Not be confused with the Obsedia (which it kinda looks like), or even the Antigona Envelope Clutch that has almost the same austere lines, here’s another bag from Givenchy that’s more a workhorse of a briefcase than say, a pretty shoulder sling.
Known simply as the Shark, which I believe is a reference to its signature shark toothed-shaped twist lock clasp, this one in Large measures some 46 cm across by 30 cm in height, ample enough for say, a MacBook, work files and then some. Not offered with the option of a shoulder sling (a small nay in my books), you carry it either in your hand or over the shoulder, with a drop of almost 20 cm more than enough even to fit the thickest of shoulders.
Lined in suede with 3 sizeable pockets for all your bits and bobs, this one, in croc-embossed leather is also my favourite and retails for GBP1690. Now available online via Net-A-Porter, you could also consider the one in Medium (39 cm by 27 cm) in white croc-embossed leather (GBP1590). The ones in this size also come with the shoulder sling, which is an added bonus. Or just consider the medium one in plain black leather which is the same in terms of the size (and the added sling) as the former but sells for just GBP1350.
In other words, if you’re looking for a reasonably-sized (or much larger) workhorse, this is one bag you should add to your wish list.
