Combining classic touches with modern elements in a remarkable collection seems to be the main concept the Versace fashion house went for this season. Staying away from the conventional animal and floral prints that have dominated most collections, the Versace brand challenges us to shift our perspective and to try something just a little different, but just as exciting. Get summer ready with these cute handbags.

If you are looking for a stylish accessory to perk up your style, a designer handbag is something that you can hardly go wrong with. Opting for classy pieces with a modern twist can be an optimal solution if you want to stay on top of the latest fashion trends.

The Versace brand has truly focused on elegance and refinement for the handbag collection for the spring summer 2011 season. Keeping things fairly simple and going on a different direction from what other fashion brands have chosen proves to be a wonderful idea, as we can notice from single glance at the collection.

Well defined shapes, an obvious theme and precise color injections are the main aspects that can be noticed about the pieces included in the latest Versace collection. Although several differences can be spotted in the color palette and the complexity of the pattern, the Greek culture inspiration source remains fairly obvious in each and every design. The precise patterns and the great concern for symmetry are just a few elements that add uniqueness to the collection. From minimalistic touches to funkier, more modern designs, the collection satisfies a wide range of tastes and preferences.

Although vibrant, the colors seem to belong to a very restricted palette. Red, blue, gray, yellow, beige and white seem to be the preferred options. These colors are skillfully combined in order to create just the right amount of contrast to keep things interesting. Whether you need a pop of color to your outfits or you are simply looking for something practical yet stylish, the options are quite numerous.

Aside from the popular pattern that can be spotted throughout the collection, it is also important to notice the additional details that make the handbags presented so lust worthy. Rhinestones and tassels are two surprising style elements that can be observed. While the rhinestones add a modern touch to the handbags by increasing the glam quotient, the tassels indicate a rather bohemian touch and a slightly more romantic attitude.

Appealing to women who appreciate classic elegance by selecting an elegant handbag shape, adding a few funky pop art vintage vibes and selecting an outstanding color palette that attracts attention without being overly conspicuous, the luxury brand cleverly incorporates the symbols by which it is easily recognized into a series of designs that are much more complex than they might appear at a first glance. The use of leather as the main fabric highlights the status of the beloved brand once again, for the ultimate style statement.
