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…
He was Gianni Versace.
From Rosenthal comes the Versace collection – a range of dinnerware and
accessories designed and inspired by this artistic genius, 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, philosophy, and of dangerous beauty.
The classic shape of this Medusa Vase lends itself to simple
ornamentation; the face of Versace’s muse appears etched in to the
surface, and is accompanied by a traditional Greek key design
around the rim. Its endearing design is a testament to the brilliance of
its two designers.
