Givenchy is at an inflection point right now, and I think the brand knows it. For a couple years, the brand could do no wrong–it had legions of adoring celebrity fans who were wearing its clothes and carrying its bags at every turn, often in front of paparazzi cameras. Riccardo Tisci was among the very first high-end designers to understand how to take his collection in the emerging streetwear direction, and his foresight paid dividends. There always has to be a next thing in fashion, though, and right now, Givenchy is trying to figure out what that will be.

For Spring-Summer 2017 bags, that translates into a slightly uneven mixture of familiar bags in new color combinations–some of which flatly do not work–and new, oddly shaped bags that I’m guessing are destined to be seasonal curiosities. The new solid-color versions of bags like the Horizon and Antigona are good, though, and the logo strap that appears on a couple designs is a solid nod to how luxury streetwear has progressed since Givenchy first aced it.

Take a look at the full lookbook below; personally, I’m already looking ahead toward Givenchy’s Pre-Fall 2017 bags, which find themselves on a more solid footing.

I love the pink antigona in picture 8! It looks more baby pink than the nude pink color they’ve been selling recently. Now I just need to save up so I can afford to buy one lol

I’m just so over Givenchy. Looks like they’re partially trying to channel The Row and partially Celine.

I still love Givenchy but agree they are under pressure to find some fresh ideas that are beautiful and useful. I think the Antigona is a keeper, and will be a classic but not so sure about the Nightingale and Pandora. The Horizon has never had my attention…the other new bags below, just no. Hoping Givenchy gets a fresh perspective soon!

The Nightingale will never go out of style, they just need to stick with nice leathers and colors, no embellishment. The style in #22 is not bad, but I would have too see it in a solid color to be sure.

I love the Horizon but not enough to buy it.

They see the “Horizon”, I see the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour in a Straitjacket… with the clochette and lock removed, to avoid self-harm. It is soooooo ugly. Truly. I find Givenchy bags uninspired and dull.
