Creative collaboration serves up some versatile additions to the home
Celebrating a collaboration dating back two decades, Italian fashion house Versace and German tableware producer Rosenthal have launched a limited edition of decorative plates.
TVB actress Linda Chung Ka-yang was a special guest at the unveiling in the Ruttonjee Centre, Central, last week. Chung demonstrated her flower-arranging skills using vases bearing the same Versace prints. But she said the tableware was too beautiful to be used for serving food.
'I think decorating the home with wall plates is fun and stylish. The colourful and exquisite designs of the plates allow me to create wall art that's completely my own. It's a perfect way to express my imagination in designing my home.'
Rosenthal and Versace first collaborated in 1992, when Gianni Versace was at the helm of the fashion house. The legacy was carried on by current creative director Donatella Versace, Gianni's sister.
The 20 plates feature classic prints from the archive of Versace and Rosenthal's collaborations, including the ocean-inspired Les Tresors de la Mer from 1995, Wild Floralia prints from 2002 and the 2012 collection, Asian Dream, bearing the auspicious dragon motif.
