Harrolds is proudly home to the SS22 Versace vault — a series of brightly-hued separates and classic accessories from the Italian luxury designer, fresh off the celebrity circuit.
Reigning Creative Director Donatella Versace has imbued SS22 with iconic prints, neon pastels and playful knitwear. And apparently, an integral muse for the collection is the label’s signature silk foulard.
The Medusa logo makes a comeback
“The foulard is a fundamental component of Versace’s heritage and character. It acts as a canvas for our iconic prints and is worn in multiple ways from knotted tops to head scarves to bag accessories, it’s a way of adding Versace attitude to any look. The foulard has been with us since the very beginning but this season turns everything on its head, it’s no longer fluid or dreamy, the scarf is provocative, sexy, wound tight.” — Donatella Versace
The legacy fashion house turned heads in its debut of the collection, with Dua Lipa opening the SS22 Versace runway show to her soundtrack “Physical”. She was joined by the likes of Naomi Campbell, Lourdes Leon, Gigi Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski, culminating in a splendorous music and arts display led by some of fashion’s most-lauded women.
Prior to Donatella’s star-studded runway show, she had even created a three-in-one, gilded space cowboy look for Lil Nas X at the 2021 Met Gala, which many of us will remember fondly.

Integral pieces in Harrolds’ Versace SS22 curation include Medusa Music printed mini skirt and jacket duo, to be worn in tandem or separately in a bold act of statement-making. Trending styles like a sheer printed top and cropped knitted cardi are peppered throughout, with Versace appealing to the current mood of joyous and loud dressing in a revived post-pandemic society.
The Versace logo is the head of Medusa (a Greek mythological figure) and also features prominently throughout the SS22 range, in a psychedelic swirl of loud colours and intermingling textures. The inspiration for the infamous Medusa logo we associate so intrinsically with Versace actually stems from the floor ruins in the area of Reggio Calabria that the Versace children played in as siblings.
Harrolds Melbourne and Sydney is currently carrying Versace’s SS22 Collection, consisting of Ready to Wear apparel, handbags and jewellery. Prices range between $560.00 and $3,160.00, and all objects of desire are made in Italy.
