When the Givenchy Nightingale got a smooth redesign for Pre-Fall 2015, I was hooked. I love a good satchel with an optional shoulder strap and just the right amount of slouch, and this bag brings both of those elements together nicely.
We mentioned earlier this week that structured, long-strap flap bags are the hottest thing going in handbags right now, and Givenchy may have our favorite of the new crop. The first version of it to hit the Internet was immediately crowned our Bag of the Week, and now several more materials, colors and sizes have arrived.
Liv Tyler and I don’t have much in common. For example, I am not the child of rock star royalty, and I do not live in a gorgeous townhome in the West Village. What we do have in common, though, is that we both wear a lot of black, right down to our sensible New York walking shoes, and we use a bag to add a little visual interest to the whole thing.
Every brand has its clientele, and among celebrities, Givenchy tends to be super popular among super models. The brand’s streetwear-meets-runway approach to fashion fits in well with the dominant “model off duty” look, and the Givenchy’s bags in particular have found a home in the fans of practically every publicly recognizable model on the planet.
