Emily Ratajkowski and Maluma are the faces of Versace’s Spring Summer 2022 eyewear campaign.
Immortalized in a series of shots taken by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Ratajkowski and Maluma fully embody the dynamism and fame of the sunglasses and eyeglasses proposed for the new season, a reinterpretation of Versace’s iconic Medusa Biggie model. The proposals are bold and gritty, in line with the two protagonists, the new style of the entire season and Versace’s photographic culture, which has always been based on images that leave their mark and last over time.
Initially popularized by Biggie Smalls (aka Christopher Wallace, also known as Notorious B.I.G.) in the mid-1990s, Medusa Biggie sunglasses have been and still are legendary today, and on the contemporary frames of the new collection they present themselves with a reinterpretation of gold-colored metal details. Acetates declined in bright neon shades or vivid white recall the exciting and casual atmospheres of the Versace Spring Summer 2022 collection and catwalk. Extremely versatile, the metallic elements enhance the elaborate optical models and the new oversized silhouettes.
Refined, cool and comfortable reinterpretation of a legendary design. The oversized feminine frame features adjustable nose pads for greater comfort, while the temples are embellished with the iconic Medusa Biggie medallion. The sunglasses model is available in gold with dark gray polarized lenses and in matt black with dark gray lenses.
