This year marks the 20th anniversary of the tragic murder of Gianni Versace, the legendary designer who founded the international fashion powerhouse. His sister Donatella, who has headed up the company’s creative department since his death, decided to dedicate this year’s Spring/Summer collection to her brother.
The Milan Fashion Week this year saw all the supermodels who rode the fame train along with Versace, come out in full force. Cindy Crawford, Carla Bruni, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer etc all walked the runway in honour of their dear friend. The watches, themselves, certainly displayed the iconic Gianni style. Full of colour and boldly displaying the medusa, these designs are reminiscent of Vesace’s daring and poneering approach to fashion in 1990s.
