To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Rosenthal meets Versace, we have issued a limited edition of special pieces: 20 plates featuring 20 decorative designs that represent a journey through time, space, cultures and myths, telling the story of this extraordinary collaboration between these two great brands.
The decor is characterized by three “layers”: The focus of attention is a “Toile de Jouy” pattern designed exclusively for Versace and adapted from the style of historical prints from the 18th century on “cotton cloth from Jouy near Versailles”. The design with its green shading recalls Versace’s head office in Via Gesu and Villa Le Fontanellle, on Lake Como. The central motif is a portrait by Donatella that depicts a humorous allusion to her role in the company’s history, set in a medallion bearing her initials. This scene is framed by a delicate arabesque tendril – a brogue element typical of Versace – that shapes the second layer of the decor. Magnificent pink and yellow orchid blossoms round off the “Floralia D.V.” design.
