Gianni Versace was one of the first designers who understood the importance of creating a brand that had a true lifestyle value. Since then, Versace has not only been just synonymous with clothes, but, most importantly, with a state of mind. In celebration of the 25th anniversary, Rosenthal meets Versace issues a Limited Edition of special pieces: 25 plates and tea cups featuring 25 different, legendary designs that made the history of this extraordinary collaboration, in which time, myth and culture are forever interwined.
The Reflections of Holidays Christmas collection is joyful and featured those Baroque elements that are unmistakably Versace. A large, red ribbon brings together pink, blue and violet ornaments in a unity that epitomizes the best place to be at Christmas time: one’s own home. The fitting words “Home for the holidays – where all your wishes come true” adorn the bottom of the collection’s lavish under plate.
As you enter the Milanese palazzo in Via Gesù that Versace calls home, before discovering the famous mosaic of the world’s most powerful feminine icon - the Medusa - a scenic marble staircase catches your eye. Swirling metallic spirals ascending into the Versace casa are the inspiration for the new »La Scala del Palazzo« fine porcelain dinner service from Rosenthal meets Versace collection. The architectural style of the collection is enriched by an elegant green and pastel rose palette, reminiscent of the classical Italian palazzi facades.
