Arguably one of the most popular Givenchy handbags of all time and one of the most beloved handbags of the 2010s, the Givenchy Pandora hit the scene for Fall/Winter 2009. Designed by Riccardo Tisci, the Pandora quickly became synonymous with the House of Givenchy. Inspired by Pandora’s Box of Greek Mythology, the bag is defined by its boxy (though not super structured) shape and slanted dual zip top. It has a singular top handle strap and a longer strap for shoulder or cross-body wear, making it a staple everyday bag for It-girls on the go.
As to be expected, over the years, the Givenchy Pandora has become a beloved bag for many celebs, a go-to that we’ve often seen stars carrying over and over again. Not to mention, handbag fans have also fallen hard for the Pandora bag. Even though its creator has long since moved on from the House, once replaced by Clare Waight Keller of Chloé, and most recently Matthew Williams, the Givenchy Pandora is still being produced nearly 15 years later.
Should It Stay or Should It Go
Certain bags instantaneously hit that “I’ve got to have this” moment, and the Pandora bag was definitely riding that wave in its heyday during the 2010s. When this bag became popular, it seemed as though everyone wanted to get their hands on one — it was the bag everyone had to have. While the Pandora helped to define a specific period in handbag history, its casual-luxe feel helped the Pandora reach international appeal. While it’s definitely not the bag for everyone, it has and likely will continue to remain part of the Givenchy line-up. Beloved for its versatility in carrying options and roomy interior, it’s quite a feat that the Pandora has remained in production despite the changing trends in silhouettes and size over the years, which is notable.
