The iconic Versace sunglasses make a comeback reminiscent of Notorious B.I.G's love for the style.
October 19, 2018
Now more than 20 years after Notorious B.I.G’s death, Versace is bringing the sunglasses back for a limited time. The sunglasses have been released as part of the Versace The Clans collection and have been given a contemporary update since Notorious B.I.G wore them in the 1990s.
“I think Biggie was amazing. He came to my shows in Paris many times, and we’d see each other often,” she said.
The Clans of Versace are the true modern royalty that stands out from the crowd through their style choices.
The new collection embodies a universe created anew, where the designs for men and women are a meeting of forces, a clash of cultures united through passion and an unstoppable desire to rock all boundaries.
Pushing the limits of time, this lightweight, ultramodern men’s shield is embellished with iconic Versace symbols, and defines a dynamic idea of street style through contrasts of colors and materials. Details are bold – the new matte 3D Medusa with a Greca gold medallion applied on the wide tapered temples. The nose piece design and gleaming mirror shades complete the look, by framing the fearless vision of a true rock star. The rich chromatic selection includes white, black and Havana.
A feminine, 80’s-inspired glamourous rock style defines this pair of daring sun frames. Challenging the limitations of time and fashion heritage, transparent colors and dark classic lines are enhanced by golden studs and a high-relief Medusa on a Greek key engraved gold medallion, adding that extravagant catwalk touch. The gold studded acetate frame displays wide temples recalling the collection’s accessories and spirit. This model is available in white, black and transparent green.
The collection is now available at select boutiques including Barneys.com.
