Givenchy faux fur bag

For Clare Waight Keller’s second ready-to-wear collection for Givenchy, the designer was inspired by the sense of brash, outré glamour in West Berlin in the Eighties, looking to films including 2015’s ‘B-Movie: Lust & Sound in West-Berlin 1979-1989’. The stand out pieces of which, included a host of sculptural faux fur coats. Camel, black, blue and ice white layers were spliced together to create elegant and pizzazz-fuelled outerwear for autumn. Evoking the cuddly yet coquettish coats in the collection, the Parisian maison have also created a range of limited-edition reversible faux fur tote bags. With two different faux furs on each side, the bag turns inside-out to reveal a more stripped back quilted leather tote, punctuated with tufts of fur peeking from within. Why have one, when you can have two?
