Versace style is a unique mix of sensuality and modernity, its imagery an alchemical blend of the historical and contemporary. These unashamedly luxurious garments have the courage to gleam from head to toe, each semiprecious stone, piece of paste or glint of metal adding an electric quality to the impeccable line of the cut. Unprecedented asymmetries exalt the body. Exuberant prints explode with vitality and daring across the surface of the fabric. Shoes, belts and collars studded with gems proclaim a frank delight in gaudy excess. Profoundly international, a Versace style represents the triumph of Italian sartorial perfection hybridized with the Anglo-Saxon culture of individual freedom and the French love of the spectacular. Creator of the supermodel, collaborator with some of the biggest names in the contemporary photography, friend to rock stars, royals and actors, Gianni Versace was beyond question one of the most innovative, experimental and unpredictable figures of the second half of the twentieth century. This book explores his incomparable legacy. It includes 177 illustrations, 55 in colour.

On the 15th of July 1997 the world of fashion was changed forever. Gianni Versace had decided to have a change of routine. Instead of sending out an assistant, as he usually would, to collect the morning papers, Versace travelled down to his local coffee shop to get them himself. As he returned home to his Miami Beach mansion, Andrew Cunanan pounced. Firing his gun and shooting Versace twice, a fashion icon fell to his knees and left the world shocked. An eyewitness at the scene said: "There were two shots fired in his head. The police came very fast; they were trying to help him, revive him." Two shots in the head, destroying a brilliant mind forever.

"Gianni Versace's fashion is about bold and unequivocal choices. Unafraid of being denounced by those less daring and more fearful than himself, he makes fashion meant to be worn by those who share his desire for risk - who share his honesty about sexuality and his self-confidence in aesthetic choice." "Versace understands, perhaps better than any designer of his time, that fashion's place in the world is at the center of visual spectacle. With intelligent commentary and celebrated photographs of Versace designs, this book presents the Versace spectacle in all its boldness and sensuality."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Gianni Versace created a fashion house that defined late twentieth-century glamour, invented the supermodel, and sanctioned in the public consciousness a supremely self-assured feminine sexuality. His debut line in 1978 was instantly successful; in the Eighties, his extravagant designs and his vision of powerful women defined the era, and culminated in the Nineties with the supermodel phenomenon - his designs worn by those glamazons who featured on every Vogue cover. The book reveals how the more brazen elements of his design - the jewelled embroidery, the bondage straps, the safety-pin gowns - were predicated on supremely skilled tailoring, deft use of materials, and innovative techniques. Alongside are Vogue's eye-witness accounts of the Versace lifestyle - the palazzos and parties, the art, the celebrity friends. Vogue on Gianni Versace is a celebration of a designer and a house that, in only 19 years, came to dominate the catwalk and the red carpet.

The world's most successful gays are found in California and Florida, as are its most prolific serial killers. This literary thriller takes the form of a memoir in which Gianni Versace's Great Gatsby life story is cut short by Andrew Cunanan in a scene out of Cruising. The cast includes the exotic poster boy killer with a series of faces, a pair of handsome, star-crossed former lovers, two innocent strangers seized at random, the undisputed Tsar of fashion and gay Baroque design, mysterious sets of HIV-test results, secret societies, suicides, and a frenzied media coverage. The novel retells the story of that murderous spree during the summer of 1997. It dramatically recreates those events and reveals the motivations of the unique serial killer, the celebrity designer, and the mysterious narrator. Set against a background of gay and Art Deco lifestyle in South Beach, Miami, the worlds of high culture and fashion, Calvin Klein underwear models, recreational drug taking, sex (casual, anonymous, consensual non-consent), leather, S&M-B&D, and of HIV-AIDS are explored. Previous serial killers like "The Doodler" and "The Scorecard Killer" are called to account as are those who thank God for HIV/AIDS and believe that gays like devils deserve to be burned. The fear and loathing that fanned the flames in New Orleans that claimed 32 LGBTI victims in 1973 burst back into life when Gianni Versace faced his Medusa, Andrew Cunanan."
