Versace eyewear men’s collection reimagines the iconic Medusa, now designed as a hollow, tactile cast that embellishes contemporary openwork eyewear frames. The exclusive collection is followed by a campaign starring Cody Simpson: singer, actor, model and swimmer, who encapsulates the Versace man. The main frames of these campaign are three: VE 2226 is a  futuristic sun style, with edgy rimless shield lenses.. Medusa emblems are featured at the center of the lens as well as on the temples. Metallic tones complement the aesthetic of the style, available in silver with light grey mirror silver lenses, golden with brown mirror golden lenses, and pale golden with dark brown mirror golden lenses.

VE 2225 is a reinterpretation of a classic pilot shape, which features a metal wire frame. The tactile Medusa emblem is cast between the double bridge and embedded into the open wire temples. This model is featured in an array of color combinations: golden with grey lenses, gunmetal with grey mirrored silver lenses and golden with light brown mirrored golden gradient lenses. 

VE 1269 is a  contemporary optical style, these pilot frames feature a double bridge, metal wire frame, with the Medusa emblems enhancing the striking open wire temples. The sleek design comes in an elegant color palette that includes silver, gunmetal and matte black.
