As soon as Givenchy’s Bambi-print (or “deer print” – I’m pretty sure Disney doesn’t want Givenchy using their trademarked name, but I see what I see) sportswear hit the runways back in February, it was a foregone conclusion that, like the Givenchy Rottweiler before it, the pieces would become immediate favorites of industry folks and celebs alike and make an appearance in practically every street style picture for the next six months. Anna Dello Russo gave the sought-after Bambi sweatshirt her seal of approval during Paris Fashion Week, and now the Givenchy Bambi Antigona Tote is here to satiate the handbag lovers.

Riccardo Tisci’s streetwear-meets-high-fashion prints have been fashion favorites for several seasons now, and this fusion of cartoons and high art is exactly the sort of high-low mash-up that’s made them so popular. It’s mass but it’s luxe, it’s girlish but it’s tough, it’s artsy but it’s not hard to understand. Givenchy’s cultural references tend to land directly in a sweet spot that makes them covetable to a wide variety of people of both genders, and this tote’s simple shape makes a ready canvas for the image, just like it did for the Rottweiler tote. While they’re still available, pick up yours for $1,085 via Net-a-Porter.

    I’m sorry, I may be the only one but I don’t understand the second half of the picture. Obviously this is Bambi/deer and … what? And what does that have to do with Bambi? Thanks!

      Glad that you wrote that. I am not getting it either. I see two women, one is turning to the side (you see the legs and her left arm) and one you see from the front (you see her face and again her left arm). As for the rest – there are some further shades – I have no idea.

      At first I did not like this bag at all, but it starts to grow on me. I like it when there is something to discover. Not that I would buy it though.

    I don’t get it. The print is just weird, and it looks like two different handbags sewn together.

    I’m sure Disney endorsed this for bambi, as the Disney brand logo is on the back of the little purse that comes in the shopper.
