The best way to describe the new S/S11 Givenchy Mitre is probably this. If the Pandora and the YSL Besace came together and had a child, the offspring would be, well, the Mitre. Available now at Givenchy Paragon, this is one of those bags that look best cradled under the arm, the generous shoulder drop a boon for those who don’t like too snug a fit.
Defined by its oversized front flap, lift it and you see a clasp that secures the bag to the frame, ensuring nothing gapes open and looks unglamorous. On the inside, expect the usual bells and whistles, including slots and pockets for your bits and bobs.
Besides the one in printed calf fur (shown above) that retails for SGD4900, other versions in lambskin retail for much lower, starting at SGD3050 each. Perfectly fine for work (I’m referring to the lambskin versions of course), or play, it is one of those bags that will stand out from the rest in the crowd and is on its way to becoming a classic in its own right. In other words, I like it.
Have a look yourself. And give me your two cents’ worth.
