First introduced in the season of Fall/Winter 2010, Ricardo Tisci’s gothic leanings and couture mastery are who to thank for one of Givenchy’s most coveted items. In fact, the Antigona seems to be only growing in popularity, so much so the French fashion house subsequently released the “mini” size on the Spring/Summer 2014 runways. But why is it so sought after?
Inspired by “Antigone” – a feminine figure from Greek mythology with a strong character – the bag speaks volumes of Tisci’s love of the masculine/feminine contrast – just look to the sculpted silhouette and glossy exteriors for proof. The architectural style comes in a variety of sizes, skins and colours (from black to pink and snakeskin to goat skin).
The classic design and multiple updates make this a classic, and have been seen on the arm of editors and A-Listers everywhere, from Rosie Huntington-Whitley to Olivia Palermo.
