Givenchy Launch New Summer Essential Whip Handbag

The chic new bag design for SS19 is available in a range of shades to suit any style.

 

A new season surely means a new excuse to shop. And as summer edges nearer, we’re looking to revamp our accessories as well as our wardrobes.

 

Our latest handbag obsession comes from Givenchy. Just in time for the new season, the French fashion house has launched the Whip bag, named so after the heritage art of whip-making.

The bag was first debuted on the runway for Givenchy’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection and is now available for purchase.

 

Tapping into Creative Director’s military trend within the collection at large – from army trousers to khaki hues – the new bag aimed to act as a shield to the wearer. It sits close to the body, playing into the notion of how comforted women can feel holding the accessory – which likewise holds their prized possessions– so close to them. To be void of the accessory is often to feel lost.

The graphic-shape bag is comprised of both leather and snakeskin. These luxurious fabrics are brought together with details such as metallic rings and a hand-knotted leather tassel. The leather knotted and braided strap is reminiscent of a whip, too.

 

The design is available in seven shades, such as pale coral and pistachio, and is also available in three sizes.

 

While we’re getting ready to finally don the SS19 collection by Clare Waight Keller, we’ve already begun to think about our favourite items from Givenchy’s Autumn/Winter line.

Taking to the runway in Paris, the new collection was themed the ‘Winter of Eden.’ The aim was to reconcile geometries with an innate softness; a more seductive side to the brand.

 

Givenchy made its own mark on the AW19 trends with a collection of winter-ready florals. Delicate florals designs played out on ruched plissé fabrics with a silky finished. With high-neck ruffles and pleats down the ankle, the overall look was modest yet chic.
