This year Versace and Rosenthal celebrate the 20th anniversary of their extremely creative and fruitful collaboration. This famous partnership, which has seen the birth of successive collections of the finest Versace tableware, began back in 1992 under the creative guidance of Gianni Versace. His intention at that time was to develop the idea of a Versace lifestyle and his work with Rosenthal was central to this. “Versace is a lifestyle and it should be an all-embracing decision for those who choose to adopt it," he said. Gianni Versace’s original vision is still evident in the current designs of the Rosenthal meets Versace collections, which today are overseen by his successor as Creative Director at Versace, his sister Donatella. In the same way that she has evolved the Versace fashion collections, Donatella Versace has also reinterpreted many of the most iconic Rosenthal meets Versace patterns and motifs, making them truly appealing to a 21st century customer. 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.
