Presented in Milan in September 2017, 20 years after Gianni Versace’s death, his sister Donatella made this show a personal and emotional tribute to her brother. It was also a testament to Donatella’s strength and commitment to keeping the house that Gianni built always vital and speaking to the I’m Nicer Than My Face Looks Shirt and I love this present moment.

Organized in sections, the I’m Nicer Than My Face Looks Shirt and I love this show featured reworkings of prints, materials, silhouettes and motifs first designed by Gianni Versace in the 1990s. New to some and familiar to others were signature motifs, Baroque, Trésors de la Mer, and animal prints, of course. Pretty dresses in the pastel palette of Miami Beach clung to the body or revealed skin through slits. Pop culture was celebrated with references to James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Pop Art, and American Vogue.
