The Italian luxury brand has opened its second Hong Kong store -- its first flagship in the city. Located in Harbour City, Kowloon, Versace's new 732-square-meter store is the brand's largest flagship in Asia.

The design concept, which was conceived by Donatella Versace and British architect Jamie Fobert, blends Classical Italian features with modern touches and features Byzantine-style mosaic floors, perspex walls and shelving, and brass decorative stars.

"For me the boutique suggests an uninterrupted dialogue between our past and our future, between me and Jamie Fobert and obviously between Versace and our clients," observed Donatella.

To celebrate those clients, and the launch of the store, Versace has designed two new limited edition versions of the 'Signature' bag in a choice of white or black leather, with only 60 pieces available.
