It’s been a while since we had a good ol’ fashioned bashing of an insultingly overpriced Versace bag, and as they say, there’s no time like the present. So let’s talk about the Versace Rose-Embellished Jacquard Hobo, shall we?

I know you guys enjoy this as much as I do.


Versace Rose-Embellished Jacquard Hobo

Between the black fabric and the cheap-looking silver-and-black roses that look like they were attached with a safety pin, this bag looks like it was manufactured by Guess or XOXO and is meant to be sold to thirteen-year-olds in the juniors department at Macy’s. And maybe it’s just me, but I think the patent trim at the bottom is really what does it in, juxtaposed with the fabric that makes up the body.

Now, there’s nothing inherently wrong with looking like one of those brands – I remember being thirteen myself and thinking those bags were so awesome – except that this bag is made by a major Italian design house that’s known the world over and intended to be sold to grown women with sizable checking accounts. It simply doesn’t hold up to the standard that we should all have for $1800 bags – oh, didn’t I mention that? That’s how much this bag costs.

Gross, right? Buy through Saks for $1795.

    Uhm… ok.

    If I saw this bag on someone I’d never even think of Versace.
    And textile with patent leather looks terrible (read: cheap).

    Oh, and leave decor with roses to Valentino. :)

    This is why I’ve never been a fan of Versace,see. Bvlgari and Valentino bags are stable – always luxurious and beautiful. And Versace can’t perform steadily.

    Versace is just not a contender in the handbag world. I can not remember the last Versace bag that I liked… good review Amanda!

    If I was a teenager and I wanted this bag I could find a similar one at Target or Khols. This bag is not worth $1800. I rather spend $1800 on a timeless and well constructed Chanel or LV bag. Thanks for the review.

    I have to agree with you about the taste level when it comes to those flowers.
    It doesn’t say chic.

    What a shame.
