If Kim Kardashian‘s admirers and detractors can agree on anything about her, it’s probably this: Kim has one of the vastest bag collections of any celebrity, and if there’s something she wants but doesn’t currently have, it would not be difficult for her to put her hands on it.
Every brand has its clientele, and among celebrities, Givenchy tends to be super popular among super models. The brand’s streetwear-meets-runway approach to fashion fits in well with the dominant “model off duty” look, and the Givenchy’s bags in particular have found a home in the fans of practically every publicly recognizable model on the planet.
The Givenchy Nightingale was the first Givenchy bag I ever became aware of; before the brand became a handbag juggernaut with multiple super-popular designs, the Nightingale was the first one to catch the eyes of celebs and fashion people.
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.
I know, I know–so many of you don’t want to hear anything else about the Kardashians. But I’m not here to gossip about them, I’m here to share a bag I spotted on Kylie Jenner’s Instagram page that I fell in love with, and I just now found it available for sale online.
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.
Man, I feel like I was quite the pain when it came to getting my Givenchy Antigona. I lamented for months over my color indecision, passing the bag up season after season, waiting for the perfect version to call my name.
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.
