The new Versace handbag line, Virtus, debuted on the Fall-Winter 2019 runway. Taking its name from the Roman deity, Virtus symbolizes strength, courage, and character. A bold symbol of the brand’s aesthetic heritage, the central gold-tone metal Barocco letter V characterizes the bag.
The Virtus bag comes in many variations: as a tote, top handle, belt, shoulder or evening bag. Crafted from supple calf leather, the Virtus is declined in a variety of colors and finishes. In the Fall-Winter 2019 collection, the Virtus line is available in an array of bright, bold colors such as turquoise, fuchsia, coral red as well as more toned-down hues like camel, black and white. The leather workmanship ranges from smooth to quilting with a V-letter pattern. The bags feature magnetic flap over closure and some models feature shiny jacquard inserts with the V-letter motif embroidered in metallic thread.
The Virtus bag line is available from September 2019.
