Milan, Italy – After much speculation and wait, Donatella Versace’s much anticipated and highly intimate visual history of the legendary Italian fashion house of Versace, is finally at hand.
Simply titled VERSACE, the book is said to richly chronicle “Donatella’s interpretation of Versace in the twenty-first century and her remarkable work as the curator and face of Versace.”
It contains a whopping 250 black & white photos taken by some of the fashion world’s top photographers of the 20th and 21st Centuries. Among them are Mario Testino, Steven Meisel, and Richard Avedon. One of the greatest visual aspects of the book is the inclusion of campaigns and photo shoots of the Versace aesthetic worn by greatest and most versatile supermodels of all-time. That means that names like Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista and Stephanie Seymour will be featured prominently. And of course, the tome of 336 pages could not be complete without dazzling red carpet coverage and images of Hollywood’s elite wearing Versace couture.
Donatella Versace wrote VERSACE with Maria Lisa Frisa and Stefano Tonchi. Ingrid Sischy and the veteran fashion journalist Tim Blanks are among the contributors, who helped to bring this tome into existence. This volume delivers the magnetic vibrancy, supreme luxury, and charm that define Versace.
VERSACE is published byRizzoli New York and will be available in November 2016
