As part of its Pre-Fall 2019 collection, Givenchy has unveiled a new handbag which was inspired by Artistic Director Clare Waight Keller’s Haute Couture silhouettes and simultaneously suggests power and restraint while combining sophistication and softness.
The Mystic is a slightly structured top handle bag with a V-shaped flap and a tab closure. According to the brand, the name of the bag is an ode to the half-hidden lock, which when closed aligns to form a double-G, and when open revels the metal logo plate.
Handcrafted from fine calf leather and contrasting suede, the bag is versatile enough to accompany a variety of looks and is fitted with a removable, adjustable strap so it can be worn in a variety of ways, from hand-carry to cross-body. There’s also a practical back flat pocket to keep your essentials close to hand.
From hand-made topstitching and hand-painted edging to a handle which features a hand-applied bombé cushion that ensures comfort and, with wear, takes on an individual patina, the Mystic truly showcases the high level of craftsmanship Givenchy is known for.
Available in five colours (black, storm grey, natural, desert and pale yellow), the Mystic comes in small (SGD3,990) and medium (SGD4,990) and will be available at Givenchy Paragon Store (#01-41 & 42 Paragon, 290 Orchard Road) from April 30.
