I am oh-so thrilled to have Le Sac GV3 on our Cosette shelves. Not only that I adore this bag for its wonderful character, I find its history absolutely fascinating. One-of-a-kind Givenchy handbag that embodies the duality that runs through the house.
It is so special that our buying team was able to put their hands on it, bringing it to our doors at the very best price Australia wide.
Unique savoir-faire behind the GV3
Taking its name from the initials of the Maison’s address on the Avenue George V, Paris, number 3, the GV3 marks a unique moment in the brand’s history as the first handbag in a new collection from creative director Clare Waight Keller (previously Chloé house creative director).
Loyal to the Givenchy legacy, sophisticated yet practical, the GV3 is a flap shoulder handbag, composed of 2 separate halves as a whole, closing with the most iconic Double G “kissing clasp”. I remember seeing it as a little girl on my grannie’s Givenchy make-up powder and the fact that Waight Keller has revived it as a signature hardware is bold, meaningful and very brand iconic.
To me, the GV3 is paying homage to the past with today’s aesthetic for clean lines. And that is deeply beautiful.
Tactile materials of the highest quality
I’ve always had a thing for structured frame, well-designed shoulder bags as well as for soft, quilted leather – both synonym of true elegance.
Made in Italy with shiny goatskin chosen for its natural sleek grain, the GV3 pairs it with matt lambskin, with a “Tamponato” finish, which gives more depth to the natural leather character.
Entirely assembled by hand, every stiches and raw seam are hand-painted for the most impeccable finish. A piece of art.

Playful & versatile
Last but not least, the GV3 offers endless ways to wear, let’s be creative ladies – it is time to have fun styling this beauty. Both its removable dual chain and leather shoulder strap allow 4 easy and very different looks to play with, whether you’d like to dress it up or down.
Feature-wise, the GV3 comes in 4 different sizes (Nano to Medium), the Small size being the main brand focus and the Nano designed to be worn as a belt. The Small Flap version has a superbly organised interior, with multiple compartments, pockets and gusset – we love!
Spotted as Meghan Markle favourite’s bag, the GV3 got everything of lady can dream of: beauty, history and timeless elegance.
