Givenchy presented its spring 2023 runway earlier this month during Paris Fashion Week, and the collection itself was ultra-feminine with pops of grunge. Drapey fabrics and silk dresses were juxtaposed with oversized denim and cargo pants.

Designer Matthew Williams has found his groove with this collection, which was a little bit haute couture and a little bit streetwear, which makes sense given William’s background in streetwear. Somehow the whole thing just worked.

Givenchy’s Got a Brand New Bag

As for the bags, there were some carry-over styles and bags that were less commercial, but the true standout was a brand-new shoulder bag shown in multiple sizes and colors. At first glance, the bag feels like a hit. Relatively simple in shape, the roomy shoulder bag is crafted from soft, smooshy leather featuring moto-style leather straps and buckles adorning the bag’s corners.

Givenchy Spring Summer 2023

The bag signifies a new direction for Givenchy’s leather goods, moving beyond the oversized, chunky hardware that Williams became known for when he joined the House.

I like the look of this bag overall and think it will resonate as it’s very consumer friendly. And while I feel excited about this new direction, at the same time, I can’t stop making comparisons to the Balenciaga City Bag.

Do you see it too?

I don’t see the Balenciaga connection. It’s a nice bag though and can actually be practical.

Not a fan of these-they don’t look like a high end bag to me…something is missing. Maybe it’s the basic strap?? Needs something more substantial.

Can’t make everyone happy. It’s either too basic or too much lol

I have never been a fan of the modern version of Givenchy… and this bag won’t change that. Doesn’t look luxe at all.

You’ll probably be able to get it for 75% off on eBay a year from now.

I like it! It looks more put together then the Chanel 22, for example.
