Givenchy Nightingale Travel Trolley


You know when you love something so much you wish there were more of it and bigger? Like a chocolate ice cream cone! Well, this isn’t like that. If you love your Nightingale you will be baffled and appalled by the trolley version. First of all, this thing is huge, it is 27.5″, approximately the height of a 3 year old and is as wide as a barrel. I wish I had a scale but using my best estimate, I say it weighs 10 lbs, empty. I’m pretty sure this is too big for the overhead compartment and forget about getting it under the seat. Actually, I’m pretty sure it will get stuck in the TSA X-Ray conveyor belt (it is 2 feet wide!!). So the only need this serves is stay-cations. I don’t want to be judgmental or a bitch but people who never travel farther than their own zip code probably won’t have a need for a $3650 trolley. Imagine trying to find a pair of socks, you will need to upturn the entire contents to get anything. Totally ridiculous. The black is available at Linde Store and both black and off white stamp croc ($3785) are at Barneys New York in Beverly Hills (310) 276-4400. Other textures/colors at

  1. They have it at Nordstrom as well. I had a client buy it for her meetings in the city (D.C and NYC) so she can still wear her handbag and look “normal” INSTEAD of a bag lady.

  2. Bag Snob Kelly– I love you guys! I just can’t get with this bag. I agree w/ Terence [paraphrasing]… it’s too much of a good thing turned bad. “Yikes!!!”
