Givenchy’s 4G handbag is uncompromisingly essential and versatile
French fashion power house, Givenchy presents 4G, the new essential handbag by Creative Director Matthew M. Williams. The 4G handbag first caught our attention in the label’s Pre-Fall 2021 collection because of its architectural lines and a distinctive attitude.It is both modern and timeless, and the ideal signature for any silhouette, whether by day or by night. The 4G handbag is a fresh take on an already iconic emblem as it preserves the perfect symmetry prized by Hubert de Givenchy himself, while reflecting the cosmopolitan air and clean, crisp aesthetics Matthew M. Williams has established for the House.
The 4G stands out for its pure leatherworking savoir-faire at first glance. Williams worked closely with Givenchy’s expert craftsmen to select the finest, full-grain box calf skins to achieve a sleek, graphic update on the classic rectangular handbag. The clasps reflects his love of industrial hardware, meticulously worked using a highly technical process and a precise alchemy of noble metals. The bag’s padlock design is utilitarian yet luxurious, a nod to the creative director’s debut Spring-Summer 2021 collection for Givenchy.
Both 4G styles include a flap bag and a chain bag that blend uncompromising luxury with perfect versatility, moving seamlessly from clutch to shoulder or crossbody styles of wear. The 4G flap bag comes with an elegant, removable strap that may be adjusted thanks to discreet metal brackets. The 4G chain bag features the House’s new, custom-made G-link chain in glamorous silver- or gold-finished metal, which glides through metal hoops to adapt as desired.
The interior of each 4G bag is as beautiful as it is functional. The small 4G flap bag features a main compartment for the essentials, with a flat pocket for storing important cards. Inside the medium 4G flap bag are two flat pockets and one card pocket for ease of use.
The 4G chain bags open to reveal a compartment with six card slots and one flat pocket for the small version, or a roomy interior with a single flat pocket for the medium version. A stylish and practical shoulder piece in leather keeps it anchored in place.
Comes in unique colors
The 4G is available in a wide variety of colors, from neutral black, ivory, or cappuccino beige to seasonal shades of avocado green, baby pink, red and dark khaki. Special finishes include an all-over 4G monogram achieved through high-frequency debossing on leather for a three-dimensional effect (in ivory, pink or black).
Patent leather versions, in black or sky blue, have a wrinkled finish. A 4G in snake-printed lambskin creates a highly realistic impression of exotic leather; a version in dark emerald green python with gold hardware is also available.
