The Pyramide bag first caught our eye when it floated down the runway in Givenchy’s Spring/Summer 2017 show in Paris. The beautiful twisted leather strap wrapped around and suspended gently from the model’s hand immediately struck us—how can a bag so generous in size look so lightweight and effortless? We knew we’d need to see it up close.
Turns out we were right: form and function are utterly harmonious in Givenchy’s newest edition to the family, the Pyramide tote bag. Let’s break it down:
Form: Crafted from incredibly soft-yet-durable grained leather, the bag is geometric in shape while being soft in structure—a true architectural feat. The supple pyramid silhouette feels subtle and yet totally unexpected, as it’s neither a shopper nor hobo, defying easy categorization. We also really love how clean, architectural, and minimal the exclusive white leather version is for spring.
Function: Make no mistake—this bag is big. Its softness lends itself to slouchy-ness, which masks the fact that it’s actually very roomy at 10.5″ high x 15.0″ wide x 15.0″ deep. This means that it’s a chic home for all your day’s necessities, from a pair of flats to The New Yorker. The twisted leather handles sit comfortable on the shoulder, but are also sturdy enough to grip in your hand should you want to carry it that way.
Leave it to Givenchy to find an edgy, sophisticated solution to the all purpose bag—a well-deserved recipient of Must. Have. Bag. status.
