She is the flamboyant fashionista known for a quirky, sexy style that combines fashion with rock ‘n’ roll and now Donatella Versace is bringing her trademark style to Dubai.
The 61-year-old, who is Vice President of the Versace Group, as well as its chief designer, has lent her design expertise to an opulent new hotel.
Billed as ‘the most luxurious hotel in the Middle East’, the five-star Palazzo Versace Dubai is meant to look like a 16th-century Italian palace with subtle traces of Arabian architecture and vaulted ceilings hand-detailed in gold.
Despite the designer’s penchant for over-the-top glitz and glamour, her latest offering is surprisingly classy.
The 215 room hotel, which is the designer brand’s second high-end hotel, boasts swanky suites, a bar designed by a music legend, and exclusive fabrics from the international fashion house.
The hotel is one of Dubai’s newest openings and whilst it’s still in soft-launch period and isn’t set to be unveiled officially until the end of this year, Donatella has certainly put her own design stamp on it.
The hotel is homage to the Versace brand, combining old school glamour and elegance with the finest hospitality. Alongside their property on Australia’s Gold Coast, this is Versace’s first foray into the hotel industry and, as you would expect from one of the world’s most renowned designers, every one of Donatella Versace’s details is exquisite.
The hotel, which was first unveiled at the end of last year, is getting set to launch Versace’s very first spa, as well as a second Imperial Suite – a superb 1,200 sq m penthouse with 180° views of Dubai.
