Versace became a staple among hip hop fans in the 90s thanks to the one-and-only, The Notorious B.I.G. Biggie popularized the glasses in his music video for “One More Chance.”
Now, the Italian fashion brand is looking to bring back a retro-styled collection with the “Biggie Frame.” Fans will be able to buy the Versace frames for only one month. The sale started this Monday, October 8, in-store at Barney’s New York, and they’re also available at the retailer’s website.
Back in 2011, the head of the company, Donatella Versace has this to say about Biggie.
“I think Biggie was amazing. He came to my shows in Paris many times, and we’d see each other often. He always used to talk so nicely about my family. I think he was so smart, so intelligent. He had such a mind. So I loved what he was doing and how he was giving people a way to know about Versace—I do think he was giving people a way to know about Versace—I do think a lot of people started to know about Versace because of him.”
