Versace always has and always will be one of my favourite brands. You can’t beat that bold, sassy, Italian glamour that the megabrand exudes. As far as timeless fashion throwbacks go, Versace is always at the top of my list.

When someone says ’90’s Versace’ what comes to mind? For me, it’s the original supermodelS: Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, Claudia Schiffer, and the rest of the stunning squad. Secondly, I see prints galore namely leopard print, baroque print, and chain print all juxtaposed together in an array of bold brights. Then I see lots of chunky gold jewellery, accessories and detailing. Lastly, poses. Strong, sassy angles and faces that instantly capture your attention.

The late Gianni Versace was a creative mastermind. He was the first designer to effortlessly link fashion to the music industry. Some of his most famous 90’s music industry credits included costume design for Michael Jackson’s HIStory Tour, 2Pac’s custom designed gold medallions, and a powerful partnership with Madonna as the face of Versace. The fashion house was also awarded the American Fashion Oscar in 1993, and quite rightly so.

Let’s take a trip back to the high energy ‘Gianni Versace 90s era’:

Divine.

The best thing about this timeless brand is the fact that although the trends evolve over the time, the Versace look and feel transcends through the seasons.

90s Versace, I’ll love you forever.

Love, Ms.Raé xo
