Remember the Louis Vuitton Fox Tail Clip from Spring 2010? I remember the conversation that went on over at the Bag Forum. You either loved it or hated it, there really was no in between. So when I stumbled across the Elena Ghisellini Lara Raccoon Hobo, my thoughts went straight to that conversation that took place over a year and a half ago.
Givenchy bags: The Pandora, Antigona, Nightingale have a luxurious rocker chic vibe about that that says edge and sophistication all at one time. I’ve been eyeballing their bags for awhile now but hadn’t made the plunge. Prices range from $1178 for a mini Pandora to a over $2,100 for a large Nightingale. Serious stuff.
While perusing the Luisa Via Roma site, I ran across Elena Ghisellini bags and thought they looked quite similar. So, I did a little research. Turns out she is the Givenchy designer behind those serious bags! So, there’s definitely going to be some similarities!
Beautiful distressing and treatments to the leather with minimal hardware. Classic, sophisticated and hard-working, these bag have character and amazing style. What’s more, the price point for her line is around $900 for each bag! Deserves a look, right?!
My favorite bag from her line is the Grainy Top Handled Bag for $938. It’s available in black and taupe. The bag is rectangular and measures 14.5″ x 19.5″ with an 8″ strap drop that lays nicely across the bag giving it an angled side appearance. Two rolled leather top handles finish the bag.
