Everyone knows the essential ingredient to any good outfit is a statement bag. For S/S 23, Givenchy present the Voyou - which translates to 'bad boy' in French slang - as modelled by supermodel Gigi Hadid. The everyday hobo, unveiled on the runway last September, is described as 'part of a dynamic manifesto on urban dressing by creative Director Matthew M. Williams', bringing a leather biker attitude to Parisian chic in the eyes of the Givenchy maison.
'I wanted to revisit fashion archetypes with a kind of new language and a playful attitude. With the Voyou, you know at a glance that it's Parisian, but it's at home wherever it goes, and it makes an everyday style statement that has true staying power', explains Williams.
Subtly grained calfskin features luxurious turned edges, and is available in tumbled or metallized leather, plus soft crafted denim, satin or strass. Ready for everyday wear and tear, the Voyou will still maintain it's elevated, graceful appeal. Designed with ease of use in mind for the modern woman, the medium and large styles of the handbag feature no fastening mechanism and instead fold over to close, but include a zippered compartment inside. A mini version is designed with a zip closure, and all have adaptable straps embossed with Givenchy lettering.
