Object of Desire: Versace Virtus Bags

By Melissa Mae

Fashioned into a variety of polychromatic arm ornaments, Versace’s new line of handbags, dubbed the Virtus, is sure to enthral the intrepid maximalists. Introduced as part of the brand’s Fall/Winter ‘19 collection, the neoteric design is inspired by the very Roman deity its moniker belongs to.

Just like Virtus is the celestial personification of bravery and military prowess, every bag in the eponymous range is a bold character of its own, tied together by its signature golden-embellished Barocco-style V buckle. The offering carries an array of well-crafted leather bags in different sizes, ranging from utilitarian fanny packs to exquisite evening bags. It panders to all with its wide selection of colours and finishes, offering bright colours such as turquoise, fuchsia and coral red for the risk takers, as well as muted colours the likes of camel, black and white for those in quest for statement classics.

In that respect, the Virtus bags at once embody both the ancient and the contemporary, all the while attesting the grandeur that is talismanic to the house of Versace.

The Versace Virtus handbags are available in stores, prices upon request.
