Rare Iconic 1994 Gianni Versace Men's Safety Pin Suit

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Gianni Versace 1994 S/S men's safety pin double breasted suit in excellent condition.

Versace, using the concept of anti-establishment "slashed clothing" using Medusa gold gilt buttons and silver and gold gilt safety pins, elevated the interest and wearability from the mundane (classic) to an over-the-top punk concept in men's fashion. The 1994 safety pin collection became the iconic signature of the House of Versace.

This men's suit offers a classic look with a twist. Double breasted style boasts six (6) gilded gold Medusa-head buttons. Pleated style trousers. Both in fine Italian black wool. Each wrist fastened with gold and silver gilt safety pins; the right sleeve slashed open on shoulder seam and fastened with 2 silver and 1 gold Medusa safety pins; the left arm/shoulder seam slashed open and fastened with 2 gold and 1 silver gilt Medusa safety pins.

Condition: excellent; no wear; 2 tiny pinholes easily overlooked (which I almost did).

Size: tagged an Italian 48 and most likely professionally altered to about a size 42
