The iconic Versace strikes again. Versace held their first ever Pre-Fall runway show in New York City on December 2nd, on what would have been Gianni Versace’s seventy-second birthday. It was clear that Donatella Versace was going for a major throwback theme by reviving the most iconic of the house’s designs. By going back to Spring 2000 to the first collection that ever defined Donatella’s reign at Versace; Donatella brought back Versace’s beloved muse Amber Valetta in a recreation of the epic plunging-neck green dress made famous by JLo. Donatella didn’t stop there; she went further back to 1994 and 1997 and recreated a whole collection based on the provocative pin collection of ’94 and the Jim Dine hearts which were inspired by the family’s personal art collection.
Gianni Versace established his house in 1978 in Milan with the launch of his first ready-to-wear collection. When Donatella took on Versace after her brother’s death one of her first decisions was to produce what would become sold-out timepieces. Under Donatella’s reign, Versace watches became one of the house’s major long-term successes. Combining Italian design with Swiss craftsmanship, Versace’s exquisite timepieces are not simply watches to be worn fashionably; they are legacy timepieces that are passed down generations yet maintain their über stylishness. Considered as must-have items by all the fashion-forward men and women out there; these timepieces retain a very intricate balance of being timeless pieces that are quite on trend.
Donatella is known to design some of these watches herself and with the resurrection of the house’s most memorable designs; Versace watches will be the perfect addition to any outfit dressed up or down. These watches simply appeal to all ages and tastes with a watch for everyone. While some watches depict the houses’s iconic prints, you can also find more classic pieces in black, red or navy leather with gold hardware showcasing the Medusa at its centre. For the more daring, my personal favourites are the wrap-around bracelet watches which come in a variety of sumptuous shapes and designs.
Creativity and craftsmanship combined; these watches allow you to a have a piece of the Versace myth worn on your wrist. With 12 marvellous collections to choose from; the sky’s the limit. Visit any of Time Center’s showrooms to get a glimpse of what they have in store today.
