The Le Grand Divertissement collection echoes the fabulous, opulent parties of the French Royal Court of Louis XIV and in particular the first luxurious ball held in Versailles to inaugurate the palace as the royal family’s official residence – a lifestyle which directly recalls the exclusive Versace after show parties.
Versace’s iconic Arabesque leaf design is proposed on a tantalizing white background emphasizing refined details that complement any table-top style.
The Arabesques in intense purples and blues are combined with a bright golden surface.
The Versace Medusa is again involved in the pattern.
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 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.
