For 20 years, starting in 1973, Ugo Correani had created jewelry in his Milan atelier for the biggest names in the fashion industry such as Chanel, Versace, Valentino and Christian Lacroix. It was Correani who designed the ‘pearls’ that shone in Karl Lagerfeld’s first collection for Chanel in 1983, and before that he collaborated with Karl during his work at Chloe.

But the most fruitful was the creative union of Hugo Correani with Gianni Versace, with whom he met in the 1970s. Correani created jewelry for Versace, which shone not only on the catwalks, but also at La Scala in such productions as Evita, Andre Malraux and Salome.

Besides, he produced jewelry decorations under its own name. Their design is varied: something closer to the ‘classic’, something like ‘Versace’, there are rather minimalistic plastic decorations. But any of his jewelry has its own character and is inimitable. To find a second one is almost impossible.

Correani died of AIDS in 1992, leaving no heirs behind. Italian designer was a star. “When I die, I want to be buried in a red suit and a Versace shirt.”
