Rachel Zoe was recently spotted running errands on her home turf with husband Rodger and son Skyler. Here’s Rachel carrying a black Givenchy Lucrezia Bag with a croc panel while picking up a few items at the Malibu Country Mart. You can find a similar black Lucrezia with a quilted panel for $2,450 at Barneys.
Givenchy Handbags and Purses(Page 3)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
