Versace Handbags & Purses

Gianni Versace, the designer who rejuvenated the industry by tapping the energy of popular culture and bringing personality, rock, art, flirtation and brilliant color into contemporary style, died tragically in 1997. But his sister, Donatella, took over the mantel of the house after his untimely death, and she never looked back.

For fans of the Italian brand, Versace's accessories pack just as much punch as their clothes. And the firm has in recent years ramped up its focus on accessories at a time when handbags reign supreme in the fashion world.

Versace handbags and purses span the axis of style, ranging from the sharp New Icon Quilted Handbag with a chain detail and fold-over flap to versatile pieces like the Sophie Quilted Satchel, which easily transitions from day to evening. Then there are practical, roomy totes from the Versus label, the elegant Lady Bags of the Greek Collection, vintage clutch purses that date to the brand's early days, and tidy zip wallets to keep everything closely at hand. Lovers of all bags Versace will find a fair share of offerings at auction.
