I love this bag. I think that is very practical as an everyday bag but has a beautiful silhouette, I say go for it! Are you thinking about white or black? I think that Henri Bendel in NYC carries Givenchy bags, and obviously the Givenchy boutique on Madison.
i have the maxi nightingale in black distressed patent. very limited edition. it is amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it reminds me of my bal bags, when no one knew what they were, when they first came out. i get fabulous reactions on the street from people demanding to know what my bag is and where i got it.
I wouldn't wait til it goes on sale. Personally, I've never seen Givenchy on sale.. they're hard enough to come across to even think about missing the chance to buy them!! I say, GO FOR IT!! And do show pics afterwards, puhleeze?
I say buy it. It's an investment. I saw a photo posted of one tpfer's in anthracite. I have been trying to find one in the same color to no avail. I'm going to Barney's this weekend to check their stock out.
