Rosenthal and Versace Celebrate 25 years
This year, Versace and Rosenthal celebrate the 25th anniversary of collaboration between two of the most renowned brands in their respective fields. A partnership that has seen the birth of many finest porcelain collections enriched by some of the most iconic Versace prints.
Rosenthal meets Versace first adorned the tables around the world in 1992, under the creative direction of Gianni Versace himself. He believed that, “Versace is a lifestyle and it should be an all-embracing decision for those who choose to adopt it”. Gianni’s genius has brought the Rosenthal meets Versace designs into the future under the Artistic Direction of Donatella Versace. Her vision of the brand’s fashion collections is reinterpreted on the quintessential tableware motifs, making them instantly recognizable. In celebration of the 25th anniversary, Rosenthal meets Versace issues a Limited Edition of special pieces: 25 plates and teacups featuring 25 different, legendary designs that made the history of this extraordinary collaboration, in which time, history, myth and culture are forever intertwined. 2018: Medusa Silver Collection: The Rosenthal Meets Versace 25-year collaboration is celebrated with a special edition tea set featuring the powerful Medusa symbol dressed in silver for this unique occasion. Finely crafted precious gold and silver strikingly interplaying between shiny and powder-mat surfaces.
