If you have been patiently waiting for Versace’s Virtus ever since you spotted it over at the Italian luxury brand’s Fall-Winter 2019 runway show in February 2019, the good news is that the bag (or rather, bags) has officially launched in Versace boutiques over at Marina Bay Sands and Paragon Shopping Centre. Named after the Roman deity of courage and strength, the Virtus is identified by a metallic V hardware embellished with acanthus leaves, an iconic detailing that pays homage to the Versace’s Barocco print that was first introduced back in the early ’90s.
Now, the amazing thing about the Virtus lies in the fact that it comes in an entire handbag line that consists of numerous size and style variations. That includes everything from contemporary belt bags (worn casually around the hip) to evening silhouettes armed with a slinky chain strap, as well as the bigger shoulder bags and top handle totes which are perfect for the everyday.
The bags predominantly come in a smooth leather exterior, with several designs in quilted patterns or checkered tweed. But if you’re all for something truly unique, keep an eye out for the models in shiny jacquard that come embroidered with a metallic V motif.
The other plus point about the Virtus? There are plenty of colours for you to choose from, from the bright and bold (think along the lines of Coral Red, Fuchsia and Turquoise) to classic neutrals in Black, Camel and White that will pair easily with almost any outfit. Excited? Just head on down to a Versace boutique and get up close and personal with them.
