Italian designer Gianni Versace launched his eponymous collection in 1978, capturing a confident and powerful attitude in his Mediterranean-informed menswear designs. Now under the creative direction of sister Donatella Versace, the line’s bold and masculine aesthetic continues to evolve. Fine tailoring and opulent, subculture-inspired styling make a powerful statement alongside Roman-inspired graphic prints. The signature Medusa head appears on everything from Italian leather sneakers and backpacks to streetwear and gold chain necklaces. T-shirts and hoodies in Baroque prints capture the urban vibe beloved by fans of the Versace house.
