Versace Rosenthal Authorized Dealer
Our store stands only a stone throw away from the childhood home of the world famous designer Gianni Versace.
Twenty-five years ago, Italian fashion powerhouse Versace decided to look beyond what one wore, to how one lived through objects that would give one’s personal space its intangible, iconic aesthetic design. Versace began with a line of home textiles and followed it up with a range of fine porcelain dinner sets that resulted from a long-term collaboration with German chinaware maker Rosenthal. Beauty and perfection of the highest standards, Rosenthal signifies nothing more and nothing less. The name itself epitomizes contemporary design and art in both porcelain and glass. Rosenthal stands for luxury, lifestyle and a special aesthetic feeling. A sense of tradition coupled with the avant-garde is the underlying principle behind the worldwide leading porcelain company. Experience gathered over 130 years of company history.
Hence Versace and Rosenthal, two brands synonymous of excellence and high quality blend together creating sublime luxury. Rosenthal, icon of German tradition and innovation, has an international reputation for fine and simple craftsmanship, while Versace, the extravagant Italian Fashion House, has its own world famous and glamorous style where it brings together the historical and the ultra-modern, to arrive at timeless yet totally contemporary designs. Together they have developed elegant, refined and exciting tableware and gift collections. Inspiration derives from different historical periods and cultures.
Choose your favorite pattern!
Medusa – Ikarus, one of the first dinnerware collections of “Rosenthal meets Versace”, launched in 1993, mirrors the matchless rich, colour intensive world of Versace. The emblematic Versace pattern featuring the glorious gold coloured central Medusa head has a new contemporary look. The new form lends excitement to this classic pattern.
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 pulsating brilliance of the lively royal blue, the elegance of the black and the magnificence of the gold: a colour spectrum which dominates the extremely elegant and modern tableware collection and enshrines the sumptuous golden Medusa emblem in a deep blue sea.
Les Tresors de la Mer
The Italian gifted designer immortalized the rich sea treasures of the god Neptune and of his tantalizing Calabrian Mediterranean marine world – shellfish, pearls, star fish and corals – in a turquoise sea among golden statues, baroque volutes, and frieze ornaments. The story behind is Ulysses’ sea voyage through the straits of Messina, tied to the ship’s mast in order to resist the bewitching singing of the mermaids. This collection is ideal for those who love luxury and want something slightly out of the common with a touch of the magic allure of bygone days.
I ❤ Baroque
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 Vanity collection serves as a passe-partout to mix at one’s pleasure with any Versace Rosenthal dinner service. The matt sheen faux-uni effect of this well-known pattern has been achieved with a special golden titanium coating. The brilliant golden Versace motifs flare up from the precious dark blue and deep black porcelain, where the shades are often difficult to distinguish, providing an elegant and delicate pattern that reinforces Versace’s Art de la Table and recalls the inlay work of the varnished Baroque furniture.
Les Etoiles de la Mer
Once again Versace wishes to recall the magnificent and coloured underwater world off the shores of his beloved Calabria. A fresh new take on the iconic “Les Trésors de la Mer” dinner set. The different refined designs and pleasing colour selections – shades of grey and ivory framed by vibrant orange and delicate brushes of pink and pale green – favour a detailed choice so as to better adorn one’s home and render unique all special moments.
This is a collection which plays with elegance, sophistication and simplicity. The brilliance and the timeless look, together with the satin finish of the Medusa emblem embellishes the articles of this line enhanced by a glamour which is typical of the Versace style. The high quality crystal glasses are subtly pervious to light, harmonising both with each other as well as with all other sets in the current “Rosenthal meets Versace” collection.
Le Jardin de Versace
Le Jardin de Versace is an enchanting fairy tale garden, a romantic porcelain dream in soft pastel shades and an opulent diversity of blossoms, berries, ladybirds and butterflies that delicately rest on the golden intertwined branches. Recollection of the sumptuous gardens in Louis XVI style, the delicate turquoise and deep red, lots of gold, different shades of blue and green all lend the pattern a lightness of being that evokes springtime joyful feelings perfectly.
This glamorous Oriental glassware design harmoniously interplays with opulent and refined transparencies featuring magnificent and impressive branches of acanthus leaves topped by Greek freezes. The crystal collection, a true expression of the pure love of life, includes giftware in the form of vases, coasters and square dishes and bowls to simply display or use with their soft lines and full bodies.
The baroque aesthetics and the Versace’s luxurious richness of the Medusa Gala decòr enriches even further the glamorous Rosenthal Versace collections dedicated to the mythological creature. The Medusa becomes extremely elegant and refined against the dazzling white porcelain background enveloped by the gilded filigree and intricate baroque ornaments.
Les Reves Byzantins
The Les Reves Byzantins decòr expresses the re-discovery of an exotic-oriental atmosphere which blends symbols of Middle Eastern art with the Versace classic baroque motifs and iconic symbols of medieval art. This pattern designed by Donatella Versace guides us directly to Istanbul, ancient Byzantium, the gateway between East and West, enabling us to dream the mythical worlds of Arabian Nights.
