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.
Medusa Lumiére d’Or is one of Rosenthal and Versace’s most magnificent
collections yet, taking the beauty of the original Lumiére collection and
combining it with lustrous gold plating. And at the base of each glass,
the frosted face of Medusa peers up at you, dreamy-eyed, from the
Versace Medusa Lumiére d’Or Highball Tumbler Set features:
- Designed by Versace for Rosenthal.
- Made in Germany.
- Handmade from crystal.
- Hand-finished with gold plating.
- Hand wash recommended.
- Beautifully presented in a black Versace for Rosenthal gift box.
