Pieces - expect intricate design, elegant contrasts and lots of gold.
Gold Medusa Cuff Bracelet, $560 at SSENSE
Definitely the most flamboyant belt available. We think Lil' Wayne or Drake ought to bag this for Christmas - if they haven't already.
3D Crystal Medusa Belt available in the Versace US Store for $1500.
Last but not least, how sexy is this bag. It comes in a wide range of colours of leather and hardware. A solid structured bag yet with smooth lines, strong stitching and flap design, with the characteristic Medusa in Gold. This bag blurs the lines between modern crisp and functional, with classic, medieval flamboyance once again - a bag well-suited for the independent, high-achieving Type A woman.
