IT PLAYS WITH CONTRASTS

Introduced in Pre-Fall 2019, the Mystic bag captures the allure and contradictions of Clare Waight Keller’s collections for Givenchy. It is built with a structured silhouette in calf leather, yet topped with a graceful V-shaped flap — making it at once soft and sophisticated, powerful and restrained. More contrasts abound on the inside, where you’ll find a suede lining in a different shade from the bag’s façade.

IT'S ROOMY ENOUGH FOR ALL YOUR STUFF

With its refined shape, the Mystic bag boasts ample room for carrying your belongings. There’s also a handy flat pocket on the back to keep your essentials close. The Mystic bag works its magic well enough as a handbag, but you can also transform it into a crossbody with a detachable and adjustable strap.

IT IS MEANT FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

Like to keep your stuff hidden from prying eyes? The flap of the Mystic bag does just that, whether you carry it open or closed. The most enticing part of it is the stylized double-G clasp that remains partially covered by the flap, creating an aura of secrecy.

IT IS FULL OF CHARMS (AND TRINKETS)

There are other details meant to be seen, however. The Mystic bag is lined with hand-made topstitching and hand-painted edges. It also features a soft handle impressively made with three layers: suede, calf leather and hand-applied bombé cushion.

And if you wish, the bag can be adorned even further with large, gold-finish charms in the shape of a dice, a whistle or a medal covered by a leather sheath. If not, the bag stands out on its own in any of its available colours: black, natural, desert, storm grey, aubergine, pale pink, yellow and lichen.

The Givenchy Mystic handbag is now available in Givenchy stores and at givenchy.com.
