The fashion label Versace was established by Gianni Versace in 1978 in Via Della Spiga, Milan. Versace is well known for its edgy and sophisticated designs in luxury clothing and accessories. The brand has also expanded into creating fashionable luxury items such as home furnishings, makeup, and fragrances.
The founder, Gianni Versace was tragically killed by Andrew Cunanan on July 15, 1997. Gianni Versace’s sister, Donatella Versace took over as creative director while older brother Santo Versace became CEO. As stipulated in Gianni Versace’s last will, his niece Allegra Versace (Donatella’s daughter), owned 50% of the company starting 2004. Despite the tragic death of its original founder, Versace continued to flourish and develop as one of the fashion world’s most sought after labels.
The Versace 1969 handbags for the spring summer collection continues the fashion legacy of the fashion label. Each design is a definite fashion statement, bringing the wearer a taste of sophistication, elegance, and luxury. The Versace Block Color Python bag is a bold and eye-catching piece with its pastel colored python leather offset by tan leather. The sides are embellished with metal studs and a chain link strap.
Some Versace handbags in the collection have more subdued and classic design. One sophisticated piece is a white patent leather handbag.

Another Versace handbag piece worth mentioning from the collection is a sophisticated gold fabric clutch. It has an adjustable should strap, snap closure, flap front stamped with the Versace logo, gold metal rings and hardware and internal zip pocket. These pieces will certainly make anyone feel like a million dollars.
