While B.I.G.’s Versace shades watched ya, Donatella was clocking him. In an interview with FADER, Gianni’s younger sister discussed Biggie’s influence on the brand.
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.
