MILAN — Versace is further leveraging recognizable symbols and prints from its fashion line and translating them into its latest Home collection, which will be presented with a special installation running April 10 to 14.
Staged at Versace’s storied palazzo in Via Gesù here, the exhibit will be part of the Fuorisalone events held concurrently with the international furniture and design trade show Salone del Mobile.
On this occasion, Versace has collaborated with interior designer Sasha Bikoff and artist Andy Dixon. The furniture is all created by Versace.
Bikoff’s eclectic touch — influenced by cities such as New York and Miami where she grew up, and everything from 18th-century French Rococo mixed with Sixties Space Age Modern, to Seventies French Modernism and Eighties Italian Memphis Milano — will forge the installation. The American interior designer has conceived sets drawing inspiration from Versace’s fall 1994 campaign photographed by Richard Avedon, connecting the brand’s fashion with its home line.
