A classic handbag, one that looks just as good at the office as it does on the dance floor, is as timeless as a well-cut pair of trousers. You don’t need many and you’ll know it when you see it. Maybe it’s visions of seeing yourself striding across the floor between board meetings with the bag in-hand or smoothly slipping off the stool to shimmy along A Night To Remember while onlookers gaze admiringly that signal this is the piece for you.
As we await Givenchy SS20’s runway debut in the midst of a buzzing Paris Fashion week, we’ve got our eyes on the house’s sleek, new statement bag. The Eden, crafted of smooth calfskin leather (and a whole range of other fine textiles), is a geometric feat with beveled edges and contrasting top-stitching that echoes the French maison’s couture necklines with its signature V-shape. Finished with an adjustable shoulder strap and satin-finish gold Givenchy logo clasp, the bag is fashioned in a range of rich hues, from a jewelled teal to emerald green. It’s the piece that carries all your necessities while sitting snuggly underarm, getting you through the day with a graceful ease that is often imitated, but seldom duplicated.
The Eden was first presented on the runway for AW19 and as a testament to luxury fashion’s move to push for investment pieces over quick thrills it proves it can still to be the centre of attention. The statement bag isn’t bound to seasons – you’ll wear it today, tomorrow, and years down the road. Because, as Givenchy has proven since 1952, craftsmanship and an unwavering taste never goes out of style. It’s simply timeless.
The Givenchy Eden bag is available for purchase online and in selected stores.
