Givenchy Fall 2014 Handbags 7

By now, we’re all used to Givenchy’s handbag MO: a solid stable of distinctive, fan-favorite shapes, made over for each season with a few tweaked details and one or two hyper-distinctive prints. In the recent past, it’s been gonzo florals, cartoon deer and the Virgin Mary, but for Givenchy Fall 2014, creative director Riccardo Tisci is taking a largely stripped-down approach to his brand’s accessories.

We can account for part of the shift as a result of this collection being, technically pre-fall; Givenchy refers to its big cold-weather collection as winter. Pre-fall collections are generally less directional and primarily consist of staple pieces that can bear a long shelf life, which means that there are likely still a few Givenchy accessory flourishes left to come before the year is over. It’s worth noting, though, that the brand’s Winter 2014 show was hugely ladylike, contrary to some of Givenchy’s recent streetwear leanings, and perhaps these bags are indicative of that evolution.

    I am such a fan of the Antigona, Lucrezia, Pandora, and Nightingale. The purple suede Antigona is amazing. I cannot say that any of the other styles are that appealing to me, although the black leather square bag, slouchy, with a shoulder strap is interesting.

      I just saw the new Obsedia bag (in a lovely neutral cream ) and I fell in love instantly. You’re the Givenchy girl, what do you think? I am sorry I did not get the Antigona, by now I have seen it on far too many people.

    dang, that brown wristlet is surprisingly covetable.

    Amazing things would have happened if Alexander Wang had gone to work for Givenchy instead Balenciaga. His aesthetic is far more aligned with Givenchy’s look

    I like this new shape!! Givenchy being my ultimate favourite when it comes to bags, it should be on my shopping list shortly!!
    No no no no…Ricardo Tisci is doing a fine job at Givenchy, leave him there :))

    I wish they would replace the HDG with just givenchy. I like the look of the shape but HDG keeps putting me off it…

  • Jesica

    Givenchy is my number one for handbags overall right now… everything is so lovely & unique but understated. What is the style called that has the top handle & zipper flap closure? So dreamy!

  • Alicia Lee

    How very utilitarian, dull

  • MrMotivations

    Hardware on the wristlet looks my spike collar. Scary. (Woof!)

  • Marth

    Very uninspiring. I do not like the re-design of the Pandora, which eliminated the interesting slouchy felxibility of the bag.
