Highlighted by recurrent neoclassic symbols interchanging in geometric circle bands, this dinnerware collection brings a regal touch of style to the table.
The charm of glamorous past epochs blends with the opulent Baroque print, urns, laurels and ornaments and the modern colours like mat black, red and accents of gold.
The wonderful Medusa head icon is queen of the collection enshrined by neoclassic designs.
According to ancient myths Medusa was one of the three Gorgons which in Greek mythology were sea monsters with gold wings, snakes for hair, and turned anyone who looked directly at them to stone.
The three sisters represented perversion in its three individual forms: intellectual, sexual and moral.
Medusa’s snake shaped hair locks were a punishment from Athena.
The once extremely beautiful mortal was punished by Athena with a hideous appearance and loathsome snakes for having been raped in Athena’s temple by Poseidon.
Gianni Versace chose this Greek mythological figure as his luxurious logo because she made people fall in love with her and they had no way back.
He hoped his Maison would have the same seductive effect on people.
