Donatella Versace presented during the Salone del Mobile,
the Versace Home’s latest OTT wares with the Haas Brothers.
Next week’s Salone del Mobile, the annual Milanese furniture fair,
will include plenty of Italian labels, as usual.
Donatella Versace, will takes the occasion of the fair to show off
Versace Home’s latest OTT wares. This year, she teamed up with
the young L.A.-based Haas Brothers, who have already contributed
one-off pieces to Mario Testino shoots and been commissioned by
Peter Marino. For Versace, they created pieces like the Honeycomb
club chair and the demurely named Bondage bench. “The process
is very important to us,” Nikolai and Simon Haas told style.com,
“It starts with a spark of inspiration and then becomes a tangible form.
Donatella was the spark, and this furniture collection is our
interpretation of the legend and the house of Versace.”
The spark herself had this to say: “I love the new iconic pieces the
Haas Brothers have created for Versace Home. They have captured the
essence of Versace today, with pieces that are grounded in tradition
while also looking fearlessly to the future. It’s amazing how they have
taken elements from Versace’s fashion DNA and remixed them to
make pieces for the home that are fresh and new. I enjoyed working
with the Haas Brothers so much, they also created some special
graphic animal prints for my recent Fall 2013 womenswear show.”
