Versace are loving January Jones! Not only is the Mad Men actress the star of the brand’s sizzling SS11 accessories campaign, but she was also the inspiration behind their new January J eyewear range.
Comprising of two sunglasses frames and one optical, the range looks to the glamour and chic sexiness of the 50s and 60s as represented in Mad Men. A fan of the TV series, Donatella Versace considered January Jones to be the modern embodiment of that vintage glamour and named the new range January J in her honour.
Donatella described January as: “A perfect Versace woman for the 21st century. She is chic and elegant but deeply sensual too – it is a dramatic combination.”
Already spotted sporting the Medusa emblazoned shades, January said of Versace: “Its appeal to me is that they make women look and feel sexy, classic, timeless.”
And we couldn’t agree more!
