Ten Loves: Givenchy Two-Sided Faux Fur Tote


Opening the Givenchy AW18 show, a tetraptych of lush faux fur coats glided down the catwalk. Highly reminiscent of Bianca Jagger circa 1973, they had an element of DIY in them – they were a different kind of fur coats. It wasn’t about polished, highest form of luxury. The glamour Clare Waight Keller showed was rooted in a gritty, glam rock kinda vibe. The Givenchy girl wasn’t sipping on champagne at Plaza Athénée. No, no. She was jumping in the crowds of an underground rave down in the 13th arrondissement. She’s our kinda girl.

But what does that girl wear on those days when her coat might be deemed just a tad too warm? Boom, boom pow. She’s got the just-released Givenchy faux fur tote bag filled with all her necessities for those long Paris days turned early mornings. Water – because she’s always in desperate need of hydration. A tube of dark, burgundy lipstick – because hello, she’s totally a dark lip kinda gal. And a bottle of the new Eau de Givenchy – well, just because. And the best part of carrying this tote is – once she’s bored with the furry side, Miss Givenchy turns it inside out, with the quilted rubberised canvas side showing off her more subdued side. Doesn’t she sound fun? We need get one of our own. Both the Miss and the Givenchy faux fur tote bag.
