Bigger, bolder, better: Re-opening of the Givenchy boutique at Paragon

Bigger, bolder, better: Re-opening of the Givenchy boutique at Paragon

New beginnings

Text: Andrea Sim

The revamped space is not the only factor drumming up the excitement for fall. An updated version of Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci's long-reigning It-bag accompanies the store unveiling

Post-reinvention, the brand revealed a larger, symmetrical layout that's reels in even the casual browser. Coveted leather accessories flank the walls on both sides and ready-to-wear pieces are housed in structural open-faced boxes, reminiscent of the way the house's haute couture creations were transported in the past. 

Along with the store revamp, is Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci's iconic bag — the Nightingale — that has been tweaked for the season. The brand's logo that was orignally debossed on the handles has been shifted to a less conspicuous spot — it's now found on the hardware. And true to the key trends of FW15, an edition with goat fur draped over the bag's body has been released (as well as versions in exotic skins).  

The Shark bag that also made its pre-fall debute is available in store along with the new Nightingale, and it's luxe textured leather,  generous flap and clean, sharp edges hint at the makings of the brand's next big hit.
