TRAVEL FRAME: Italian leather goods company Bric’s has teamed up with Francesca Versace to launch “FV_Bags,” a line of colorful bags and travel cases hitting the company’s flagship stores and selected specialty shops in February.
The accessories line, which Santo Versace’s daughter designed for Bric’s, features three different patterns. Graphic “Fashion Frames” mixes frames and baroque swirls, appearing on shopping bags, carries-on, travel bags, iPad cases and beauty cases; “Fleck Pop” revisits Action Painting’s graphics for cotton bags trimmed with leather, while “Skyflower” shows the stylized silhouettes of international cities’ skylines framed with flowers.
“I’m very happy because I had the chance to start from my real passion, travelling,” said the designer, who is a Central Saint Martins graduate. “I focused on frames because when I’m back from a trip I like to put my pictures into a frame in order to save the most beautiful moments.”
