MOSCOW — As communism collapsed in Russia, the Versace brand moved in.
In 1991, when statues of Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin were being pulled down across the country, the label opened a Moscow boutique on a street favored by pre-Revolutionary aristocrats. Four years later, Donatella Versace visited St. Petersburg, which by then also had a Versace store.
