It seems like all of our favorite bags are getting major upgrades for fall. First the Fendi 2Jours went alligator, and now the Givenchy Antigona Bag has debuted in an ultra-expensive crocodile version, beating the price of the 2Jours by nearly $8,000. If you’re bargain-minded and also fabulously rich, I suppose Givenchy just made your purchase decision for you.
This bag is also the most expensive bag at Neiman Marcus by a nearly $7,000 margin (the next most expensive is Gucci), and it also beats the most expensive bag at all the other major retailers we checked by at least the same amount, if not far more. It also beats everything on our list of the most expensive bags of Spring 2014, making it the current Internet handbag champion, at least if you measure winning by which price would make an average person the most light-headed.
As with the alligator 2Jours, this bag is an indicator of where there’s money to be made in the luxury industry. When you’re fabulously wealthy, keeping up with the Joneses is more like an arms race where the weapons are ever-more-expensive luxury goods.
If you’ve got some spare money hiding in your couch cushions on your yacht, you can pre-order this bag for $35,900 at Neiman Marcus.
