GIVENCHY F/W'11 ANTIGONA
The Antigona by Givenchy is one of the brand's classic bags. Be it as it may, I've found it to be too classic, if you guys catch my drift. My mind was changed by the recent F/W'11 variations of the Antigona and I must say I fell in love! First up is this gorgeous Bi-Color Antigona with midnight-navy trimmings and a soft black body. This combination gives the bag the right amount of character, dimension and definition - making it stand out from other bags of the same sort. Retailing for $2480 at Barneys New York, it's a.Must Have piece given it's classic shape updated with a modern twist.
Another piece that caught my interest would be the Cut-Out Antigona. Some say this is a bit too far off the edge, but I say isn't fashion always about pushing boundaries? Though it does border on looking too costume-y [think Batman], it's still a piece that has the right amount of attitude and pizzazz - perfect in bringing to life muted fall outfits or even classic looks. It retails for $2780 via Barneys New York.
Will update this article if and when I get more information of it's availability in Singapore, otherwise head on down to Barneys New York to grab your very own piece of classic luxury. Nonetheless, we can all gawk at the quintessential beauty of it...for now.
