If you're sick of prints, pricy exotics and weird embellishments and instead just want a nice leather bag you can carry in a lot of situations and seasons, let me point your attention toward Givenchy's Summer 2016 bags. The brand got back to basics with this lineup; in it, you'll find the Antigona, Nightingale, Pandora and Bow-Cut in hues of black, brown, navy and blush, as well as a couple denim bags and some light studding here and there. The look is decidedly wearer-friendly.
There are a couple featured bags with contrast broguing and stripes, but the majority of the styles are light on embellishment, which makes this season an ideal time to pick up one of these bags if you're looking for longevity. There are also a bunch of very functional clutches in the group--mostly little flap bags on chains instead of the less user-friendly minaudieres some brands love to make.
Take a look at the brand's full handbag lookbook below; many of the styles are already available for pre-order or purchase at Neiman Marcus, Saks or Nordstrom if you see something that tickles your fancy.
