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.

Amanda Seyfried Givenchy Floral Nightingale Bag

Amanda Seyfried was recently caught by the paps in the midst of a major “STARS: they’re just like us!” moment: grocery shopping at a Trader Joe’s in West Hollywood! Amanda looks refreshingly low-key here, with her tousled locks and athletic sweats.

Hilary Duff Givenchy Antigona Celine Luggage Tote

Here’s Hilary Duff, leaving the gym in West Hollywood (in a pair of heels, no less!), clearly showered, blow-dried and ready to take on her post-workout day. She’s carrying both a Celine Luggage Tote and a Givenchy Antigona Bag – one bag for pre-gym, one bag for post-gym, I suppose?

Givenchy Easy Tote

Finding a premium designer bag under $1,000 isn’t as easy as it used to be even a few years ago. Not only are leather and labor prices ever on the increase, but designers keep prices high in order to keep an air of exclusivity around their products and prevent lower-market customers from snagging their most recognizable (and bankable) goods.

Kendall and Kyle Jenner Givenchy Lucrezia Bag Louis Vuitton Pegase Suitcases

Here are the wee Jenner sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, trying to keep it low key (but failing miserably), shortly after touching down at JFK in NYC. Kendall is heading up the front, carrying a sexy black Givenchy Lucrezia Bag, and both sisters are pulling Louis Vuitton Pegase Suitcases.

Givenchy Summer 2014 Bags 20

Like Celine, Givenchy names its seasonal collection a little bit differently than most. Givenchy Summer 2014 is actually the main cluster of bags that the French brand will be releasing for the season, and if you’re a little tired of that omnipresent Givenchy floral (although I’m not), you’ll be glad to find that this line is full of earth-toned neutrals, plus a little bit of red and pink.

Givenchy LC 24H Bag

Although menswear’s reach is expanding rapidly, I rarely find myself wishing I could hop to the other side of the gender aisle to experiment; women’s fashion is just a lot more fun. The Givenchy L.C. 24H Bag is the rare piece that makes its women’s equivalent, the Givenchy Lucrezia Bag, look bad by comparison.

Rooney Mara Givenchy Nightingale Bag

We’re not exactly surprised to see Givenchy’s celeb sweetheart Rooney Mara carrying Givenchy. Rooney wears tons of the brand’s clothes on the red carpet and is undoubtedly one of the brand’s favorite stars, so it makes sense that we’d catch her dashing out of a dance class in LA with a black Givenchy Nightingale Bag.

Jessica Simpson carries a leopard Givenchy bag in NYC (5)

Jessica Simpson was recently spotted out and about in NYC, carrying a Givenchy Leopard Antigona Bag, which seems extremely Jessica Simpson-appropriate. In case you’ve never noticed, Jessica has a jaw-droppingly good bag collection, which you can peep in “The Many Bags of Jessica Simpson.” Jessica’s exotic print Givenchy Antigona can currently be snatched up for $2,707 at FarFetch.

Jennifer Garner carries a Givenchy bag in LA (5)

Jennifer Garner was recently seen shopping at Kidville in LA with her adorable son Samuel Affleck (who is startlingly blond, for a kid with two very brunette parents). She’s carrying a Givenchy Antigona Bag with a lizard-embossed finish that is loaded up with kiddie stuff to the point of losing its signature shape.
