Back in July, Amanda asked you which popular bag you thought was ready for retirement. It’s personal choice and of course what one person may deem is over another may just be starting to love. There are certain bags however that hit the ‘I’ve got to have this’ wave and ride it for quite sometime and the Givenchy Antigona is one of them. When this bag became popular, it seemed as though everyone wanted one and everyone had one.
The beauty of the Antigona lies in its shape that is different from most bags and clean lines that makes it wearable day after day and season after season. Few bags become must-haves for the masses in plain black leather, but the Antigona did. Google image search “Givenchy Antigona” and you will see many of the images of black Antigonas spotted throughout the first pages. We actually just covered Lily Aldridge and her Givenchy Antigona which she still can’t seem to get enough of! This bag was a staple, and it seemed it wouldn’t die down. But inevitably, this Givency bag has, just like majority of bags do, and there isn’t the same craze anymore.
But does that mean this bag is over?
I was doing my typical daily online browsing and ran into the black Givenchy Antigona pictured above today. I recognized it right away and for a minute, I thought – hey, I still like that bag. But do I love it? The Antigona became so well-loved that it hit a saturation point and just like all other bags, new bags popped up that made it on people’s wish lists. While this wouldn’t be the next black bag I add to my collection, I want to ask you for your opinion in the comments below.
Buy the classic black version above for $2,435 at Net-A-Porter.
