A long-awaited and highly intimate visual history of Versace, the globally renowned Italian fashion brand. VERSACEholds its place firmly in the fashion world as a legendary and iconic luxury brand.
Taking over the artistic direction of the family-run fashion house in 1997, after the tragic loss of her brother Gianni, the enigmatic and alluring Donatella Versace has since catapulted the brand into the future.
This richly illustrated tome chronicles Donatella’s interpretation of Versace in the twenty-first century and her remarkable work as the curator and face of Versace.
VERSACE includes exclusive contemporary and archival imagery from runway and backstage shots to intimate scenes at the Versace atelier, with accompanying original essays penned by fashion’s most authoritative voices.
Featuring photography by Richard Avedon, Steven Meisel, and Mario Testino among many others; images of Versace fashions modeled by the original "supers," such as Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, and Linda Evangelista; and red-carpet coverage of Hollywood’s elite wearing dazzling Versace couture, this volume delivers the magnetic vibrancy, supreme luxury, and charm that define Versace.
