about the creator
We don’t have to present Versace, one of the leading fashion design houses and symbol of Italian luxury! Instantly recognizable, the Medusa label speaks for itself. It was founded in 1978 by world famous designer Gianni Versace and his brother Santo, who were born to a dressmaker mother. Known for his pure creative vision, the artist soon designed dresses and suits for stars such as Madonna, Elton John and Liz Hurley. After Gianni Versace’s tragic death in 1997, his sister Donatella took over as art director of the famous Italian house. Versace’s creations include ready-to-wear for men and women, shoes and homeware. The designer label’s heritage is clearly to be seen in all designs, think Greca meanderings and baroque inspired, lush prints adorning not only scarves, bathrobes, T-shirts and sneakers, but also beautiful cushions and tableware. Men can look forward to elevated sportswear and streetwear creations adorned with recognizable prints, minimalist sneakers, soft T-shirts and comfortable jogging trousers. The women’s creations stand out with intricate patterns and feminine fits: think leggings, figure-hugging tops or elegant silk shirts. Let yourself be tempted by one of the beautifully sleek Italian made handbags adorned with the iconic Medusa to elevate any outfit. After a long day, Versace has you all set with soft unisex bathrobes and beautiful towels for a relaxing moment.
