Accessory of the day: Versace’s AW19 Virtus bags

In usual Donatella Versace fashion, the Versace AW19 collection stayed true to the house codes—sultry and sexy, peppered with a healthy dose of look-at-me accessories. Inspired by the grunge spirit from the ’90s, the clothes took on an unbelievably lurid route, yet well-executed in every way. The ironic but welcoming twist came from the new bag line, Virtus, that juxtaposed wonderfully with the collection’s grunged out aesthetic.

Characterised by a central Barocco V motif, the Virtus came in a variety of silhouettes—from fanny packs and top handle bags with V-pattern quilting to the crossbody model in various sizes, some colour-blocked in neon hues and Baroque-inspired materials. We won’t be surprised if the Virtus takes over next season as the new everyday bag, evident from the impeccable styling on the runway. Whether you need a desk-to-drinks arm accessory or a waist-slinging statement-maker for your weekend #ootd, this one’s perfect for all seasons and occasions.
