Riccardo Tisci and the notion of understated luxury might seem like unlikely bedfellows. Having defined Givenchy in the last decade with his artful opulence and dark romanticism, there are but a few pockets in time where the designer has his moments of quiet. Enter the brand's FW16 must-have, the Horizon bag. Holding back on signature Tisci iconography and idiosyncratic slogans, its charm is just that simple: A hint of a house motif buoyed by classic design sensibilities and sheer quality.
Save from incorporating the horizontal stripe native to their now famed graphic T-shirts, Tisci has left the Horizon beautifully unadorned — shining the spotlight on its robust construction and exquisite leather. Built to last and true to Givenchy's standards of practicality with accessories, expect nothing but ease when it comes to handling the Horizon — it's wide opening, generous width and versatility will have you reaching for it on a daily basis.
