When Donatella took the reins from Gianni in 1997, the year she was named creative director of the Versace Group, the question begged to be asked: would this be a new Versace? Not a chance! The face of Versace has and always will be Medusa, and the Greek monster remains a constant (in both presence and influence) presiding over the Versace goddesses. Of course, Medusa is just one among many chief Versace signatures.
Through all the evolutions and changing times, there are key motifs, leather, metal, gowns, and skin. And even when she strays (punk Versace Fall 2013, anyone?), at its core, it's always Versace, Versace, Versace.
