William Vintage launches vintage Versace pieces on Farfetch

William Vintage and Farfetch have teamed up to celebrate the life and talent of Gianni Versace, 20 years after his death.



As part of the partnership, 500 pieces from William Vintage’s Versace collection have launched exclusively on Farfetch, the William Vintage website and at the William Vintage flagship store in Marylebone.

The selection spans 20 years from Versace’s early designs in 1977, through to his final Autumn/Winter 1997 collection, and is believed to be the largest collection ever to become available. It includes rare and important pieces from Versace’s most iconic seasons, such as the Warhol-inspired ‘Pop’ collection of 1991, the ‘Bondage’ collection of Autumn/Winter 1992 and the Spring/Summer 1994 Punk collection.


 

William Banks-Blaney, Founder of William Vintage said: “Gianni Versace was about pure, unadulterated glamour and his collections were always joyful. Within that exuberance was a designer with an eye for precision and superb tailoring and who above all else loved women.”

The late designer is credited with inventing the celebrity front row and the concept of a supermodel as a confident, unapologetic and unashamedly feminine woman.

Candice Fragis, Buying & Merchandising Director at Farfetch added: “As we continue to cultivate a selection of the world’s very best timeless and unique luxury pieces, we are so excited to partner with a vintage brand as prolific as William Vintage. The collection perfectly represents the iconic years of the brand with Gianni Versace at its helm. We are honoured to unveil this collection to our global customers via Farfetch.com.”
