The very first Givenchy
store-within-a-store dedicated solely to accessories has opened in the
UK. Givenchy's entire collection of footwear, scarves and
handbags and can be found on the ground floor of Selfridges (flagship) Oxford Street, London. Internally the decor is
decadent black with burnt oak and black steel, inspired by Givenchy
black boxes that were once used to deliver Haute Couture, the store also
references the Parisian boutique on Rue Faubourg Saint-Honore and was a collaboration between British architect Jamie Fobert and Givenchy's Creative Director Riccardo Tisci.
Givenchy has reworked the
coveted The Hobo bag and released the Eclipse for Spring 2009, this
along with new versions of Melancholia and Saccas can be found in the
new accessories store.
