– Where can I buy the cheapest?
– Which color should I pick?
– Which size should I choose?

No worries, we will help you with that. So shall we start the journey? Read on.

The Story

The story started with an idea from Givenchy’s creative director Riccardo Tisci. The love that he had for masculine and feminine contrast is visible on the Givenchy Antigona Bag. And it’s truly amazing to see how this bag paved its own way to become the iconic bag in the fashion world. It’s now sitting next to the classic Nightingale Bag and it represents as the next icon of the house.

Launched in Fall 2010, The Antigona Bag was destined to become the next ‘IT’ bag as it caught massive attention from the moment it hit the runway. And since that moment, the look of bag never really changed besides a few minor improvement.

The name ‘Antigona’ was inspired by Greek mythology. It comes from the word ‘Antigone’, which was a feminine figure with a strong personality. The name means ‘Unbending’ and it was carefully chosen to match the idea behind the bag.

The Design

Givenchy-Antigona-Bag-Design

The design of the Antigona Bag is mixed with feminine characteristics and masculine detailing. It has the look of a Classic Boston Bag with boxy construction, geometric shape and nice curves. But with sharp details like large modern zipper, exposed stitching, uniquely made metal hooks and leather triangle patch with the house’s signature lettering. These detailing are inspired by the military.

The Antigona Bag has the classic look; it’s like the famous Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag but with more boldness and attitude. The hidden beauty is in the geometric shape and the angles of the design. Combined that with the leather and it catches the natural light, which attracts eyes and attention. The side wings give an extra space in the interior and make it simpler to store bigger items like your laptop or documents.

The Interior

The structure of the interior is quite simple. To begin with, it has one large compartment capable of storing a lot of items. For organizing your essentials, there are two internal pockets and one zipped pocket. The interior is made from cotton canvas lining, which is easy to pull it out to clean and shake the little particles out of the bag.

The Sizes

The measurements:
Givenchy Antigona Mini Bag: 7.7’ x 8.7’ x 5.3’ (W x H x D) inches
Givenchy Antigona Small Bag: 9.4’ x 11’ x 6.5’ (W x H x D) inches
Givenchy Antigona Medium Bag: 11.4’ x 13.4’ x 7.5’ (W x H x D) inches
Givenchy Antigona Large Bag: 12.5’ x 18’ x 8.5’ (W x H x D) inches

When the Givenchy Antigona Bag was launched, there were only two sizes to choose from. It was either the small or the medium size. Later on the house added the large size due to the demand for bigger sizes. The mini size was introduced in the Spring Summer 2014 Collection. But despite of the extra options, the small and the medium sizes remain the best choices.

Select the right size really depends on your personal preference as well as interior and the weight of the bag. The first look for the right interior space, if you have the habit of carrying a lot of items on your everyday bag, then the medium size is the best option.

Then consider your height versus the size and weight of the bag. Because you might not like the look of the medium bag when you are not that tall. And the weight of the bag might be uncomfortable to carry on your shoulder.

Just to give you my personal view; I’m 5’4’ and I choose the medium size because it fits just right. And the interior gives me enough space to store all my essentials. I have read a lot of reviews on the size before I made my purchase and a lot of women choose the medium size too.

The Leathers

From Left To Right: Crocodile, Ostrich, Python, Anaconda

 

Throughout the years, the Antigona Leather selection has been extended from basic leathers to exotic leathers. The basic leathers are calfskin and goatskin, but Givenchy has also released seasonal leathers like rubberized canvas and nubuck suede. The luxury options are crocodile, ostrich, python and anaconda, but these styles depend on the season as well.

Givenchy-Antigona-Calfskin-vs-Goatskin

Calfskin vs Goatskin

 

The calfskin and goatskin are also called the ‘classic leathers’ because they are the most favorable choices. These leathers are available in every season and that’s why we will be covering them extensively here.

The calfskin leather is quite thin and feels really smooth. The leather is very hard and solid, it can hold shape extremely well. What I like about the calfskin is the shine of the leather that enhanced the details of the geometric shape.

The goatskin is pebbled leather and feels luxurious due to its softness. This leather is much more flexible and will get a nice casual slouchy look after long use. However, it’s less shiny than the calfskin leather.

The Antigona Bags in calfskin and goatskin are the perfect choices when you don’t want to baby a bag. And if you hate being careful all the time or worrying about scratches, then we have some goods new. These two leathers are built to last-forever, they’re impeccable and extremely durable. They can endure a lot of abuse and they’re scratch-resistance. Even scratching with nails or coat zippers or knocking the bag hard against the door, these leathers will show almost zero visible scratch. Givenchy is definitely the top when it comes to quality and design.

 

The Colors

From black and navy to beautiful pink, we’ve laid down all the essential colors under one umbrella. The hardest part left is which color you should choose. See them all here:

Givenchy-Antigona-Bag-Neutral-Colors

 

Neutral Colors

These are considered neutral colors because they’re easy to match with any style in your wardrobe. The Antigona Bag adorned with these safe colors will look fabulous and timeless. They’re perfect shades for an everyday bag. The color black is the most favorite choice among a lot of women and celebrities, and it easy to understand why. This color enhanced the classic design of the Antigona and it’s also easier to clean and maintain.

If the black shade is too boring, you can always opt-in for the navy. It has the same darker appeal and it has the same advantage like easy-to-clean and easy-to-match. Navy is interesting especially when you have too many of the same colors in your wardrobe.

Givenchy-Antigona-Bag-Bright-Colors

 

Bright Colors

Bold colors like red and purple can be worn in all season, but yellow and orange marries better with summer outfits. Some bright colors are only available in certain seasons and but they do look cute on the mini size of the Antigona Bag. If you’re looking for an everyday bag, then the neutral colors would be the best choice, but if you’re looking for an Antigona Bag to match a certain style in your wardrobe, then pick a bright color.

Givenchy-Antigona-Bag-Metallic-Colors

 

Metallics

Givenchy has also launched shiny metallic colors in gold and rose pink. These colors are not available in every season, but they do like gorgeous and luxurious.

Givenchy-Antigona-Bag-Exotic-Colors

 

Exotic Choices

Even tough they come with an higher price-ticket, but the exotic leathers like crocodile and ostrich in bright colors do create and exclusive appeal of luxury.
