La Medusa handbags lead the Versace Spring Summer 2021 Collection.

She’s unapologetic, fearless and widely desired by anyone that laid eyes on her. History has made her into a piece of ancient art to ward off evil, bringing only good vibes for those who confided in her. In Greek mythology, Medusa was truly an icon back in Athens and even more so now as she continues to live through the ethos of Versace. The Italian fashion house has once again put her in the spotlight for Spring Summer 2021 with the debut of the La Medusa.

La Medusa handbags are adorned with Medusa-head plaque; the same plaque design that’s seen on the doors of Via Gesû 12: Versace’s first headquarters in Milan. It is supreme luxury meets iconic aesthetic; adding the signature Versace stamp to any of your looks. Themed Sea of Colour, bright, bold colours splashes across the collection. One specific blue stands out — Versace describes it as the one that truly defines the line. It’s a perfect shade of blue, fresh, created by Donatella Versace; who is inspired by nature and she designed it to bring happiness to its wearer.

Blue is my favourite colour because for me it represents freedom. When I am in the sea, I feel free. When I’m surrounded by elements of nature and clear blue skies, I feel truly happy and all that is wrong in the world disappears. The world becomes blue.

The handbags in the collection is made out of premium leather. Only the softest leather is chosen to give the bag its slouchy and unstructured finish — a modern and youthful nuance to the line that exudes fun yet iconic. Its relaxed silhouettes breathe life into traditional Italian luxury craftsmanship; coupled with almost the entire spectrum of colours, creating a gender neutral palette. Men or women; can choose to go bold with shades of bright orange, deep red or blue. For the other that prefers to play it ‘safe’, there is soft lilac, white, black and pink to choose from. No matter if you’re #TeamBold or #TeamSubtle, these pieces from La Medusa are still an affirmation of a statement look when worn together with your very own style.

The bags add boldness, an unapologetic attitude to every single look, no matter men or women’s. There are no rules to fashion, style any of these bags to your day or night look; or even from day till dawn. It’s effortless styling that anyone in the universe is able to do, including you. Allow the bag to complement your personal style, no matter if it’s for work or play. At the office, be the boss lady that you know you are with the La Medusa Medium Handbag; which is both practical and contemporary-looking that matches perfectly with a dress or pantsuit.
