V Focus on the Genius of Gianni Versace

Even ten year's after the death of Gianni Versace we at VagaBondnyc are still enamored with his legendary work and are always on the hunt for great pieces that highlight his many fantastical trademarks.

In the early 80's he garnered a cult following with his well-tailored, beautifully printed haute-bourgeois clothes that were bodaciously sexy while everyone was turning to Italy for the beige-ness that is Giorgio Armani. This was way before the Cavalli's and Etro's entered the big picture. Versace took neo-classical Italian motifs and banal floral prints to the limit by magnifying them and saturating them in the brightest of hues and took it even further with super-sexy shapes.

And it's his early 90's era we wanted to focus on not only because we love the early 90's, but because body-con is still back, and it was during this time that Versace took restraint and created clothing in much more classically figure flattering shapes.

Pass everyone up in their au currant Givenchy studded gear with this supremely chic tailored blazer with subtle pyramid and Medusa studs. Or skip the Leger tabloid trend with this sexy knit hourglass dress.

And think about combating spring chills with one of our many amazing printed Versace jackets. One of our favorites is the fitted mosaic print jacket that has a great shape, a beautiful curved collar and a print that is an extremely elegant and chic testament to the sheer genius of Versace.

At the moment we have over 20 pieces that highlight the incredible vision of Versace:
