IT’S ALL GREEK TO ME

THE VER­SACE POP Magna Gre­cia Palazzo Em­pire bag – say it three times fast. This is a big bag, with a big name, that needs a big in­tro­duc­tion. His­tory has shown that good things can come from odd pair­ings – like that of Andy Warhol and com­mu­nism – so why not a bom­bas­tic, limitededition purse where pop art and the Greece of clas­si­cal an­tiq­uity are smashed to­gether? We’re in a world where more is more, so push those clas­sic black holdalls to the back of the closet and em­brace this new ex­trav­a­gant maxi life. This pop ver­sion of the Palazzo bag comes in three colour­ways, each louder than the next, and puts the Magna (mean­ing “great”) in Gre­cia (mean­ing “Greece”). There’s ev­ery­body’s (and Ver­sace’s) favourite myth­i­cal lady, Me­dusa, along­side Greek vases and stat­ues from Gianni Ver­sace’s palazzo that lend clas­si­cal el­e­ments to this oth­er­wise pop-art fan­tasy. Donatella didn’t hes­i­tate when she gave the Palazzo bag a con­tem­po­rary makeover, with an­cient icons. It’s a brand-new face and a never-be­fore-seen per­son­al­ity. This is not a bag for the faint-hearted, but when were lovers of fash­ion ever timid?
