Versace celebrates the season with this Starfish shoulder bag.
This is a very different purse for Versace. I'm used to its cutting edge designs which ooze contemporary cool. This handbag shows the label's sillier side though. A large starfish dominates the purse's semi-circle shaped front, and there are many smaller images of the sea creature printed behind it. It's far from the refinement we're used to from the label, but sometimes fashion should just be about having fun!
The starfish won't be everyone's favorite design detail, but personally I prefer it to Versace's ostentatious chain strap. The label's cleverly incorporated its logo into the handle, but I think it looks a bit gaudy. If, like me, you think it makes an already busy purse seem too fussy you'll happily note it's removable. The purse isn't quite as practical without it, but it appears much smarter.
It might look less sophisticated than Versace's usual offerings, but that doesn't mean the label's skimped. It's well crafted from high quality Italian lambskin, which feels sumptuously soft underneath our fingers.
If you're tempted it's worth noting its dimensions. This Starfish purse is so small that it'll barely hold the essentials. No one wants a large starfish emblazoned handbag hanging from their arm, but a few extra inches would have made all the difference.
Versace bags always cost a packet, so I'm not surprised to see this one clocking in at $1720. That doesn't mean I'm not disappointed though. That's far too much to spend on a purse that will look out of place once winter hits.
