Ten Loves: Givenchy Antigona Soft

What exactly transforms a bag into an It bag? Well, we don’t know the exact credentials, but if Beyoncé, Rihanna, Kate Moss and Gisele have all been spotted carrying it, we’re pretty sure that seals the deal. First debuting during the AW10 shows, the Givenchy Antigona quickly rose to become a house signature. Reinterpreting Givenchy’s Boston silhouette, the bag takes its inspiration from the Greek mythology heroine Antigona, becoming a must-have over the years due to its sculptural, rigid silhouette.

Now 10 years on, the Antigona family has a new member. Described as “a supple, more relaxed version of its elder sister”, the Antigona Soft is fluid in its structure. Made out of a buttery-smooth calfskin, the bag now folds at the sides into a unique shape. Available in both medium and large formats, the bag is equipped with zip pulls, side straps with turn-lock fastenings and a compartment inside to store your cards. Fitted with a removable shoulder strap, the Antigona Soft looks fantastic when scooped under the arm like a clutch – serving woman-on-the-go-who-has-no-time-to-stop-and-chat realness. We wouldn’t have it any other way.

The Givenchy Antigona Soft is available to buy online and in select stores now.
