I’ve been looking for small shoulder bag for a while so I was a little jealous when I saw these photos of Liv Tyler with the Givenchy Melancholia. The bag has an 8″ shoulder drop and large leather flap with magnetic closure. The same classic style as the Chanel and Lanvin handbags but with a shoulder strap embellished with gorgeous, gold studs. This strap is removeable so it also doubles as a clutch for a more formal look.
Given Chanel’s reputation lately this looks like a great alternative, if it was around $1000 cheaper I’d definitely consider it!
You can purchase Liv’s Givenchy Melancholia Studded bag at Barneys for just over $1700.
