Versace has just launched its new capsule eyewear collection for spring/summer 2012 entitled Etoile de la Mer, the same night of the unveiling of the brand’s first couture show since 2004. Apparently, the new collection features non other that bombshell beauty Gisele Bundchen, who has been the face of Versace’s spring/summer 2012 fashion campaign.
The new Versace Etoile de la Mer eyewear collection for spring/summer 2012 features two sunglasses and one optical model that have a very sophisticated allure. Looking perfectly in sync with the label’s fashion collection, bold and beautiful, the new eyewear capsule is featured on model Gisele Bundchen in a campaign shot in blue light by acclaimed photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
Donatela Versace who is the artistic creative director behind the Versace label, said that Gisele was a perfect choice for the brand this year. She said that:
“Gisele was the perfect choice for this campaign. Her beauty is so bold in these images and she radiates true strength and sensuality. As an iconic beauty, she is also the perfect fit for the Étoile de la Mer eyewear collection. The images of her in the collection are stunning and powerful. This is exactly the vision I had when I started the design process.”
Donatella Versace marked the launch of the new eyewear collection with a dinner hosted in Paris alonside Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Emanuelle Alt. The dinner took place at the Lasserre restaurant in Paris in the company of other celebrity guests such as Abbie Cornish, Ludivine Sagnier, Daphne Guinness and Riccardo Tisci.
