Versace has released a new comprehensive book featuring all of its iconic catwalk collections.
Versace Catwalk: The Complete Collections celebrates over forty years of design with a look back at some of the brand’s most iconic catwalk moments beginning with Gianni Versace’s debut in 1978 to Donatella’s collections today.
“Looking back has never been so interesting. There comes a moment in one’s life or career, when in order to evolve, you need to draw a line and acknowledge where you come from. This book is exactly this for me. More than 40 years of fashion shows, countless looks, and each of them brought me to where I am today. In this book, you find the soul of Versace. I could not be any more proud than share it with the world.” Said Donatella Versace.
Published in collaboration with the house, the book opens with a concise history of the house, followed by profiles of Gianni Versace and Donatella Versace, before exploring the collections themselves, organized chronologically.
Each collection is introduced by a short text unveiling its influences and highlights, and illustrated with 1200 carefully curated catwalk images that showcase 120 spectacular collections featuring hundreds of clothes, details, accessories, beauty looks and set designs – and, of course, the top fashion models who wore them on the runway, from Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer to Jennifer Lopez and Gigi and Bella Hadid. A rich reference section, including an extensive index, concludes the book.
A treasure trove of inspiration, this sumptuous volume offers a unique opportunity to chart the development of one of the most influential fashion houses in the world and will be an essential reference for fashion lovers everywhere.
