The House of Versace: The World’s Most Famous Fashion Brand
The Versace name is legendary. Under Gianni Versace’s guidance, the Maison masterfully combined rock and roll, celebrity culture, theater, and ballet to fundamentally redefine the role of fashion in the modern world. The brand’s signature style has long been associated with glamor and intrigue. When Gianni Versace was murdered on the front steps of his Miami mansion on July 15, 1997, the Versace name became associated with tragedy as well. Many wondered if the iconic brand would survive.
Donatella Versace: The Savvy Diva Behind the Iconic Designs
Gianni’s younger sister Donatella not only kept the Versace name alive; she took it to the next level. Using her personal friendships with celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, Christina Aguilera and Demi Moore, she started dressing the stars and made the Versace name a household word.
Donatella has a strong business sense and immediately understood the importance of diversification. One of her first decisions as the company’s new Creative Director was to create a line of Versace watches. Donatella was quick to recognize that watches weren’t just timekeeping instruments. They were exciting fashion accessories and could be an important form of self-expression. Under Donatella’s leadership, Versace Watches have become one of the Maison’s most enduring success stories. These exquisite creations immediately became “must have” fashion accessories for fashion forward men and women around the world.
Donatella Versace is widely acknowledged as a fashion genius. Her almost infallible instinct for what fashionistas will want next has turned the Versace name into one of the world’s most recognizable and desirable brands. The Versace label has so much clout these days that it’s not just the fashion elite that want a piece of the action.
The financial world has discovered Versace as well. Private equity powerhouse Blackstone recently purchased a 20% stake in the company. The Versace family will still control the company’s future, but they’ll have a lot of help with a 200 million dollar infusion of cash from Blackstone. Some of this new capital will be used to bring Versace’s unique attention to detail and commitment to quality to an even wider audience.
Versace Watches, like the brand’s signature clothing lines, are the embodiment of the Maison’s signature style. Versace’s own top designers create these exquisite timepieces in Italy. Donatella even designs some models personally.
Craftsmanship goes hand-in-hand with creativity at Versace. That’s why all Versace watches are manufactured in Switzerland by master watchmakers. To meet stringent Swiss certification standards, quality is strictly controlled and maintained at all times. This unique combination of carefully controlled craftsmanship and creative styling has turned the Versace myth into something you can wear on your wrist.
The iconic styling, imaginative shapes and superb quality found in a Versace timepiece are unlike anything else on the market. With twelve exciting collections to choose from, any discriminating person has the opportunity to make the Versace myth their own.
The fashion forward Versace V-Signature line are timepieces worthy of the name. This stunning 35 mm ladies watch is already creating a sensation with its glamorous interpretation of the Versace esthetic.
Featuring an IP rose-gold case with a characteristic Versace Greek key bezel supported by two oversized lugs in the shape of a Greek key, this unique watch is the perfect complement to the entire V-Signature clothing line.
A versatile detachable black or white cuff style patent leather wristband can be worn two ways. With the distinctive leather cuff in place, the watch has an aggressive rock and roll feel. The thinner top part of the band can also be slipped out of the cuff-style base for a more feminine style and fit. This dual personality is almost like having two timepieces for the price of one. It’s up to you whether you wear your V-Signature to make a bold, edgy statement, or as a feminine dress watch. The choice is yours in red, bronze, orange, lime yellow and turquoise, as well as Versace’s signature black and white.
The boldly styled 44 mm V-Ray is a celebration of speed and sportsmanship. This handsome men’s chronograph features a dial with strongly contrasting colors. Three silver totalizers are centered in a navy blue dial with a distinctive fuchsia central seconds hand. The chronograph indexes, crown seal and button tops are also utilize this same fuchsia color.

The inspired design includes a matching cabochon crystal on top of the knurled setting crown.
The Versace Medusa is proudly displayed at 12 o’clock. There is also a convenient date window at 4 o’clock, along with a versatile tachymeter scale on the beveled chapter ring to complete the harmonious display. With its ergonomic long square-cut lugs and color coordinated alligator print leather strap, the Day Glam provides a fresh new approach to staying on time.
Versace Urban Gent
The refined Urban Gent was created by Versace to meet the needs of the 21st Century gentleman.
