Gianni Versace Couture Pochette Canova Print and gold, 1990s
A pochette inspired by Greek architecture and art, Versace translates these features into prints for its pantheon of fashion items. Made of silk velvet, this clutch bag features a striking red-orange colour with balances of beige and black. Two images appear on the main part of the bag in a style reminiscent of goddesses dancing in the black emptiness of a putto. Along the lower edge, a repeating geometric pattern runs as if it were the frieze of an ancient temple. The handle and the opening is characterised by a golden knob. Undoubtedly this Versace bag is a unique collector's piece that beautifully incorporates the art in this square design bag. Versace is not just a brand, but a design style. The Versace vision is one of excess, paying homage to the colours and motifs of classical times.
