Versace sunglasses for men and women
A stylish pair of sunglasses can transform even the most basic outfit, and that's especially true of Versace. The iconic Italian brand can make even a T-shirt and jeans look luxe and high-end.
Here's a history of the Versace brand and its style, along with a roundup of some of the most popular styles of Versace men's and women's sunglasses today.
About the Versace brand
Born on the coast of Southern Italy, Gianni Versace learned the art of fashion design from his dressmaker mother. In the 1970s, he moved to the fashion capital Milan where he launched his first women's collection.
During the 1980s, Versace became a household name in fashion design. His bold choices gained the most acclaim — from holding a dress together with safety pins to his provocative "siren dresses."
The brand has since expanded to include clothing, jewelry, watches, housewares and eyewear. And everything comes with the distinctive Medusa logo.
Versace has won many fashion design awards, including four L'Occhio d'Oro awards and an American Fashion Oscar. Museums in England, Germany, Japan and the United States have exhibited the designer's work.
