Aptly named the Eden handbag to reflect the “lush paradise” titled Winter of Eden that inspired Waight Keller’s design for the autumn/winter ‘19/’20 season, the bag is being touted as the most interchangeable and personal piece the house has ever released. Featuring strong lines, graphic colours and a range of exotic finishes, the Eden handbag is undeniably a hero piece of the season. But Waight Keller was also thinking of every woman when she designed this bag, because it allows the wearer to adjust and personalise it to fit their own personal style.
Waight Keller has also designed a release of teeny-tiny leather accessories designed to complement the medium-size Eden, including round, accordion or zipped card cases that also come with leather straps so that they can be worn either around the wrist or as a pendant.
The vision for the Eden is one of versatility, so that the wearer can not only personalise their look but change it from day to night and from season to season. Yet the Eden bag is instantly recognisable as a Givenchy house piece – thoughtful details represent codes of the house, including geometric stitching in the house’s signature ‘V’ shape – an echo of the GV bag and a reference to Givenchy’s couture necklines.
In its first campaign starring the house’s new face, Ariana Grande, uniquely titled #Arivenchy, the iconic singer could be seen with the Eden bag perched on her shoulder, proving it’s not only the perfect statement accessory for a modern icon but also the modern woman.
