If you’re a connoisseur who appreciates elaborately detailed minaudiere like those from Alexander McQueen recently, you’ll most definitely appreciate the Givenchy Flower Minaudière, a stunning confection of red satin, black and gold beads stitched into swirly floral patterns that are then stretched over the clutch proper.
Topped with what looks like a bird in flight (it’s actually a stylised cross section of the vertebrae), it’s the type of head-turning, conversation-starting, drool-inducing clutch you’ll want to have at your side when you’re on a night out that requires a certain degree of pomp and pageantry. Retailing for SGD3200, it’s now available at Givenchy Paragon.
Something else worth a second look are these: the delicately-detailed, almost fragile silver metal and strass brooches from Givenchy that are more heirloom than harlot. Available in both crystal and black strass variations, these show-stopping pieces will do well on the lapel of any formal black suit, or as a gorgeous centrepiece in the middle of your LBD. I’m so smitten I’m already diverting funds to bring one home, even if it will cost me SGD1550 a pop.
