Founded in 1978 by the great Gianni Versace himself, the eponymous brand has been the object of much fascination in the world of fashion for decades. Propelled to an international status in the 90s, it took the ancient Greek and Roman vestiges ever-present in the designer's native region of Calabria as an emblem. The infatuation that Versace's universe generates amongst supermodels and celebrities has, without a doubt, contributed to the notoriety it enjoys today. When the talented designer passed away, his younger sister, Donatella Versace, wrote a new chapter in the history of the brand by taking over the Artistic Direction of the Milan Fashion House.
Greca Labyrinth Boots by Versace
Versace reinvents style each and every day. For the 2020 Fall-Winter collection, Donatella Versace therefore decided to go back to basics, revisiting some of the most timeless classics, such as leather boots.
Along these lines, the leather-clad Greca Labyrinth Boots, propped up on their 4.8-inch lugged block heels, exude confidence and boldness. Modern yet elegant, this model is adorned with the iconic Meander motif - as a symbol of the Italian brand - embossed along the rubber platform soles. A truly exuberant must-have available in black, brown, and orange that you can easily pair with slim-fit jeans or a dress. More than a success: an absolute obsession.
Versace's Take on Luxury Footwear
Just as luxurious yet carrying a completely different aesthetic: Women's Chain Reaction Sneakers. Launched for the first time in Fall-Winter 2018, this model is Versace's take on oversize sneakers. Characterized by XXL chain-linked rubber soles, braille "LOVE" lettering on the front, and the subtle presence of the ever-symbolic Greek Key, the Chain Reaction sneakers turned out to be one of the Milan brand's biggest hits. These platform sneakers are both fashionable and comfortable.
Last but not least, the brand's retro-inspired Virtus Mules are all the rage! These very couture high-heel Versace women's shoes are crafted from soft calf leather, featuring a jewel-like Acanthus-embellished signature "V". Absolutely iconic!
