GIVENCHY NIGHTINGALE F/W'11

Fall-Winter 2011 marks a revival of sorts - as we see brands and designers re-imagine key classic pieces for this cold and frosty season. Following the clamor people had over Spring-Summer'11 was a daunting task to achieve. Nonetheless, fashion houses such as Givenchy has done an even more amazing job with its F/W'11 pieces. Of note from the collection would be the classic Givenchy Nightingale re-envisioned with such stated panache and elegance. This season, we see this design injected with various forms of life but 2 designs have called my attention - first of which would be this gorgeous Studded Nightingale.

Made from luscious lambskin, this studded beauty is a sight for sore eyes. The golden studs add a bit more life to the typically classic looking bag. It is sturdy to lug around and soft enough to hug making it the perfect travel bag for those long holiday flights away.

Available in 3 colors - deep black, light grey and dark brown - these pieces should be available in your neighborhood Givenchy shops. I haven't seen them anywhere online yet, but Givenchy Paragon Singapore has a few of these pieces available with more colors coming in. For those interested, you can head on down the shop with SGD 3100 [for the large size] for your very own piece of luxury. Just ask the shop's uber friendly and accommodating SA's [look for C or Benny] and they'll gladly wrap up a piece for you.

Another piece in the collection, which I personally adore, would be the Nightingale Shopping Tote. It's a perfect shopping tote - lightweight, sturdy and tastefully designed to be the envy of any shopper out there. This design officially makes the Givenchy Nightingale a unisex piece as this bag can be carried by male fasione-istas out there. Available as well in 3 colors - black, brown and khaki - it's a steal for the SGD 2350 you'll have to shell out if you purchase here in Singapore. Alternatively, you can head on over to Luisaviaroma where it's available for around €1145 [not including shipping and taxes].

So what do you guys think? Time to whip out those credit cards and get shopping! This bag is definitely a.Must Have piece to add to your growing bag collection.
