The Givenchy Antigona is one of those bags that continues to gain popularity at a point in its life cycle when any other bag would be starting to fizzle out as consumers move on to other things, and that’s how you know it’s one of the few truly exceptional pieces out there right now.
If you’re sick of hearing about the holidays, gift-buying, traveling and everything else, we’ve got a brief respite for you in the way of the Givenchy Spring-Summer 2015 handbag lookbook. The upcoming collection has new versions of all the hits Givenchy lovers have come to know and love, plus a couple of new designs.
Black Givenchy Antigona Bags aren’t exactly a tough sell; not only has the brand been moving them briskly for seasons, but the ultra-expensive exotic versions sell out before they even hit the sales floor. It’s the kind of bag every designer dreams of creating, because it more or less enables a company to print money for a couple of years.
I mentioned last week that a set of new Givenchy floral bags had been added to and then promptly removed from Bergdorf Goodman’s website, but now they’re back, ostensibly for good. The print, new for Resort 2015 and hot on the heels of Givenchy’s super-popular camofloral, is dotted with magnolia blossoms and butterflies.
Here’s Alicia Keys, traveling through LAX in a really comfy-looking travel outfit, carrying an intriguing Givenchy Lucrezia Bag that looks to be a combination of black and green suede, regular leather and croc-embossed leather. We couldn’t find this version online, but you can pick up a basic black version of the Lucrezia for $2,000 at farfetch.com.
Last week, several of Givenchy’s Resort 2015 bags appeared on Bergdorf Goodman’s website as available for pre-order. They were removed shortly thereafter, and although I don’t know why, I know that I’d like them to come back so that I can share them with you–they were great, and there’s a new floral for everyone to obsess over.
Well, I am officially a broken record. I’ve loved the Givenchy Antigona from the moment I first saw it and continued to go back and forth with myself over buying one. I waited so long I was thinking I didn’t want one, I hate getting a bag after it’s reached mass consumption (similar to what happened with the Celine Luggage Tote).
