For this fall season, Givenchy has launched a new series of versatile men’s hybrid bags. Such bags have entered the spotlight recently now that men are looking for alternatives to the classic briefcase, and Givenchy delivers new models that effortlessly transform from backpacks into duffel bags with the use of stylish zippered handles. The collection ($2,095 to $3,850) comprises a medium-sized nylon edition with a khaki exterior and a contrasting orange interior, as well as two larger styles: a sporty nylon one with colored stitching that mimics the lines of a basketball court, and a more refined version in sleek white leather that features a zippered black lining and a multicolored U.S. flag patch.
In contrast to the casual bags, Givenchy’s creative director, Riccardo Tisci, has produced Givenchy’s first ever tuxedo capsule collection. It contains three looks, including a double-buttoned lapel jacket with a geometric shawl collar and satin-stripe trousers ($3,737), styled fittingly with the season’s new black leather loafers ($1,150).
