Features and History

For a little bit of history, the Givenchy Antigona was first introduced in the Givenchy Fall/Winter 2011 collection, and has been reiterated in many different colors and materials since then.

The Antigona is a satchel with a silhouette similar to a duffle bag. The Givenchy Antigona seems to be loved by so many because of its simplicity. It is a structured bag with clean lines, so it has a very sophisticated, sleek aesthetic but with a little bit of edginess. Similar to other bags like the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour, the Antigona is a traditional bag style with a modernized look.

Features include:

  • Two Top Handles
  • Detachable Strap for crossbody wear
  • Top Zip Closure
  • Interior Zip Pocket and Two Slip Pickets

The Givenchy Antigona comes in three sizes: Mini, Small, and Medium.

Common materials include Smooth, Box, or Textured Calfskin, Grained Goatskin, and exotics such as Python, Ostrich and Crocodile.

Neutral Lovers

The Antigona is a very minimalist bag with clean lines, which is why it is perfect for those who like a more simple, understated aesthetic. Many people tend to buy Antigona bags in more neutral colors like black, nude, and light pink so that the shape of the bag can speak for itself.
