The Material Boy #363

Givenchy Studded Black Nylon Duffel And Nightingale Bag

To continue my 'studs' craze brought about by those Christian Louboutin Studded Freddy Flat shoes, I search high and low to find a worthy arm candy to 'match make' those 'lonely' shoes. A shoe of this level of appeal needs a bag with lots of personality.

During my recent trip to Bangkok early this month, I encountered this Givenchy Studded Duffel Bag in black nylon and gold studs in person at Club 21 Accessories, Siam Paragon. I fondled fondly with the bag, but gave up the idea to buy it for fear of the small size not being too suitable for guys. However, affirmation in the appeal of the bag comes when fame blogger Pelayo Diaz bought the exact same duffel and was seen spotting it during his rounds at the recent Men's fashion week.

The bag has aplenty of character when worn right! Pelayo rocks the bag with his James Dean hair, leather jacket and signature kilt look. I heart!

Apparently, the studded design comes in the Nightingale (EUR 757) or tote style design which can be bought here.

Yay or nay for studs?

The difference is: Pelayo is a cutie pie and he can wear ANYTHING unlike us mere mortals.

well, if you have more confidence and match it right, I am sure u can pull off the bag too! It's quite a neutral bag in the first place.

the bag you're showing is not the one he's wearing BUT that doesn't change anything.
he's lovely with it and the givenchy bag is simply amazing as well

Yes, I cannot seem to find any pics of the duffel style bag. But this studded range comes in Nightingale, tote, clutch and this duffel style that Pelayo is wearing:-)

Cool eh? Quite a stunning bag!

I do like more the holdall over the one with the gold spikes.
it's bigger and much more chic.
