SS20 Versace Sunglasses
We all know what happens when you look Medusa in the eye. If the adventures of ancient Greek heroes have taught us anything, it’s that it’s a pretty bad idea. But who knows, maybe if they’d had a solid pair of shades handy, it would have been a different story.
Versace is all too familiar with Medusa. Growing up in Rome, Gianni Versace’s childhood exposed him to a plethora of Roman ruins and ancient Greek artworks. When he set out in 1978 to launch his first clothing line, the Medusa symbol became a signature of his work. Striking, powerful and the mistress of vanity, he could not have chosen a better legend.
To pay tribute to this iconically grandeur brand, we’ve selected three Versace designer sunglasses practically dripping in opulence.
Dark Gold Signature Medusa Visor Sunglasses
Medusa, meet mirrored sunglasses. Versace gives us a modern interpretation on visor shades with a one-piece grey tinted lens. Complete with four Medusa medallions enclosed by gold frames, this design speaks to the core of Versace splendour.
White Frame Medusa Logo Glasses
The White Frame Logo Glasses utilise the recognisable shape of large square frames. The arms bring in all the luxury you need: gold hinges, a gold-toned Medusa head stud and an enamel medallion. This simple design is best paired with a white tee to accentuate the bright colour in the frames.
Visor Branded Glasses
The vintage wrap round finish to the Versace Visor Branded Sunglasses exudes such designer class they have no need for the extra Medusa medallion. With dark frames, dark lenses and studded detailing, this style is a worthy celebration of the Versace 90s era.
