Q: Congrats on your column in CATALOG! Really love the magazine too! I have a question for you. I was wondering if a guy can carry off the Givenchy Nightingale? I am 180 cm in height and slim. I was thinking of either getting it in Large, or getting the largest YSL Downtown available. What do you think?
A: Dear Joey, thanks for your love and support! To be honest I have not heard of this bag till today, and after doing some research, my answer is yes. Quite simply, it looks andrygonous enough for both a girl or a guy, and frankly since the Large measures almost 35 cm by 41 cm, it will be too big for girls with small petite frames anyway.
And as for which one you should get, let me just say this. I have seen enough guys sashaying down the street with a YSL Downtown to last me a lifetime, but I have yet to see anyone tote a Givenchy Nightingale. And if you like what you are seeing above, it is available at On Pedder at SGD3000.
