The Harlequin: Commedia dell'Arte by Gianni Versace

Gianni Versace loved the theatrical, the operatic and the cinematic.  He was inspired by prostitutes, Medusa, the Italian baroque, Grecian motifs, Andy Warhol, bondage and spent hours visiting museums.

This early Versace lurex bodysuit with an asymmetric hem wrap skirt was certainly inspired by Commedia dell'arte and the harlequin.  But of course the Versace harlequin is a sexed up version and glamorous in a shimmering lavender lurex.  

Just how amazing is this?!
