Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci introduces a new range of backpacks called the 17, new interpretations of the brand’s iconic men’s’ accessory. Comprising of two styles, the 17 is inspired by the duffle bag and is designed with utility, sport, and sophistication in mind. Two large versions both reflect the theme of the FW 14 collection.
One, in nylon, features the lines of a basketball court; the other, in smooth, slightly shiny white leather, is designed with a flag patch and zippered shoulder straps. Each style has handles which allow it to be used as either a duffle bag or a backpack. All styles feature signature Givenchy silver-finish hardware and zippers as well as interior metal brand plates and stitched nylon shoe bags.
The bags will be available in Givenchy stores at the end of July.
