Actress Sophia Bush was recently seen leaving lunch at a restaurant in West Hollywood, carrying a Givenchy Antigona Bambi Tote. Givenchy tends to gravitate towards extremes when it comes to prints. They do abstractions of Disney characters, pretty florals and snarling Rottweilers, and they’re all wildly popular.

Here’s Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, making air travel look especially glamorous at JFK. She’s carrying a Givenchy Ayers-Trimmed Antigona Bag, one of many Givenchy bags in her collection.

Why It’s the Bag of the Week: One of the things that gives Givenchy’s bags their intense appeal is how the brand manages to find new ways to adorn the traditional shapes each season.
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.
Here’s model/actress/exquisite dresser Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, heading into a London studio for a shoot, carrying a Givenchy Lucrezia Bag. This Lucrezia looks a little flashier than most because of the chain trim, which is quite the contrast to the white Dolce & Gabbana bag we spotted Rosie carrying at Cannes.
The Givenchy Antigona Bag is not new; in fact, the design first debuted in late 2011. Unlike other designs, which are lucky to be in the limelight a few seasons in a row, the Antigona has not only stayed relevant and well-loved, but there’s also been a recent surge in popularity for this Givenchy design.
We’ve talked previously about menswear’s recent, vibrant facelift, especially when it comes to the accessory market’s various printed and patterned bags. Designers have gone beyond the traditional stripes and plaids that are often associated with menswear, and these new choices indicate an edgier and more androgynous approach.
Rachel Zoe was recently spotted running errands on her home turf with husband Rodger and son Skyler. Here’s Rachel carrying a black Givenchy Lucrezia Bag with a croc panel while picking up a few items at the Malibu Country Mart. You can find a similar black Lucrezia with a quilted panel for $2,450 at Barneys.
