You can’t beat vintage Versace for pure, unadulterated glamour. And you can now get your hands on some of the most iconic pieces ever made by designer Gianni Versace (pictured above in 1991 with some of his supermodel stars). Online store Farfetch has partnered with William Vintage – the Marylebone shop beloved by Amal Clooney, Victoria Beckham and Rihanna – to bring together a 500-piece collection to celebrate the designer on the 20-year anniversary of his death.
Unveiled this week, the edit will include designs from 1977 through to his final A/W 97 show, as well as rare pieces from the Warhol-inspired 1991 pop art collection. Utterly indulgent, of course, but if you’re after a one-off collector’s item, then this is not a launch to be missed. The William Vintage Gianni Versace archive collection is available exclusively at williamvintage.com, farfetch.com and in store from today.
