Picking up on Artistic Director Clare Waight Keller’s much-noted “Bow” backpack — first presented on the runway at the Givenchy Spring-Summer 2019 Haute Couture show — this range of city- and travel bags revisits the designer’s original concept with a more masculine slant.
Featuring five styles of bag in black or white nylon embellished with contrasting leather details, the “Givenchy Downtown” collection includes a versatile backpack, an ample small duffle, a practical belt bag and a cross-body bag in two shapes, cylindrical and rectangular. Each style subtly reprises the iconic ‘V’ detail seen on Clare Waight Keller’s silhouettes for men and women and bears the Givenchy Heritage label, underscored with one of Hubert de Givenchy’s favorite signatures, a sweeping red pencil stroke.
The “Givenchy Downtown” capsule collection is now available in selected stores only and will be available worldwide starting in October 2019.
Prices: from 690 euros for the belt bag to 1,490 euros for the small duffle.
