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, of philosophy – and of dangerous beauty.
Medusa Lumiére is the fitting name granted to Rosenthal and Versace’s stemware range, wherein this exceptional glass is blown and worked by hand for an artful, luminous appearance. Superb weight and delicate stems define the craftsmanship of Rosenthal’s artists, while each glass is punctuated by Versace’s frosted glass visage of Medusa. Glorious in their refinement, these Red Wine Glasses are fine enough for the old Greek Gods themselves.
Then again, what else would you expect from the name Versace?
