The Mythological figure became a symbol of fashion royalty courtesy of Gianni Versace in the late 90s and froze everyone in their tracks when she showed up on shirts, scarves and sunglasses. Will Medusa rise again? I'd love to see her bold and gold on pillows and throws, or on the backs of Men's shirts perhaps?
Speaking of shirts my first knowledge of the Versace brand came from Hip-Hop (I used to love her, but that's another post....). A Versace silk shirt made a statement. The mixture of chains, lions, and the aforementioned Medusa made a perfectly imperfect masterpiece that was turned into a men's shirt. Hopefully there will be a few in small sizes so I can add one to my wardrobe, Puff Daddy twirl not included.
The only thing that Donatella loves more than leather is colorful leather. Maybe we'll see form fitting pieces in bright fall friendly colors like red and purple. And leather pants? You can bet your money on a perfect pair for men and women. Oh yeah fellas....
Versace has never been one to shy away from showcasing a woman's form (Elizabeth Hurley and Jennifer Lopez can attest to that) so expect body conscious dresses with gold accents and peek-a-boo parts right in time for holiday the season.
5- High Voltage Accessories
What's a collaborative collection without accessories? Hopefully they will follow in the footsteps of previous collaborator Lavin and offer some fierce sunglasses. Maybe we'll get some with gold medusa temples a la Biggie Smalls. It's all good baby, baby!
