Versace Frames | Versace Spectacles
This highly glamorous brand was founded in 1978 by Italian fashion designer, Gianni Versace. He started his fashion line in Milan and within a decade he became world famous; his designs were seen on catwalks and in high street shops internationally. Gianni died in 1997 and Donatella Versace stepped in to take control of the company. Her sensual feminine style brought a new edge to the brand; more women became drawn to the sex appeal of the brand.
The Versace Group has another label, Versus, which also produces eyewear. Versus is the brand for the younger generations that want a hint of the brand's glamorous style in their lives. The brand also collaborated with high-street retailer Hennes & Mauritz (H&M) creating a range of affordable ready-to-wear clothing, jewellery and accessories including sunglasses. The collaboration was a massive hit with the people, celebrities and other Hollywood stars. Nicki Minaj, Kanye West and Jessie J were all seen wearing pieces from the brand's collection.
Versace’s icon of the Medusa head was chosen by Gianni; it is said that the Medusa head reminded him of the fashion industry’s dark side and the dangers of female seduction. You can find the icon on many of the models in this collection. The eyewear models in the collection reflect the brand’s identity; they are sexy and unique, with a luxurious glamour appeal. The frames would look great on contemporary men and women who possess a distinct style. If you love jewels, precious metals, and sophisticated designs, this brand is right for you.
For fashionistas and trendsetters with an urban style, do not overlook this collection because the distinct designs of the glasses can be adapted to those who have an edgier style. As long as you have the confidence, you are able to carry off any style you like. Designer spectacles are very popular and worn by both prescription and non-prescription wearers; optical frames are a fashion statement. Gone are the days when people had to hide their eyewear away from others; eyewear is just as fashionable as any other accessory.
