My personal favourite out of this season’s Nightingales is the one on the right, made from smooth orange leather. I just love the colour, and when you buy a really special bag, it’s nice if it really stands out, I think.

This bag is again the medium sized bag, and it has the same measurements as the Nightingales above. It also has silver tone hardware throughout, although it does not have the silver logo detail to the base of the handles – the four Givenchy Gs are embossed into the leather.

This style of bag is also available in black – see inset photo on the left. Both of these bags are presented with a signature Givenchy dust bag.
