Versace is a world-renowned symbol of glamour and finding a fashion house that matches its caliber and global identity may prove to be difficult. Born out of Gianni Versace's profound vision to contribute to the reshaping of modern fashion, Versace established itself in the public domain with novel, groundbreaking and exotic clothing headlining its collections from the very start.

The brand has deep-rooted affiliations with a celebrity clientele that has turned-heads adorned in head-to-toe Versace, which is acutely the reason for its ever-growing fan base. The menswear collection, in particular, is a strong embodiment of the Versace ethos and everything it stands for. The collection is distinctive for its gorgeous, pattern silk shirts underlining a strikingly classy silhouette and a variety of vivid prints.

The Versace silk shirt, championed by those like Bruno Mars, Drake, P Diddy, the Carters and more, is among the fashion house's classic and quintessential pieces, worthy of an investment. The Spring-Summer 2020 collection of men's silk shirts feature the Le Pop Classique prints in all its vibrant glory. It is the resurrection of the brand's most recognizable elements, unraveling in shades of saturated color. What's more is that these designs challenge the universal idea of masculinity - with its maximalist styles in statement-making bright colors, daring and whimsical patterns, and creativity redefining the usual stereotype surrounding the masculine character.
