The 62-year-old designer became vice president of the Versace group after her brother, Gianni Versace, was murdered outside his Miami home in 1997, and following the success of her Spring/Summer 2018 Tribute Collection created in his memory - which used supermodels he helped catapult to fame at the height of his success, like Naomi Campbell - and she has now extended the collection of "perfect" eyewear designs to complete the look.

Speaking to, she explained: "When I designed the Tribute collection I also thought about the accessories, not only bags and shoes, but the eyewear as the perfect complement to each look."

The Tribute collection was inspired by Gianni's "risk-taking, his innovative genius, and above all his allegiance to women" and Donatella dug deep into the fashion house's archives to resurrect her late brother's iconic original prints - such as the signature gold medusa head, kaleidoscopic chain prints and the Trésor de la Mer print - to create the range of sunglasses that add an "aura of mystery" to anyone who wears them.

She said: "These prints were the starting point to create the collection, and the element that I used to pay homage to the work of my brother. They complete the look and give an instant aura of mystery and seduction to any woman wearing them."
