We mentioned earlier this week that structured, long-strap flap bags are the hottest thing going in handbags right now, and Givenchy may have our favorite of the new crop. The first version of it to hit the Internet was immediately crowned our Bag of the Week, and now several more materials, colors and sizes have arrived.

In spite of our best efforts, we’re still not entirely sure what this bag is called, and maybe neither is Givenchy. The brand gives model names to all its handbags, and especially to new launches likely to garner consumer attention, but the brand’s Fall-Winter 2015 lookbook simple refers to this as a “flap bag.” Bergdorf Goodman called it the New Line Flap Bag when it first hit the brand’s site, and that’s what MATCHESFASHION.COM is called the two it currently carries, but now Bergdorf Goodman has changed the product name to the Bow-Cut Flap Bag, which is what Saks is also calling it. Long story short: whatever Givenchy eventually decrees we should call this bag, it’s really nice-looking.

Structured, mid-size flap bags almost always recall Chanel in some way, but this bag takes the structure and makes it all Givenchy’s. The look is angular and modern, with little of the ladylike nostalgia that usually characterizes the particular shape.

The regular size of the bag, which is a little over 10 inches wide, has a strap drop that’s adjustable up to 15 inches, which means it will hit near a woman’s natural waist; a small wallet-on-a-chain version has a longer strap that allows for crossbody wear. For the regular size, the strap appears to be detachable through a buckle and loops under the bag’s top flap, allowing the carrier to use it as a clutch.

I love the way Givenchy has designed the bag. I think there is the perfect compromise between the usefulness of the width of the bag but not too wide that it will be a nuciance by protruding out so far it is in your way. I really like this bag…

Here is something extremely interesting that is worth to pay attention , a superb opportunity for work for those who want to utilise their free time to make some extra money using their computers… I have been working on this for last two and half years and I am earning 50-80 dollar/ hour … In the past week I have earned 13,245 dollars for almost 20 hours sitting ….

Any special kind of skills or qualification is not required for this, just normal typing and a reliable internet connection ….

Time limitations are not here to start work … You may work on this any time when you get some time ….

Check it out how I’ve been doing this….view WebsiteIink on my` profile` to know how I use to work on this`

I love it but the leopard print is freaking me out for some reason 😛

I think the leopard skin pattern is relected down the middle like a ink blot/Rorshach test. It makes the pattern look subtly unnatural or uncanny (and rather moth-like, tbh).

I like the versions in photos 3 and 4. In the former, I like the velvet touch, in the latter, the accent stitching. Will try to check the bags out in person next week. Thanks for spotlighting these!

Slides 2/3/9 are really beautiful, by those with the Leo print are terrible, they’re look like very tacky pieces. Love the structure and the beautiful very luxurious leathers

I have to give them credit for a unique take on the flap bag BUT, I still don’t like it at all. Honestly, it looks like something a person would buy from etsy.
