So here you are. A confident, young woman with a love for luxury, an aesthetic of modern, edgy femininity, with a huge appreciation for timeless elegance - and you're looking to buy the perfect bag to compliment your look... a bag like the spiced up version of the classic Givenchy Antigona.
The Antigona bag has been deemed one the most iconic bags of the century. Introduced in Fall 2010, with its chic, minimalist silhouette, Givenchy took the world by a storm when they created the perfect every day bag. Available in multiple different sizes, leathers, and colours - the Antigona is the "It" bag that never goes out of style.
Although it may be the confirmed go-to bag for every day fashionistas, this bag has also been seen regularly on the arm of countless celebrities including the Kardashians, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Hilary Duff, Rhianna, and Nicole Ritchie.
Under the creative direction of Riccardo Tisci, the brand's creative director for 12 years, Givenchy presented its Resort 2017 collection featuring unique twists on classic styles. This collection also released the now popular Nobile Shoulder bag, a small flap bag with a gold-tone buckle closure. By adding studs, piping, stitching, and different patterns, Givenchy transformed their classic pieces, that everyone knows and loves, into statement pieces.
The Resort 2017 bag collection offers a diverse number of pieces targeted towards a younger client base. These bags are perfect for modern young women with an individual sense of style. The collection gives us major rock n' roll vibes with an understand element of punk, while staying true to the bags original chic and sophisticated aesthetic. The top handle Antigonas come in a range of different selections with unique touches including crocodile-embossed patches, chain piping, and white and red stitching, where as the totes come in a white and black checkered print and a khaki, dollar sign print.
Givenchy has dominated the bag industry for years, with their timeless silhouettes and constant must-haves, it's clear that the Antigona is just one example of the brands' obvious success. It's safe to say that if a London socialite took the form of a hand bag - it would definitely be the Givenchy Antigona.
