As we all know, I’m the first one to criticize Versace when they screw up a handbag, so I feel like it’s only fair that I recognize them early and often when they get something right. And this time, I feel like they have: the Versace Python Frame Satchel is sleek and restrained, but it still has the signature sexiness of a Versace design.
It actually strikes me as a bit more of a briefcase than a handbag, which I mean in the best way possible. This is the sort of bag to carry your work files if you work in the most stylish of offices (and receive the highest of salaries).
Something that Versace always does nicely is use metal accents in ways that other designers sometimes neglect. The corner covers on this satchel are key for me and increase the functional feel of the overall design. Of course, the luxurious, glossy-finish python balances them nicely – no one would ever mistake this for your average work bag. Far from it. Buy through Saks for $3325.
