Givenchy Camel Pandora Messenger Bag
When it comes to fashion investments, it's hard to go wrong with a classic leather handbag in a neutral color that, with the proper care, you'll be carrying for years. This is one of those bags, but with a bit of a twist -- a little bit of hardware and an ever-so-slightly different shape add some extra visual interest.

The Givenchy Camel Pandora Messenger Bag is crafted from a crinkled camel-colored leather with goldtone hardware. It has a double top zip main compartment with an additional front zip pocket. There is a simple gold embossed Givenchy logo at the top of the bag, and the interior is lined in a pale beige.

Unless you are one of those people who are really good at hidden picture drawings, it's going to take you a minute to figure out the perspective of this photo (and the additional photos you can view when you click through). You're looking at this handbag from the top. It's essentially a slightly-slouchy rectangle shape, but the single top handle is on one side of the rectangle. The result? A diamond shaped bag when you carry it by the top handle. Don't worry, there's also a removable shoulder strap for more conventionally carrying.

A rich leather bag in a classic color, but with a twist of a shape? That's definitely an investment-worthy handbag.
