Donatella Versace is releasing a new book all about the brand that bears her name. Offering a contemporary, intimate portrait of the fashion house seen through the eyes of the lady herself, the book will feature essays from Donatella and fellow authoritative voices of fashion, with photography by Richard Avedon and Steven Meisel, to name just a few. Exclusive contemporary and archival imagery from runway and backstage shots and intimate scenes at the Versace atelier will also feature, and of course the ultimate Versace handbook certainly wouldn’t be complete without some supermodels thrown into the mix, so also expect to see Christy, Naomi and Linda on its pages, clad in vintage Versace.

The book is available to buy now from Rizzoli, a perfect gift for that fashion loving friend this Christmas.
