The name “Antigona” isn’t new in the fashion vocabulary: Givenchy first introduced the bag in their Fall/Winter 2011 collection. The top-handle bag with its boxy shape and triangular logo quickly rose to fame, making it Givenchy’s most recognizable product. The Antigona seems to be loved by so many because of its sophisticated, sleek aesthetic, with a hint of edginess.
Earlier this year, the iconic Tisci-design got a remodeling to celebrate the bag’s ten-year anniversary: The Antigona Soft has a more relaxed shape but the details remain the same. The new version is not only made to grace women’s arms, for the upcoming season the designer house adapted the design for the Givenchy man as well.
The subtle sensuality found in the women’s style is now enhanced with more generous, masculine proportions. With options coming in a timeless black calf leather or woven leather in red, white and black, it is sophisticated yet versatile. The bag launched in a maxi size, as seen in our latest issue, making it wearable for every day or perfect as a weekender bag.
The release comes a month before the debut show of Givenchy’s new creative director Matthew Williams in Paris, opening a new chapter for the house: reminiscent of the past, but revamped in a beautiful way for the new generation.
As a special bonus, here’s a behind-the-scene glimpse into the Givenchy fall/winter collection.
