THE GIVENCHY ANTIGONA
Buoyed by the success of the Nightingale bag, released in 2005, the Givenchy house launches in 2011 a new it-bag called Antigona.
Made in Italy, this rugged leather bag, lined with sturdy canvas, has a bowling shape with graphic lines, a zipper and two short and rigid handles relayed by a removable shoulder strap.
Since then, the Antigona bag is one of the most iconic models of the brand and appears on the shoulders of the greatest celebrities: Rihanna, Amanda Seyfried, Kelly Rowland, Nicole Richie or Charlize Theron.

With several years of experience in the confection, he opened his Parisian shop in 1951 and soon began to walk behind the scenes of the first fashion shows with his creations.
