Bag Browsin': Givenchy Ombre Tassel Messenger

This bag seems to be quite controversial--judging from the seven comments on Bagsnob's posting--but I find myself drawn to it. A few commenters had said its design is unimaginative, but I was never one for too many bells-and-whistles on a handbag anyway.

It's just very clean and modern, with a full-length tassel for an edgy rock n' roll edge. (It also comes in an ochre-like color, but I much prefer the black version.)

What I like:
  • Not too big and bulky, but the size can accomodate magazines.
  • Would be easy to travel with--just lay flat in a suitcase
  • Convenient zip pocket on the exterior for keys, Metrocard, Blackberry/iPhone
  • Can be worn as a shoulderbag or as a messenger with a cross-body strap

Seen at Barneys New York for $1270.


  1. It's a pretty shape. A nice everyday tote. But I don't think it's priced reasonably!

  2. I like it,but it's to expensive
