Founded in 1952 in Paris, Givenchy has put its mark on the fashion sphere with its cool, sensual and feminine designs. Since the retirement of Hubert de Givenchy in 2005, the label has continued its success with a string of talented designers. Riccardo Tisci inserted a sense of aristocratic elegance into the collections of the French fashion house, but announced his departure from the brand last month.
Recently departed Creative Director of Chloé, Clare Waight Keller, has been announced as his successor. Needless to say there will be some exciting changes happening at the fashion house, and all eyes will be on their next collection to see which direction she will be taking the label in.
Under Tisci’s reign, the Antigona bag was released by the brand for Autumn/Winter 2011. Since it’s release, it has been seen on the arm of countless celebrities, and its popularity hasn’t waned. The Antigona remains the go-to bag for the fashion crowd, and is a must have for any Givenchy lover.
With its structured silhouette, luxurious leather and polished silver hardware, it is the bag for the modern woman. Carry it by the hand for the evening or by the detachable shoulder strap for a more relaxed daytime bag that is perfect for the office. This bag shows the true modern sophisticated that Givenchy is known for and remains a great choice for 2017.
