Fresh from the success of the HM + Versace collection that pretty much sold out the world over comes this shoulder bag from Donatella’s own line (just so we’re clear, in case anyone out there thinks this is another collaboration piece). Part of her S/S12 collection (which also means it will be released next year), there is something about this particular piece that I still can’t quite put my finger on.
It’s not ugly, per se, but somehow I’m not feeling it much either. The shape is pretty, the half-moon body topped on with a single handle. The tassel is interesting, but the more I look at it, the more it reminds me of a Chinese lantern. I guess the only real issue I’m having with this bag is perhaps the print, which is much too The Little Mermaid for my liking, if you catch my drift.
In other words, it will probably do much better in a solid colour sans print, while still keeping the medallion as well as the tassel, though honestly if that happened, it wouldn’t be very Versace in the first place, would it?
What do you think?
