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.
The collection now offers a new version featuring a sophisticated dark grey colour fume, the new Medusa Lumiere Haze glassware.
The ultimate in elegance and mystery.
