Riccardo Tisci showed his Spring/Summer 2017 menswear collection for Givenchy in Paris. Travel seems to be in the air during the spring collections, with several designers sending their models on strange journeys to both real and imagined locales. Riccardo Tisci men seemed to be military men on a mission; the collection was heavy with camouflage prints and utility features. Overcharged with busy prints — plus zippers and utility pockets galore — this was no zen statement. “It was more like a trip in a spiritual way,” Tisci said. Givenchy has always been known for their loud and avant garde style when it comes to the runway and their looks for Spring/Summer ’17 are no different. Creative director Ricardo Tisci shows his liking for camouflage patterns and more avant garde cuts on his clothing. It’s a great bridge between streetwear and luxury clothing that will surely be popular come season. Presenting the Givenchy Spring/Summer 2017 Runway Bag Collection. Givenchy presented their latest collection at the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle, with hanging balloon lights and a mirrored metallic runway. Guests were treated with silver mylar wraps to keep warm amidst the cold temperature. Riccardo Tisci has taken inspiration from the spirituality of nature. Models came out in slick and shiny hair wearing psychedelic prints and large geode pendants in chunky chain. The collection brings in a retro vibe featuring flirty and sexy dresses and functional tailored suits. This season’s handbags comes in a variety of styles. Mesh tote which comes with a smaller leather bag was seen on the runway. Mini bags with a circular top handle and large tote bags were also part of the collection. Micro bags worn on the neck makes a chic and modern statement. It was one of the most spectacular settings of Paris Fashion Week; staged in the vast grounds of Paris’s Museum National d’Histoire Naturelle, Riccardo Tisci set up a mirrored square runway, surrounded by ginormous, softly lit balloon lanterns that seemed to float in the dark evening sky. To stay warm in the autumnal air, guests, sat on cube stools, were each clothed in a silver foil mylar wrap that reflected in the runway. The whole set looked like something that had landed from outer space. His guests, an all-star line-up was pretty cosmic too; the “Givenchy Family” included power couple Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik, Courtney Love and daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, Kim Kardashian West wearing a white lace negligee and white silk robe, Lara Stone, Natalia Vodianova and Irina Shayk. The show kicked off with a series of sliced geode prints on silk slip dresses layered over blush slips, accessorized with oversized agate pendants swinging from tortoiseshell chains. Clingy nude dresses followed, ribbed and with curved seams they hugged the body; an obvious Kim Kardashian West look (less so, the ribbed socks and stiletto combo that grounded every look here). There was no letting up on the body-con silhouette; more dresses followed, from multi-coloured polka dot numbers with mini ruffles, to others with kaleidoscope placement prints, or block coloured versions – in pink, black, and then red – wrapped in streams of silk fringe. His figure-hugging message was unwavering and segued into rigorously razor sharp tailoring. Tonight his black suiting comprised flared trousers and nip-waisted long line tailored jackets with combative zipped pouch pockets on the hips, some came decorated with a scattering of mirrored shards and gems. Although there was plenty to like here, an element of youth subculture or influences from the street were sorely missed, and proceedings could have benefitted from that kind of an edge. Givenchy-Spring-Summer-2016-Bag-Collection-14 Hello ladies, please meet the Givenchy Pandora Chain-All-Over Minaudiere Bag. Oh yes, the Pandora Bag has been reinvented again and it’s more attractive than ever. The original Pandora Bag got its fame due to its unusual shape and generous size. You see, when you fill the bag up, the shape changes completely. Now, the latest Givenchy Pandora Minaudiere Bag is ideal for the evenings. It’s not only the chain you should be craving for but also the cover. Painted in black, you can spot the silver stripes on the center from the top to bottom. The stripes are actually chains embossed, which gives the bag the total luxurious feel. Amazing isn’t? Givenchy-Spring-Summer-2016-Bag-Collection-27 Another bag that is going to be released is the Givenchy Mini Bow-Cut Bag. This bag is quite new, but its fame is rising fast due to its rare design. And in every collection, they’re getting prettier and prettier. For the Spring Summer 2016 Collection, the Mini Bow-Cut will be made with chains. Givenchy-Spring-Summer-2016-Bag-Collection-6 Just as on the runway, the lineup of lookbook images is always deliberate; it provides a trajectory that reveals how we’re meant to read a collection. The latest Givenchy offering opened with a cropped, belled jacket and short skirt—both in crisp white, both bordered in gumball-size pearls—which reinforced the polished esprit at the heart of the house, although Riccardo Tisci’s neo-baroque flair is unmistakably there. This elevated look defined one of three themes that the creative director employed for Resort, and while it may not strike with the same graphic gutsiness as the ancient Egyptian falcon motif reprised from Fall, it suggests he’s finding new interest in the old Givenchy codes. See also the black double-faced jacket with a flattering basque and exposed seams; the matching zip tops and skirts in delicate tulle and lace; the contoured plissé soleil pieces; and even the latest Horizon handbag, which pivots toward a more mature sensibility without compromising on edge. Styling exercises, meanwhile, don’t come more fun than Look 7, an all-black ensemble consisting of four layers that successfully managed to fuse Breakfast at Tiffany’s with Beyoncé. Around this point, classic gives way to what Tisci conceived as the “skinhead romantic” grouping, where the curtain of tulle reappears in ghostly pink paired with a bustier dress supported by thick buckles and a day-to-night bomber. Thanks to wedge boots laced skyward or studded leather triangle bras intended to be exposed, the overall attitude ended up tough, seductive, and tailor-made for his empowered and extroverted tribe. The “urban” notion benefited from mixing logo T-shirts with color-blocked leather motorcycle pants and sport jersey dresses with jackets trimmed in dynamic scrollwork. Let it be known that Givenchy’s concept of camouflage consists of an abstracted paper money pattern. Givenchy-Spring-Summer-2016-Bag-Collection-9 Givenchy-Spring-Summer-2016-Bag-Collection-10 Givenchy presents its Spring 2017 pre-collection, exploring influences ranging from “romantic skinheads” to ’90s underground music scenes. The womenswear collection plays with retro subcultures with micro pleated tulle, maxi Givenchy star prints, white socks and big lace-up boots. There are nods to the house’s traditional code with the use the of blacks and whites, tied blouses and straight skirts, but perhaps more so than ever before, it’s a laboratory for new volumes and shapes, creating silhouettes that are halfway between street and couture. Similarly, the menswear collection is built around the same worlds and influences. There are tonal incrustations on the coats, bombers and sweaters, and more urban-style looks are found in oversized parkas, workwear jackets and tracksuit bottoms with ostentatious signature Givenchy bands. Meanwhile, the suits, jackets and shirts with red band accents underline the brand’s constructed vision of the classic man, as interpreted by creative director Riccardo Tisci. Check out the collection above, and afterwards take a first look at Riccardo Tisci’s NikeLab apparel.

Chanel Classic Bags & Chanel Flap Bag

Categories:Other Brands

Founded in 1909, the house of Chanel has been around for, literally, over 100 years. That is how long the brand has been creating its arsenal of the most coveted, iconic and recognizable purses in the world. And, like all veteran luxury houses, Chanel has their list of enduring classics that are must-knows for any woman who has a soft-spot for handbags. From the Chanel Classic Flap to the Boy Bag, here is our primer on Chanel’s most long-lasting and popular styles.

Chanel has immortalized itself as one of the world’s most chic and classic brands completely in tuned with the stylish and functional needs of its devotees. The beloved Chanel 2.55 is the epitome of the ultimate hands-free bag. Crafted to perfection, it’s quilted lines, flap, CC logo closure and strap make it the perfect day-to-night bag.


Chanel bags

In 1955, after getting tired of carrying her purse in the crook of her arm, Coco Chanel designed a bag that would eventually become her signature “it” bag: the Classic Flap. This iconic, quilted-leather shoulder bag features a long chain-link strap (inspired by the swinging key-chains of the nuns at the convent Chanel grew up in), a turn-lock closure and an interior pocket where Chanel, apparently, hid her “love letters.” Popularly known as the 2.55 for the month and year it was created, the Classic Flap has, over the years, gone through various changes while maintaining its elegant, structured silhouette. Most notably, in the 1980’s, Karl Lagerfeld added a “CC” logo to the turn-lock and intertwined the chain strap with leather which is how it is sold today.


Chanel Re-issue

In February of 2005 – to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 2.55 – Chanel released a version of the Classic Flap that was an exact replica of what Coco Chanel had designed in 1955. The result was the 2.55 Reissue – known simply as the Reissue. The main difference between the Classic Flap and the Reissue lies in its lock and the chain. The lock is the original “mademoiselle” lock with no logo (known as “mademoiselle” because Coco Chanel never married). The chain, unlike the Classic Flap, does not have leather woven through it. While technically a re-issued bag refers only to the year the bag was created (in this case, 2005) the popularity of Chanel’s Reissue turned it into one of the brand’s most enduring bags, and it is produced year after year.


Chanel-Black-Caviar-Timeless-Clutch-BagSince Karl Lagerfeld’s arrival in the 80’s, Chanel’s clutch collection has included some outrageous additions, including the Lego Clutch, the Perfume Bottle Clutch and the Milk Carton Clutch. But, this clutch – the Timeless Clutch – is, well, timeless. Also known as the “Kisslock Clutch” for its frame closure, the bag has the classic Chanel quilted leather and a CC lock. Its half moon shape makes it easy to hold and instantly recognizable.


Chanel GST tote

The Grand Shopping Tote – also known as the GST – is a roomy, carry-about-town shopper and is one of Chanel’s more practical and accessible offerings. It is big enough to be used for travel and durable in the way that Chanel bags generally are (especially those made of caviar leather). The GST has a big, big logo (that can be seen from a distance) and a leather and chain handle that makes the bag breezy and popular. If a Classic Flap, a Re-issue or a Boy Bag are a little too high in cost, the GST is a perfect option as its price point is (slightly) lower.



As the story goes, the Boy Bag – introduced in 2011 by Karl Lagerfeld – was named after Arthur “Boy” Capel, a wealthy polo player who financed Coco Chanel’s first shops and was also her lover and muse (though he was, interestingly, never faithful to her). The bag itself has a structured feel, substantial hardware and a CC turnlock. Like other Chanel classic bags, the Boy Bag tends to retain its value and can even sell for more over time.



The Wallet-On-A-Chain or the WoC is exactly that – a tiny, wallet-like bag that fits what any girl needs to get from point A to point B: cards, bills, lipstick and keys. Combined with the classic Chanel chain, the WoC is a great entry-level Chanel and/or the perfect purse for a younger Chanel user. It features six card slots and a zippered pocket with enough structure to allow for a few other sundry items. The WoC comes in mini versions of the Classic Flap and the Boy Bag as well as other shapes. The chain can be tucked in (so the bag actually is a wallet) or worn as a crossbody.

Well if you haven’t heard it yet, Givenchy’s Fall 2016 Classic Bag Collection is the talk of the buzz in the fashion industry. Yes, this is one thing to look out for, especially to bag lovers out there.

Let’s talk about the Nightingale Bag. This one has been a favorite style staple ever since it’s release in late 2006. Yes, it’s almost a decade old but due to its flare and modernity, it managed to live through its name.

A classic and timeless Givenchy piece, this bag was named after Florence Nightingale. Its versatility due to the two handles and a detachable shoulder strap makes it easier for you to use it either over your shoulder or just wrap it around your hands.

For the Fall 2016 Classic Bag Collection, the Nightingale Bag is seen to be bolder and up-to-date with the added metal crosses adorning it. We are loving this style since you can go from glamour chic to hard punk rakista in less than a second by pairing it with the right clothes and right amount of accessories.


Another bag stunner is the classic Lucrezia Bag. It was introduced to the public three years back, last Spring 2013 to be exact. The Lucrezia dominated the hands of several celebrities such as Charlize Theron, Miranda Kerr and Amanda Seyfried to name a few. Its well-structured style has appealed not only to Hollywood superstars but also to other bag lovers out there.

For the Fall 2016 Collection, we are seeing the Lucrezia bag reinvented. It has this happy-go-lucky vibe with the Givenchy Logo stamped leather. It makes us remember those childhood moments of ours in a good way.
