FAVOURED BY ROYALTY AND SOCIETY TYPES, THE CLASSIC VARIATION SAYS “I’M A LADY”. ADAPTED TO BE SOFTER AND MORE PRACTICAL,THE LATEST OPTIONS SAY THE SAME SANS THE HIGH SES STUFFINESS. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT GIVENCHY’S MYSTIC.
In stores April 30, Givenchy’s Mystic is the independent working woman’s answer to a traditional framed top-handle bag. Fine calf leather lends lightness, suppleness and, in turn, practicality to its boxy structure, while its elegant V-shaped flap keeps contents hidden even when the bag’s carried unclasped. A removable strap means it can also be used cross-body style.
The soft sculpted lines of the Mystic – available in small or medium – draw from Givenchy creative director Clare Waight Keller’s modern haute couture silhouettes. The bag’s make is equally sophisticated: the topstitching is hand done, the handle is made of three layers of suede and calf leather (with the edges hand-painted), and the inside is fully lined in suede.
