Over the weekend, there was quite the rainstorm as I headed out for a pedicure. I snatched up my Givenchy Antigona, as that was the bag I’ve been using the previous few days, and quickly headed into the car.
If you’re a normal human who likes fashion and occasionally buys something nice for yourself, you’ve probably been shamed for it at some point, by someone. Friends, boyfriends or girlfriends, parents, coworkers, the parents of your kids’ friends–everyone’s got an opinion about how other people should spend their money.
We’ve spent weeks upon weeks talking about what to get the people in our lives for the holidays and what we hope to receive ourselves, and now, the big day has come and gone. While you eat leftover Christmas cookies for breakfast and think about cleaning up all the spent wrapping paper in the living room, we want you to share your favorite gifts with us.
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.
Fashion is like any other form of creative expression: an opportunity to be publicly clever or publicly inane, depending on your natural predilection. Saint Laurent’s Hedi Slimane generally chooses the latter, even if he makes some damn fine Chelsea boots, and he’s at it again with the Saint Laurent Metallic Gun Clutch.
