Featuring essays and photography from some of the most esteemed figures in fashion, Versace offers a contemporary portrait of the iconic fashion house, through the eyes of Donatella
Versace, Versace, Versace. We all have our own version of the iconic Italian fashion house that we know and love. There's the Versace of the 90s, those metallic mini skirts in pastel tones teamed with cosy knit jumpers, worn by the supers of the era, then there's the iconic jungle print dress worn by JLo to the 2000 Grammy Awards, Liz Hurley's safety print number, the list goes on and on.
But what about Versace according to Donatella? A new book, Versace, does reveals exactly that. Featuring photography by Richard Avedon, Steven Meisel, and more, collections modelled by the OG supers such as Christy, Naomi, and Linda (they only need one name) and essays by some of fashion's most authoritative voices, the tome offers a contemporary portrait of the fashion house seen through the eyes of its creative director Donatella Versace.
To coincide with the launch, and joined by some of fashion's most esteemed figures as moderators including Tim Blanks, Donatella will be touring through London, New York and Milan to introduce the book in person. I mean what more could you want?
Donatella will be signing and discussing the book in London on the 4th of December at the V&A, and the 5th at Harrod's.
