There’s been a lot of shake ups in the handbag world over the last year, and one of the ones that I personally felt the most was Clare Waight Keller’s exit from Chloé. I adored Waight Keller’s work while at Chloé—she churned out big bag hits for the brand such as the Drew and Faye Bags. Though I was saddened to see her go, I was intrigued when she was appointed creative director at Givenchy. Truth be told I was underwhelmed by her first design for the brand, but today I’ve got a treat for you all and I think you’ll agree when I say Givenchy’s newest bag might be Waight Keller’s next big hit.
Brand new for Pre-Fall 2019, the Givenchy Mystic Bag is a slightly structured, top handle bag with a flap top, and a tab closure with a snap. According to the brand’s official instagram, 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. Currently it’s shown in solid colors, in what appears to be smooth leathers without a grain. It looks like there’s both a small and a large version of the Mystic Bag. The bag features a top handle strap, and while most top handle bags these days are released with a removable longer strap option, this bag doesn’t appear to have one. See more below.
