The Givenchy Antigona isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, but the super-popular bag is conspicuously absent from the brand’s Pre-Fall 2016 collection, photos of which emerged at the end of last week. Instead, some of Givenchy‘s more recent releases, plus a brand new tote, got the chance to shine.
The images Givenchy released for the collection didn’t include a handbag with every look, unfortunately, but there’s enough information here to draw some solid conclusions. Perhaps most importantly, it feels like Givenchy is readying itself to find a successor to the Antigona when the bag reaches the level of market saturation that all popular designs eventually do.
In addition to that, the monogram print we first saw on Kendall Jenner’s and Cate Blanchett’s bags over the holidays is also going to be available in embossed black leather, which feels more Givenchy-appropriate than the blue fabric on which it makes its debut. You’ll also see a clear emphasis on the relatively new Bow-Cut Shoulder Bag, which I love but wish had a better name.
There’s also a new satchel (tote? both?) that has minimalist finishing and an under-the-radar look that could be a big hit with consumers looking for a versatile bag. Take a look at the images below and let us know what you think in the comments.
