Get Ready for Vintage Versace as FX Series Premieres Tonight!

In What's New, Industry News by Lauren Parker, Accessories Magazine


“The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” makes its premiere tonight on FX, and expect lots of visual sizzle in addition to a recreation of the scandalous murder two decades ago.

Visually, expect big, splashy fashion, and bright 90s-era Miami settings. Costume designer Lou Eyrich didn’t have help from the actual house of Versace (the Versace family condemned it as “reprehensible”), so she resorted to buying vintage to capture the “heat and sizzle” of 90s-era Miami or recreating it herself. Iconic elements include rococo-style Medusa-head print shirts and loungewear for Gianni Versace and hand-studded leather jackets, jodhpur leggings and silk gowns for sister Donatella (played by Penelope Cruz).
