In case you were afraid that the men’s market was going to miss out on the highly literal novelty accessories that have become so popular among female luxury consumers, I (with help from Givenchy) am here to alleviate your concerns.
Givenchy Handbags and Purses(Page 3)
[Editor’s Note: This week, the PurseBlog staff is out of the office to enjoy the last little bit of summer. We’ll return after Labor Day, but in the meantime, we’ll be running both new posts and a few of our favorites from the past few months to get you ready for fall.]
If you already love Givenchy, we’ve got some great news for you: Givenchy is as Givenchy as ever for Fall-Winter 2014.
Cate Blanchett was recently spotted heading to the theater in Manhattan for her matinee performance of The Maids. She’s carrying both a quilted, burgundy red Roger Vivier Prismick Shoulder Bag, which is a new-for-fall variation on one of the brand’s classic bags, and a taupe Givenchy Lucrezia Satchel.
It wasn’t that long ago that Givenchy was just another luxury brand in LVMH’s significant stable. A few years ago, though, a streetwear sensibility started to leak into Riccardo Tisci’s gothic leanings and couture mastery, and ever since then, the brand’s signature graphic T-shirts, luxe sneakers and, more than anything, iconic handbags have been on the backs, feet and arms of basically every famous person on the planet.
Ever since the Givenchy Antigona hit the scene, it hasn’t stopped running. Of all the Givenchy bags, this one has the most staying power and seems to be the most coveted. I have been diligently trying to figure out which Antigona I want, and I wonder if I should keep it simple and go with a neutral, even black.
Here’s Kourtney Kardashian, shopping in the Meatpacking District in NYC, wearing a rather casual ensemble that seems a little reminiscent of something one might see in a Kardashian boudoir. (I like the idea of wearing silk shorts in broad daylight conceptually, but I’m not sure it’ll ever catch on.) Her bag is an adorable Givenchy Antigona Mini Bag with red trim, which is currently on sale for $1,596 at SSENSE.
Actress Sophia Bush was recently seen leaving lunch at a restaurant in West Hollywood, carrying a Givenchy Antigona Bambi Tote. Givenchy tends to gravitate towards extremes when it comes to prints. They do abstractions of Disney characters, pretty florals and snarling Rottweilers, and they’re all wildly popular.
