One of the things that has made the "nightingale" one of Givenchy's most sought after bags is the simplicity and classic nature which makes it timeless. It has been coming back for a few seasons now, in different colors and textures. The Alternative is the Deux Lux Oversized Basic Satchel from Urbanoutfitters. com. It is simple and roomy-two of the most basic words you can use to describe the appeal of the Nightingale. At $58.00, it is significantly less than Givenchy's $2,000+ Old Pepe Nightingale. Whichever one you choose, it is sure to stay in your closet for a long time, and be your "go-to" bag when you need simplicity and SPACE. One of the main, and most important details missing from the budget friendly version is the huge zipper running down the large shoulder strap. If this is the reason it appeal to you, you can get a zipper at a fabric store and crazy glue(my favorite!) it right on. It not only makes your bag unique, but you have the liberty of choosing the tone(color) of zipper(brass, goldtone, silvertone, etc)!
