So many of the famous Italian fashion houses are multi-generational affairs. But Versace has risen to fashion’s elite circle in fewer than thirty-five. Founded in 1978 by the late Gianni Versace, this design firm is known for its ability to span many different areas—from high-end couture to more casual clothing to house wares —without forsaking its devotion to beautiful design.
Versace’s designer sunglasses are in keeping with this design philosophy.
Versace’s line of designer sunglasses has very distinct looks for men and women. Men’s Versace sunglasses tend to be sportier and sleeker, with many aviator-inspired and wraparound styles. Brushed metal accents, rimless lenses and cooler colors prevail.
Versace sunglasses for women, however, tend towards film-star style glamour of the old school with the occasional dose of color or jewelled embellishment.
One thing is constant in both lines: commitment to quality craftsmanship and durable, beautiful materials.
Two of the most visible celebrities seen in Versace sunglasses are both pop stars. Madonna is a personal friend of the Versace family, and has been seen wearing their shades. Elton John, long known for his flamboyant fashion tastes as well as his flair for composing, often sports custom Versace designs when performing.
