Let us introduce you to the first handbag collection by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy.
Artistic director has created a selection of practical and chic bags that carry the initials G V 3 as a tribute to the the house’s historic address on the 3 Avenue George V in Paris. The accessories look polished, yet the design reflects vintage sensibility delivering a timeless look.
In keeping with her vision of the Givenchy spirit, Waight Keller manages to deliver pieces that not only look good, but are also functional. The three-compartment accordion structure of the G V 3 maximize capacity while minimizing volume – ideal for every day.
Smooth, shiny flat-grained leather mixes with the tactile softness of suede, their colours deepened with a hand-dabbed “Tamponato” finish. Sleek kid goat leather and lambskin are heat-treated separately to display their unique grains while exotic leathers, such as cat snake or black and white modern pythons, are individually dyed and hand-painted to bring out each bag’s individual attitude.
Chain straps nod simultaneously to the men’s traditional pocket watch chain and to women’s jewelry. Our top pick? The belt bags that we spotted during Waight Keller’s début for Givenchy.
Available in selected Givenchy stores across the Middle East from March 2018.
