Givenchy is launching its new Givenchy Downtown capsule, a collection full of travel bags meant for urban life. The capsule picks up on the Bow bag first shown at the SS19 Haute Couture show but adds a more “masculine slant.”
Five styles of bags comprise the collection, each featuring black or white nylon with contrasting leather details. Select styles also get a red version or a floral motif. There’s a backpack, small duffle, belt bag, and two cross-body bags: one cylindrical and the other rectangular. Each subtly reprises artistic director Clare Waight Keller‘s “V” detail from her men and women’s silhouettes. The Givenchy Heritage label is underscored by the sweeping red pencil stroke favored by founder Hubert de Givenchy.
The Givenchy Downtown capsule is available in select stores now and will go worldwide later this month. Prices range from $890 for the belt bag to $1,890 for the small duffle.
On this week’s episode of The Dropcast, we are joined by Treis Hill and Rob Cristofaro, partners-in-crime at Alife, who are on to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the New York City-based lifestyle, street, and skatewear brand.
