From the moment the chunky platform, sky-high heels trend hit the fashion world, there has been a long list of women who’ve flaunted them with supreme confidence. Designers have been quick to hop onto the trend too, but no one did it like Versace. In 2021, the Versace Medusa Aevitas platform pumps made their debut, and since then, they’ve certainly made their presence felt. Celebrities like Dua Lipa, Beyoncé, as well as top fashion influencers, have happily flaunted the ultra-glamorous shoe. Every now and then, there’s a shoe trend that catches the eyes of fashionistas, and this time it is the double-platform heels. Chunky, but so chic.
The House of Versace is known for creating powerful, stunning pieces for both women and men. Be it clothing, shoes, bags, homeware, or accessories, one knows instinctively that it’s a Versace item. The use of the Medusa logo and the clever usage of soft, luxe fabrics with metal elements is something that designer Donatella Versace does par excellence, and this is visible in the Aevitas double platform pumps.
Touted as ‘street style’ shoes, the Versace Medusa Aevitas heels are equally perfect for parties and formal events. In true Versace style, they have oodles of oomph and are just the head-turners that one would expect a luxury item to be. The shoes have glorious 155 mm heels, rhinestone-studded ankle straps with the Medusa head logo charm on one side, a smooth satin body, and eye-catching double platforms. These characteristics are very much along the lines of the playful Y2K aesthetic, while also having the unmatched quality and intrigue of an Italian luxury fashion brand. Ever since singer Dua Lipa appeared wearing the pumps in the 2021 ad campaign, curiosity and sales increased notably.
These beautiful platform pumps are highly coveted and might be hard to come by, so now is the right time to get your hands on a pair. As exclusive as they are, you can find some at The Luxury Closet and complete your shoe collection.
