Gianni Versace. He was the internationally-renowned couturier who
designed perfumes, leather collections, home interiors and even theatre
and film costumes. His designs captured the spirit of prosperity and
excess available to the lucky few, and transformed luxury into an image…
And this image is now recaptured by Rosenthal within the Versace
collection – a range of dinnerware and accessories designed and inspired
by this artistic name, and crafted by the very best porcelain
manufacturers in the world.
When you think of Versace, chances are Medusa comes to mind. In Greek
mythology, Medusa was depicted as a terrifying creature, her beautiful
hair a nest of serpents; so awful to behold that her glance would turn a
man to stone. But in the 19th Century, the legend of Medusa changed,
and she was recast as a hero rather than a monster. For Gianni Versace,
Medusa became a symbol of art, of philosophy…and of dangerous beauty.
Medusa Gala pays homage to Versace’s muse, rendering previous
collections in a modern, opulent colour scheme of white and gold. Surely
the most beautiful of the Medusa designs to date, the baroque pattern
remains, as does the twenty-two karat gold. Upon a base of high quality
porcelain, Medusa Gala is tremendously luxurious.
