The collection referenced the archives extensively and featured key prints and motifs from the years 1991–95, the period that saw some of Gianni Versace’s most iconic collections: Butterflies, Vogue, My Friend Elton, Icons, Baroque, Animalia, Native Americans, Tresor de la Mer, Metal Mesh and Warhol.

“This collection is a tribute to the life and works of Gianni," explained Donatella in a postshow statement. "We pay homage to not only his artistic genius but to who he was as a man, and above all, as my brother. Gianni was an exceptional person for how he celebrated each day as though it was extraordinary and for how he always approached life with a smile on his lips. Each year Gianni lived, he lived to its fullest: throughout his career, he created collections that to this day are considered a cultural point of reference and inspiration to many.
