Italian luxury house VERSACE unveiled their Fall Winter 2021 Virtus Handbag Collection with a campaign starring supermodel Bella Hadid lensed by fashion photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. In charge of styling was Jacob K, with creative direction from Ferdinando Verderi, and casting direction by Piergiorgio Del Moro and Samuel Ellis Scheinman. Beauty is work of hair stylist Paul Hanlon, makeup artist Lisa Eldridge, and manicurist Simone Marino. The collection is a symbol of the brand’s heritage, and it explores courage, strength and virtue.
“The central gold-tone Barocco V characterizes the bag. The Virtus comes in many variations: as a tote, top handle, belt, shoulder or evening bag. Crafted in Italy from supple calf leather, the Virtus is declined in a variety of colors and finishes.” – from Versace
