This Fall, Givenchy celebrates the 10th anniversary of its iconic Antigona handbag by unveiling the Antigona Soft, a supple, more relaxed version of its elder sister.
Inspired by the heroine of Greek mythology, the now-classic Antigona, which debuted for Fall-Winter 2010, reinterpreted the House’s signature Boston shape and quickly became a House signature. Its architectural, rigid construction featured a tension between feminine and masculine allure — a duality that defines the Givenchy aesthetic. Today, this timeless modern style has grown into a full-fledged collection of accessories for women and men.
The Antigona Soft gamely plays on contradiction. Building on Givenchy duality, it offers a counterpoint to the original Antigona by blending sleek lines with suppleness. To the structured, graphic statement of a classic, the Antigona Soft replies with serene languor. Like a favorite leather coat, the Antigona Soft conveys a versatile, second-skin sensuality.
