The iconic Medusa head has grown to become a signature icon at Versace, appearing everywhere from belt buckles to costume jewellery and even the extensive Versace Home collection known for its opulent over-the-top prints.
Most recently, it has found its way onto the handbags and SLGs, doubling up as a prominent logo on the La Medusa range of bags.
One of the key styles for the season includes the La Medusa Shoulder Bag, a boxy design meant to be worn as a casual crossbody via the adjustable shoulder strap.
Each bag comes in at 17 cm by 14.5 cm, and Versace has made sure that it’s equally big on function, with three roomy pockets arranged in an accordion-like format.
Two of them are left ‘open’ to keep your items within view, while the third compartment has a zip closure which is always great for more sensitive items like your wallet, card case or keys.
Priced at SGD2220 each, the La Medusa Shoulder Bag is available in colours like Black, Lilac and Pink at Versace boutiques in Singapore. Do note that the one in black is the only one that comes with the gold-finished Medusa plaque, while the others feature a tone-on-tone matte finish for a discreet look.
What’s more, the bag is crafted in full leather on the inside and out, which truly isn’t so bad especially if you are fan of all things Medusa-themed from Versace.
