In late 2006, French label Givenchy introduced the Nightingale. Named after Florence Nightingale, a nurse known for her pioneering work during the Crimean war, the bag with its simple and relaxed design became the chic alternative to the utilitarian trend.
Gaining an “it” status, thanks to Hollywood’s helping hands, the bag was spotted being carried by the likes of the Olsen twins, prior to the launch of their own line. Since then, the label has added more bags to its roster, introducing other styles like the Pandora, the Antigona, and the Lucrezia.
