Versace, Versace, Versace….
When Donatella Versace presented her Spring/Summer 2018 collection, designed in tribute to her late brother Gianni, starring a line-up of the original supers, reprisals of archive Versace designs and a soundtrack that paid homage to “his risk-taking, his innovative genius, and above all his allegiance to women,” it was a remarkable celebration of that iconic Versace heritage – one which was translated into suitably glamorous sunglasses.
This season we’ll see girls swathed in silken scarves bearing baroque graphics had matching sunglasses; the tropical Trésor de la Mer print, resplendent with corals and shells and pearls, was applied to swimsuits and eyewear alike. “These prints were the starting point to create the collection, and the element that I used to pay homage to the work of my brother,” cexplains Donatella. “They complete the look and give an instant aura of mystery and seduction to any woman wearing them.”
